  • 2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp almond milk, as needed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.
  • Mix the brown sugar, maple sugar, coconut oil into a large bowl. After whisking thoroughly, add vanilla extract and flex egg and whisk together. 
  • Using a rubber spatula, mix in the dry ingredients until well combined. If the mixture is too dry, add up to two tablespoons of almond milk (or water.) Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop the cookie dough (about 2 Tablespoons of dough per cookie) and roll into a ball. Place a few inches apart on the baking sheet and gently press down to flatten the cookie dough. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden and the center is set.
  • Remove from oven. Let cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling. Enjoy!



🔸Use 2 cups regular all-purpose flour (for non-gluten-free option)
🔸If you don’t have maple syrup, use 1/2 cup cane sugar
🔸If you want these cookies to be refined sugar-free, use 3/4 cups coconut sugar instead of brown sugar
🔸If you’re egg-friendly, use 1 egg instead of a flax egg
🔸Use 1/2  cup of butter (melted) instead of coconut oil 
You can freeze the cookie dough and save for later. Simply store the rolled cookie portions in an airtight container. When you are ready to enjoy, place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake as normal.
