Chocolate Chip Cookies (Grain Free)

These grain free Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect combination of moist, sweet and a subtle hint of salt.  I would suggest making a double batch as they won't be around for long. As tempting as they are, be sure to let them cool throughly to ensure they hold together.

  • Add the almond flour, salt, palm sugar, bicarbonate of soda & xanthan gum (if using) into a food processor and pulse until well mixed.
  • Drizzle in the melted coconut oil and brown rice syrup and pulse again.  Make sure the coconut oil is not too warm otherwise the chocolate chips will melt.

  • Divide and shape into cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let them cool before attempting to eat otherwise they will fall apart!

    As I have to follow a grain free diet, it is usually quite hard to find treats that really taste like treats. I was so happy to come across these paleo chocolate chip cookies – they are absolutely delicious and were super easy to make. The only problem will be keeping them on my ‘treat’ list rather than on my ‘5-a-day’ list!!
