Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies – A gluten free, dairy free cookie that tastes just like the “real” thing. Crispy around the edges, tender in the middle, and loaded with chocolate chips! (Gluten free, paleo friendly)
We hit our 5 year gluten and dairy free “anniversary” on Monday! 5 years ago on the 15th, we gave Sophie her 2 year old birthday cake, and the next day went cold turkey at the recommendation of her developmental pediatrician. Some things were easier to adapt to than others (5 years ago the gluten free bread situation was ROUGH. Also: CHEESE.). One thing I really missed was a really, REALLY good chocolate chip cookie.
I’ve had some very good ones over the years, so it was disappointing that so many of the gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipes I tried were…lackluster. As a newbie to GFDF baking (when paleo and gluten free blogs were scarce), I had a LOT of trial and error to figure things out. Emphasis on error.
Finally, we landed on this amazing gluten free, dairy free chocolate chip cookie that hits all my favorite things–lightly crispy and caramelized around the edges with a soft, chewy center and PLENTY of chocolate chips. These almond flour chocolate chip cookies are the REAL deal.
