Vegan. Gluten free. High protein and healthy fats. Low in sugar. Rich, chewy, chocolatey, delicious homestyle chocolate chip cookies. These Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies will keep your kids running at high energy levels for hours!
I love these Vegan Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies for my kids because they are lower in sugar than most of their kind, they have no white flour, and they are packed with nutrition thanks to almond flour. I don’t know about your kids, but none of mine like almond butter or even just snacking on almonds. But chocolate chip cookies made with almond flour? Yep, they’re down with that.
This recipe is also great because it only calls for 8 ingredients and you can use 1 bowl! Talk about simple.
I usually get my almond flour in the bulk section at Winco. It’s around $6 per pound so it’s not the cheapest of ingredients, but that price is a lot better than some of the fancy almond flours you might find at Whole Foods. It’s also pretty cheap at Trader Joe’s if you have one near you. It’s no secret I love that store and do most of my shopping there! (update: I wrote a post about everything I buy at Trader Joe’s)
Enjoy! You won’t believe how yummy these cookies are without any butter, eggs or white flour. Try them today!

Cream together brown sugar and coconut oil with a wooden spoon in a large bowl.
Add baking soda, salt, vanilla and the flax egg. Mix well.
