almond meal chip cookies

IT IS FRIDAY!! whoop whoop

thanks for the sweet comments on our arms and abs. and sooooo happy we have inspired so many of you to do more planks! seriously one of the easiest things you can do for your whole body. not only are they great for the body, but good for the mind too! it is very challenging to try to stay put. and for those of you that asked how we do plank, check out our video here holding plank for 2 minutes the first time. now that we go longer, sometimes we move all around (up, down, side to side). we will do another video here shortly.

gluten free almond meal cookies

okay, okay now for the easy recipe we have for you today.

we have been meaning to make almond cookies for some time. it has been awhile since we have made almond chip dough ball cookies.

these almond meal chocolate chip cookies are soft, not to sweet, with a nice texture from the almond meal…. oh just so perfect.

almond grain free chip cookies

as much as we love raw cookies, nothing beats a warm cookie right out of the oven, do you agree?

low in sugar almond cookies

we used whole almonds to make these cookies. you can soak them before had, but you will want to dry them out. we just place 1 cup of whole almonds into a food processor and pulse till crumbly. and then scoop out our desired amount of almond flour.

we kind of liked that these cookies were more dry than moist. a nice change. and we loved the texture that using freshly ground almonds provided these cookies.

gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe

pure2raw recipe: almond meal chocolate chip cookies (free of grains, gluten, wheat, soy, dairy, and low in sugar)

prep time – 5 minutes

bake time – 10 -12 minutes at 350 degrees


  • 2/3 cup almond flour*
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 whole egg**
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips

*as we mentioned above, we took whole almonds and place in food processor. pulse till small pieces like flour. it will be a little chunky, which we liked!

**we have not tested these without an egg yet. but could do 1 1/2 tbsp flax with 3 tbsp water to make flax gel


once you have your almond flour made, place all ingredients into a bowl and stir together. batter will be slightly thick and dry. if too dry, add in about 2-4 tbsp coconut milk or almond milk.

scoop cookie dough batter onto cookie trays. using your fingers gently pat cookies flat or till desired thickness.

bake cookies at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.

let cool as they are delicate.


we stored our cookies in fridge. they will last for about a week to 2 weeks (if they last that long)

    Thanks for this amazing recipe!! I made these tonight for a party and everyone loved them. I only wish I’d saved a couple at home for myself :) Also wanted to let you know I subbed a flax egg and it worked perfect! I thought they might be a bit crumbly but they held together great.

  19. Yum! These look amazing!

  20. You have me craving cookies now! They look delicious!

  21. girls, I’ve made these THREE times in the last 2 weeks… that tells you how much my husband likes them :) I did them with the flax egg, and worked perfectly. The first time I made them, my coconut oil was pretty hard and did NOT want to mix into the batter… so I added a touch of almond milk, and my husband devoured them. He loved the soft texture, because healthy cookies always wind up being pretty chewy… The 2nd time I made them, I melted the coconut oil before adding the rest of the ingredients, and I thought they were perfect but my husband preferred the soft ones. Oh, and the 2nd & 3rd time I made them, I subbed protein powder for part of the coconut flour – I did 1/3 cup each of brown rice protein, coconut flour and almond meal. It was fantastic! My husband thanks you for this recipe ;)
