These Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies are paleo-friendly, gluten-free, and have the best cookie texture...ever!


  • 1 Hand Mixer OR Stand Mixer  love my KichenAid Hand Mixer as a more budget-friendly option, but if you're a serious baker or just want to splurge, you can't go wrong with a Classic Stand Mixer. These bad boys are not cheap, but they last forever!
  • 1 Baking Sheet You also can't go wrong with a set of solid baking sheets. I love this set from Williams Sonoma, that comes with 3 different sizes!


  • 1/2 cup refined coconut oil, melted and cooled (or ghee)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temp (or flax egg)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 heaping cup dairy-free chocolate chips or chunks


  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the coconut oil/ghee, coconut sugar, egg/flax egg, and vanilla, until smooth.
  • Add the almond flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda, and mix together until incorporated.
  • Next, fold in the chocolate chunks/chips.
  • Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes, for the best result.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, form 12 cookies and line them up on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes, until the cookies begin to turn golden at the edges - if they look soft when they come out of the oven, that is ok! They will settle and achieve the perfect chewy texture.
  • Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and enjoy!
