A friend of mine gave my kids the cookies and they LOVED them! So I got the recipe from her and thought I’d share it with everyone who aim for gluten and/or grain free diet. Plus this recipe is good for people/kids who are allergic to eggs, since it calls for no eggs.


The only thing that I personally do not like about the recipe is that it calls for agave (which contains more free fructose that even high fructose corn syrup), so I am definitely planning on substituting agave with a combination of birch bark derived xylitol, coconut sugar and drops of stevia to enhance the sweeteners. Honey might be a better option, too though it too has plenty of free fructose.


So here is the recipe:


2 1/2 cups of Blanched Almond flour

1/2 teaspoon of celtic salt (himalayan or sea salt can be used instead)

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1/2 cup of oil (coconut, avocado, olive or grapeseed)

1 tablespoon of vanila extract

1/2 cup of agave (as I said, I will definitely substitute this one with less harmful sweeteners)

1 cup of dark chocolate chips (73% cocoa or more)


1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.

2. Stir together wet ingredients into a smaller bowl.

3. Mix wet ingredients into dry.

4. Form 1/2 inch balls and press onto a parchment lined baking sheet

5. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes.

6. Cool and serve.


buono appetito!

This looks like the recipe from I just made them yesterday. Clueless on how many I ate. I used honey instead of agave and macadamia oil instead of the others. Super yummy.

Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.
