So it’s been a little bit since I posted something sweet. I have been on a more savory trend, which probably just has to do with the colder weather. You know just craving all of the healthy comfort food I can get my hands on! 

BUT now I am baking with a gluten free and paleo version of one of my classic favorites, chocolate chip cookies! 

When you have dietary restrictions or are new to baking with gluten free ingredients, sometimes the results are not so great. But you are in luck, because I have taken the guesswork out of these for you! 

We are using almond flour and you can’t even tell! They are moist, chewy, and literally come out perfect every time you bake them!

Take them out of the oven and sprinkle them with sea salt, if using. 

Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. 

Can You Substitute Something Else for Almond Butter? 

Yes! You can also use any seed or nut butter you would like. If it’s not salted, you will want to add that to the dough.

How To Store

Once the almond flour cookies have cooled completely, place them in an airtight container for up to 5 days at room temperature. 

To freeze, once the baking sheet has cooled completely, place the whole sheet into the freezer for 30 minutes. Then put the cookies in a freezer bag, which will stay fresh for up to 2 months.
