The most deliciously fluffy, thick, and flavorful bakery style chocolate chip cookies. The most popular cookies on the blog that taste like a Toll House cookies!

Olive oil adds a rich, smooth flavor to baked goods. It might sound strange to some, but olive oil + chocolate are really delicious together. Plus, it’s a healthy fat packed with omega-3’s.

High quality, healthy fats are so important in a healthy diet. I pay close attention to the fats I consume- even in baked goods/desserts! Olive oil is a long standing favorite of mine (yes i am very Italian and olive oil basically runs through my veins- but it’s also loaded with health benefits :).

I can’t believe the way these cookies turned out- the texture and taste is out of this world good. They taste like a thick and chewy bakery style cookie- but made with real and wholesome ingredients. free of grains, refined sugars, and made with healthy fats. Homemade is always best!

P.S. I recently made these into “monster cookies” using chocolate gems and they were DELICIOUS! So you can really use any type of baking chocolate you have on hand 🙂

I can’t wait for you guys to try these! Be sure to keep the recipe as is for the best results! Enjoy xx

  1. Genna says:

    These cookies are life! The recipe is SO easy and they’re sooo good — I made them last night and I can’t stop snacking on them. And I love how simple the ingredients are 🙂

  2. Hayley J says:

    This are a staple for my GF FF diet! They are a crowd pleaser for those who aren’t even GF or DF!

  3. Lilly says:

    These cookies are ADDICTING. My mom has the biggest sweet tooth but found out a few years ago that she is gluten and dairy intolerant. I showed her this recipe and she genuinely makes these every week (or if she doesn’t get to making the cookies, keeps a bowl of dough in the fridge). When I first brought her a batch she said that she hadn’t truly enjoyed a cookie since her diagnosis until these. SO GOOD

  4. Diedri says:

    These are the best and my children had no idea how good they were for them. Luv your recipes!!

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      So happy you and the whole fam can enjoy these 🙂 Thank you so much Diedri!!

      • Wholesome Ingredient Lover says:

        Keep your recipes coming! I look at your page often for ideas – love the wholesome ingredients and healthy meals.

  5. Cara says:

    These are literally the best cookies on the internet. I make them all the time and I eat them all so fast but I feel like these would stay perfect even after a few days (I don’t know – they’ve never actually lasted that long for me) I make a bunch Sunday night and end up eating the few that are left for breakfast the day. Everyone should be required to make these at least once in their life to know what true happiness feels like!!

  6. Madeline says:

    I absolutely love these cookies! Delicious, quick, and easy to make. I make a batch almost once a week!

  7. Melanie says:

    Just tried these and can’t believe how amazing they are!!! They really do taste like the real deal. Thank you for this recipe!

  8. Maddie says:

    These are the best cookies!!! They are loved by all and hands down my favorite healthier choc chip cookie that I have tried.

  9. Colleen says:

    Get. Out. Of. Town. These cookies are insanely good and similar to that perfect chocolate chip cookie you grew up eating BUT they are grain free and have so much less guilt. I doubled the batch and brought them to thanksgiving. I’m trying to introduce the concept to my family that there are alternative choices when it comes to ingredients even in desserts.

  10. Tori Horton says:

    So easy to make, my friends and family always try to steal them from me! Favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe ever!

  11. Katrina says:

    Truly the greatest cookie recipe I’ve ever found. And I bake a lot. A LOT. They are chewy and moist and so beyond flavourful. Every time I make these they disappear in less than 24 hours. Run don’t walk to the store, buy the ingredients and get baking people! ❤️

  12. Gillian says:

    This recipe is what led me to discover gathered nutrition (previously bitesbymia ;)) and boy am I glad I did. These cookies are so easy and so delicious. They’re the only chocolate chip cookies I make! Plus I love a good butter substitute. You have to make these!!

  13. Amber says:

    These are my absolute favorite chocolate chip cookies! They’re so quick and easy to make plus I feel good about the ingredients! Bonus points that I have gestational diabetes and these don’t raise my blood sugar ????

  14. Alex says:

    If you haven’t eaten these yet you are not living. The freaking best cookies in the world!!!

  15. Kayla says:

    The best chocolate chip cookies! Definitely my go to

  16. Hannah says:

    The BEST gf cookies ever.

  17. Kendyl says:

    The BEST cookies ever. Make them once a week. YUM!!

  18. Madeline says:

    Finally made these cookies and now have my favorite go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. The main thing for me, is I’ve had gluten free cookies be really crumbly. These have the perfect texture! Moist and they hold together!

  19. Katie says:

    New staple in the house!

  20. Georgie Wallden says:

    I think I’ve made this about 20 times in past few months. I love making cookies that use almond flour because I feel better about eating them. That being said I’ve tried tons of recipes, and THIS is the BEST recipe by far. My family requests this weekly. Thank you for this!!!!!

  21. Caoilin D says:

    These are super tasty!! I made them the first time as-directed and really enjoyed them. Today I made them with coconut flour instead (just bc almond flour was so expensive). Still tasty, but the almond flour is definitely better. These are loosely the adjustments I made since coconut flour is much more absorbent!

    – Instead of almond flour, 1 cup of coconut flour
    – Use 4 eggs TOTAL so add an extra egg
    – Add a *little* more sugar than originally directed (maybe like 1/8 a cup? just to taste)

    Again; the almond flour tastes much better, but in case you want to try coconut for whatever reason that’s what worked for me!

  22. Amber says:

    These are AMAZING. Super easy to make, amazing texture and flavor, and I used Hu Kitchen chocolate and WOW! SO good!

  23. Lindsey Keller says:

    Hands down the best choc chip cookies I’ve ever had or made. They sub for healthier ingredients so you don’t feel as guilty. I make these easily every other week!

  24. Lillie says:

    I can’t even make other cookies anymore because nothing compares to these! They’re so quick and easy and taste absolutely amazing. All of my friends can’t even believe they’re grain free. Love this recipe!

  25. Maria says:

    I am obsessed with these cookies!! Every time I make them (which is often) my family just demolishes them. They are so fluffy, chewy, and easy to make! I usually make them with brown sugar instead of coconut sugar but they still turn out fantastic!

  26. Henni says:

    I admit I was a little confused with the olive oil taste after my first bite but once you get it it’s heaven!
    These cookies are so delicious and so easy to make!
    Just made another sheet and didn’t have enough almond flour so I used oat flour for the remaining amount needed. Consistency is not as good but they actually get better after a couple of days in the fridge and are super yummy too!

  27. Joanna M. says:

    So easy and delicious! I love the chewy texture. I think I under baked them slightly, but there’s no way to really mess these cookies up 🙂 Thanks for the excellent recipe!

  28. Jenn says:

    My husband had no idea these were not the classic Nestle cookies we grew up making. SO much better though! Staple in our household.

  29. Jamie says:

    In love these simple and tasty cookies! I sent the recipe to my Danish friend, who now lives in The Netherlands, and she’s been baking them non-stop for her family, so your recipes now have international reach! This recipe is absolutely my go-to now for any pot-luck or ‘gathering’ with my friends. I’ll have to bake them after quarantine for my housewarming 🙂

  30. Mary says:

    These are delicious! The best grain-free cookies I have ever made, and I have tried a ton of recipes. These will be a staple in my kitchen for sure!

  31. Sara says:

    AMAZING! I’ve been baking a lot with almond flour for Passover and these were SO good. I substituted canola oil for olive oil (a bit shy that my taste testers would find olive oil too strong) and did half white sugar / half brown sugar. They spread slightly but are still a good thickness with a chewy center. 10 out 10 in my book! Thanks Mia!

  32. Emily says:

    Just made these and they are amazing!

  33. Stacy says:

    I made these cookies with regular refined sugar and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and they were amazing! I’m amazed at how easy they were to make! I love them with the almond flour since it comes with such a great texture.

    My recommendation would be to take them out at the 11 minute mark, even if you think they are underdone. The first time I was afraid they were too wobbly but they definitely settled after they cooled, and I ended up slightly burning. mine on top. But still very delicious!

  34. Natasha says:

    I made these cookies with 1/2 cup of coconut sugar instead of 3/4s cup (just to cut down a bit) and they were still absolutely perfect and delicious! Thick yet moist and so so yummy!

  35. Juliet says:

    I want to start off by saying I have never commented on a recipe before – these cookies are THAT good. I was skeptical about the olive oil at first but WOW I am 100% on board now. Best gluten free cookie recipe I have ever made. Thank you!!!

  36. Maja says:

    These cookies are the best ever. Love them so much. My all family do. I would like to bake them every day. The best , you never buy something like that at store. So good , so easy to bake and healthy. Thanks so much!!!

  37. Chantel says:

    These are delicious but for some reason mine stayed in ball form they only spread out a little. I followed the recipe and didn’t use any substitutions??

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Hi! Did you slightly flatten the balls of dough before baking? That’s so strange they didn’t spread!

  38. Linda says:

    WOW! Great recipe!

  39. Addison Tompi says:

    Just like the description: “The most deliciously fluffy, thick, and flavorful bakery style chocolate chip cookies.” SO GOOD! I actually subbed the almond flour for oat flour cause it’s all I had on hand and they were still great. Highly recommend.

    I saved some dough in the fridge for later – excited to see how that batch turns out after being in the fridge.

    This recipe was also so quick – an easy staple for sure!

  40. Erum says:

    So so good! I make these over and over again and my friends have started making them too. So much better than traditional chocolate chip cookies!

  41. Julia says:

    My husband and I are OBSESSED with these cookies. We discovered them during quarantine and made them so frequently that we both agreed we needed to scale back. They are SO addicting and so incredibly easy to make.

  42. A. Chalamet says:

    How long do these cookies last in the freezer?

  43. Catherine says:

    I’ve been gluten free for almost 6 years, and I baked and tasted my fair share of GF chocolate chip cookies. These are, without a doubt, the best I’ve ever had. They taste exactly like a classic chocolate chip cookie should taste. My new favorite and go-to!

  44. Anna says:

    So dang good and easy. One of the best gf and almond flour cookies I’ve ever had!! These are also vegan which is fab!!!!!

  45. Saba says:

    These were delicious, simple, and guilt-free. And the recipe yielded SO many cookies! I love olive oil, so I was instantly drawn to this recipe.
    I ended up baking them much longer than the recipe called for, as the cookies weren’t spreading like I was expecting from pictures. I think that I needed to smush them down a bit on the cookie sheet as opposed to having them in balls when going into the oven! Also, after some research, I learned that all almond flours aren’t created equal, so I think perhaps my almond flour had something to do with the spreading as well! Will be trying again soon 🙂

  46. Rachel says:

    These cookies are so fluffy and delicious! They were also super easy and quick to make! I don’t know how Mia does it.

  47. Emily says:

    Have made these beauties many times and they are still a fave and a crowd-pleaser. Usually reduce sugar to 1/2 cup. Have also made with hazelnut flour/almond flour 2:1 mixture and they’re just as lovely.

  48. Jillian says:

    I’ve made a lot of paleo cookies. These are the best by far. So good.

  49. Ly Nguyen says:

    I made these with my friend the other day and they turned out just as described! The perfect cake like yet crispy texture! Thank you so much!

  50. Caitlin says:

    Don’t even think about making these, just DO IT. They’re absolutely delicious. I spend a lot of time baking various types of cookies… these are a HUGE HIT! So chewy, decadent and delicious. I love how easy they are to mix together in a medium bowl too. No mixture required!

  51. Nikki says:

    Not gonna lie, I was hesitant about the olive oil flavor but once the cookies are done, you can’t even taste it and they’re so good! I love how simple and easy the recipe is!

  52. Katherine says:

    I’ve been meaning to make these cookies for forever and finally got around to it today. Can’t believe I waited so long! Insanely good, so easy, and love the clean, simple ingredients!

  53. ae says:

    Literally OBSESSED. These cookies were perfect and fluffy and chewy and delicious 🙂 An awesome option for making cookies with olive oil instead of butter!

  54. Carly says:

    I made these cookies with 1 cup almond flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour and it worked out perfectly!

  55. Haley says:

    Found this recipe one month ago and I’ve already made it five times! I brought them to my nieces six year birthday and she asked where I bought them so her Mom could buy them.

  56. Santana says:


  57. Shafiq says:

    There are so good! However, my cookies didn’t spread in the oven, and I had to halfway through flattening them. Any clue why?! I thought ratios were measured accurately.

  58. Debbie says:

    I was skeptical when I read the ingredients, but these cookies are awesome. My friends agree!

  59. Jennifer says:

    I make these about once every 2-3 weeks. They are amazing! And you don’t want to binge on them like you would with regular refined sugar cookies. I leave out the salt, it never seems to dissolve. I LOVE them, I have shared this recipe and blog with all my friends, including my parents. Delish!!!

  60. Mia,

    These cookies were THE BEST cookies I’ve ever had. I love baking with olive oil and when I read all of these reviews I knew I had to try! They are so gooey and delicious in the center and the olive oil adds an incredible depth of flavor! It really does bring out all the flavors of the chocolate and rich coconut sugar.

    Thank you!

  61. Meredith Parrish says:

    WARNING: These cookies are SO delicious, they won’t stand a chance of lasting in your home for more than 2 days! I made a batch this past Sunday and literally ate the last 2 this morning for breakfast (Tuesday). The best part is, I don’t have major guilt about it with the ingredients being nutrient dense. It was my first time baking these gems, and my first time ever eating an ENTIRE batch of cookies in 2 days, hah! Literally cannot wait to make them again! Xo’s

  62. Sarah David says:

    THESE ARE AMAZING. I’ve tried so many DF & GF cookie recipes looking for the perfect tasting buttery yet healthy cookie recipe & these are IT. My boyfriend (who isn’t GF or DF) requested these over toll house cookies. Not to mention they are the easiest things to prep & can be done in like 5 minutes.

  63. Allison says:

    Soooo good!!

  64. Whitney P. says:

    This is a holy grail recipe! Best GF DF cookies I’ve made. I am so glad I follow your page!

  65. Lianna says:

    Yummy! I ran out of almond flour at about 3/4 cup so I used whole wheat flour, a little over a cup and they came out great. So delicious and SO easy! Can’t wait to make these for my aunt who is gluten free! Thanks so much for the great recipe, as always!

  66. Fiona says:

    these are one of the best chocolate chip cookies i’ve had in a while. and that comes from a picky eater. but i was wondering what the macros for this recipe are?

  67. Fiona says:

    These are one of the best chocolate chip cookies i’ve had in a while (and that comes from a picky eater) But i was wondering what the macros for this recipe are?

  68. MacKenzie says:

    These are seriously DELICIOUS. If you haven’t made them, you’re missing out. They taste like bakery cookies. My fiancé is a firm fan of your typical chocolate chip cookie, and he LOVES these so much he requests them! They’ve become a staple dessert recipe for us when we’re craving something sweet!

  69. Shelby says:

    just had to make these after reading the reviews and they do not disappoint! I’m vegan and used a flax egg and they turned out great! Thanks Mia!

  70. Chelsea says:

    These cookies. The texture. The flavor. Perfect amount of chew. Love Mia’s recipes for their simplicity and incredible flavor – this cookie recipe is another winner!

  71. Mary says:

    These are on weekly rotation. So good!!

  72. Julia Orloff says:

    LOVE this recipe!! Made it for my boyfriend and he loved it! I will be making this again!

  73. Johanna says:

    The best cookies! You would never know they’re gluten free 🙂

  74. Amy says:

    Oh my ********. I was sceptical about making these because of the olive oil and just because I didn’t think it would ever be possible to make yummy GF dairy free cookies. But OMG. These are UNBELIEVABLE. They are gooey, and chewy, and soft, and absolutely delicious. Cannot put it into words, they are honestly life changing. I had 3 with ice cream all to myself last night, I just couldn’t help but go back for more and more!I And my family all had 2 each as well! Can’t wait to make them again.

  75. Jacqueline Dubcak says:

    Amazing texture! Crunchy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside!

  76. McKenzie says:

    My new go to cookie recipe!!! Everyone loves them.

  77. Jenn says:

    So easy to make. So delicious! Constantly making these when I have a craving for just a classic chocolate chip cookie.

  78. Caitlin says:

    I have made these cookies over 10 times in the last 6 months! Everyone I make them for LOVES them. Even my dad who pretends to dislike all grain free things. They are never a let down! My friend always says they taste like a cloud ????

  79. Natalie Schalk says:

    My go-to cookie recipe! SO GOOD and guilt free!

  80. Allyson says:

    i’m the only one in my family allergic to gluten and dairy, and i make these all the time; the whole family LOVES them!! perfect amount of sweetness and the texture is to d i e for!!

  81. Emily says:

    THESE COOKIES ARE INSANE! I have friends and family members who are balancing utter happiness that I shared this recipe with them and also frustration as they cannot stop making them!! They are so good and have become my fave cookie recipe to make!!

  82. Eden L says:

    Amazing! If you think the olive oil taste is too strong, use avocado oil with a little OO and the mix is really perfect.

  83. Micaela says:

    So I’m a little up set…not at all with this recipe, but with myself for waiting so long to make it. I was a bit skeptical about olive oil in cookies and for sure thought if you’ve tried one chocolate chip cookie recipe you’ve tried them all but OMGAWD was I wrong-they’re so good! Mia continues to prove why she is one of my top goto recipe developers!!

  84. Nini says:

    Can I substitute the olive oil for coconut oil?

  85. Hayley says:

    These are better than regular chocolate chip cookies I’m in love!!! The batter took me literally FIVE minutes to make, so I put the dough in a tupperware in the fridge and every night I scoop out the dough to make fresh cookies!

  86. Emily C says:

    Healthy, soft cookies that taste exactly like Tollhouse – what more could you want? Must make!!!

  87. Audrey says:

    These were sooo yummy! Perfect texture and not too sweet- everyone in my family loved them!

  88. Dani says:

    I have been trying to limit my dairy and gluten intake but I have a huge sweet tooth. These cookies are amazing. I am a chocolate chip cookie connoisseur. The fact that these do not use real flour or sugar and taste this good should be a crime.

    p.s try putting them in the freezer to store them and snack on.. game.changer.

  89. Debby says:

    Obsessed with this recipe!
    I swapped out the coconut sugar for terbinado (demerara) sugar and my family and I cannot get enough of these. The texture and chewiness can’t be beat! It tastes like a butter based cookie.Thank you!!!

  90. Lizzie Wagner says:

    Ok so these cookies are absolutely delectable and everyone loves them- not just my gluten-free friends & family… EVERYONE. I make a batch for myself to inhale and another batch to share. #1 best cookies out there. Can’t say enough good things. Gooey consistency, perfect amount of chocolate, the list goes on. I never write reviews but these deserve a review!

  91. Michaela says:

    Sooooo good! I’m not even gf, df but I choose this recipe every time I make cookies!

  92. Gianna says:

    LOVE this recipe! Soooo delicious and easy to bake cannot stop making them!

  93. Izzy says:

    Just made your olive oil chocolate chip cookies and they were amazing!! I finally found an amazing recipe for healthier cookies that taste amazing + they didn’t turn out bad haha

    My family loved these cookies! I cant wait to make the lemon cake next!!

  94. Colleen says:

    Sooooo delicious! I used half almond flour and half gluten free all purpose flour because that’s what I had on hand and they still turned out amazing! Will definitely be making again in the future. Thanks for the recipe!

  95. karin says:

    I’m obsessively eating these partly to get them out of the house but mostly because they’re so dang good. Seriously the best.

  96. Katie says:

    These are unreal. I can’t stop making them! I always have to have extra dough in my freezer just in case. Love them so much – thank you!

  97. Andrea Bazemore says:

    Just baked the first batch and two cookies are gone already!
    Great recipe! The cookies are delicious and vert satisfying.

    I’m trying to go low carb so I used dark chocolate keto friendly chocolate chips; – is there a chart on the nutritional values?
    I may have missed it.

    Can’t wait to make these again!

    Thank you for sharing!

  98. Haley says:

    So simple, easy, and delicious!! New staple in my house for sure.

  99. Beth says:

    They are unreal!! They keep well for a few days and are very balanced and not overly sweet with the olive oil. Perfect balance of sweet and salt.

  100. Elena says:

    I will never make another chocolate chip cookie recipe!! These are seriously AMAZING. They’re so soft and moist!!

  101. Carmen Kiltz says:

    These cookies were easy to make. I would not rate them 5 stars however…I was skeptical about using baking soda as I find it always ruins the taste of baked goods, but I followed the recipe as directed. Unfortunately they don’t taste great with the baking soda. Can I use baking powder instead?
    They are also very oily so I will use less oil next time….

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Hi Carmen, I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy these. Most chocolate chip cookies use baking soda- it’s essential for them to bake properly. With only 1/2 tsp you really shouldn’t taste it at all! Baking powder will not work the same as the baking soda, so I don’t recommend it. They also shouldn’t be very oil. I’m not sure what happened there sorry to hear that!

  102. Bailey says:

    Hi Mia,

    Do you think you can substitute the sugar for a liquid sugar like honey or maple syrup ?

    Thanks Bailey

    • Mia Zarlengo says:

      Hi Bailey! I haven’t tried this so I can say for sure if it will change the texture of the cookie- I’m sorry! If I hear of anyone trying with success I will definitely make note of it!

  103. Nini says:

    Hi! Can I use homemade almond flour?????

  104. Fernanda says:

    These are the best cookies I’ve made in a long time. Truly delicious.

  105. Cgw says:

    These are my favorite variation of chocolate chip cookies EVER! I used 1/2 Hu kitchen gems (best chocolate chunks) and 1/2 walnuts bc I didn’t have enough chocolate. The cookie is soft and pillowy with a sweet flavor that is complimented by the nutty flavor of almond flour. I keep them in the freezer and they are still soft somehow. Will be making these on repeat!

  106. Claire says:

    Wow! I’ve tried so many paleo cookie recipes and this one is my favorite by far! My friends beg me to make them now and I’ve shared the recipe with over 5 people. Thanks Mia!

  107. Natalie Cummings says:

    Made these cookies last night. WOW! Best cookie recipe ever!!!!
    I look and follow Mia’s recipes almost everyday! Mia, thank you for sharing your love for healthy cooking/baking, my entire family loves all of your recipes (especially the butternut squash mac and cheese) 🙂

  108. Miriam S. says:

    on the weekly rotation and never disappoints!! thank you for this easy and delicious recipe 🙂

  109. Caleigh says:

    This has become the only chocolate chip cookie recipe we will make! My boyfriend + his friends are obsessed and go through a batch in a night. Such a soft and flavorful cookie! Once people try, they are always asking for the recipe + I recommend to everyone 🙂

  110. Sydney says:

    I absolutely LOVE these cookies. They’re the perfect texture, and so easy to make! I love to spread a little peanut butter over the top and enjoy one with a cup of coffee!

    They’re one of my go-to recipes to make for friends (or for me, myself, & I on a Friday night). 🙂 THANK YOU!

  111. Gabby says:

    I’m confused… 3/4 cup chocolate chips was way more than I needed for the amount of batter this recipe made. Am I the only person who experienced this?

    • Mia Swinehart says:

      Hi Gabby. I haven’t heard of anyone having this issue, I’m sorry! You do need to give it a minute for the chocolate chips to fold in. I like to use a rubber spatula for this, however the amount is correct!

  112. mariam says:

    Its my second time making these cookies in 1 week ! they are super addicting and my fam couldn’t believe these are made using olive oil and almond flour !
    thank you !

  113. Allison says:

    I make these all the time!! I’ve gotten so many comments that people can’t even tell they are healthy.

  114. Cindy Kao says:

    I have never commented on a recipe before, but I have to agree with the other commenters – this recipe was amazing! And so easy. My husband refused to eat my previous attempts at almond flour chocolate chip cookies, but he kept raving about this one. Really weird, actually. Why does this one work so well? Begs for further investigation and repeated cookie sampling, for the sake of science.

  115. Susi says:

    Our son told us about these cookies and at first, my husband was VERY skeptical of a olive oil cookie! But what the heck?! These are so gosh darn good! We use Lilly’s chips (stevia I stood sugar) for a truly guilty (free) pleasure. 😋

  116. Susi says:

    Truly my favorite cookie recipe ever!!! I’ve made them twice (back to back weeks) and am obsessed. Got my entire family hooked including my dad and brother who are big chocolate chip cookie guys and have a very high bar. When I told them the ingredients, they were amazed. So moist and chewy.

    I also feel great after eating them unlike other traditional cookies w butter, white sugar, white flour, etc. which upset my stomach. Thank you for this GEM!!! Xoxo

    I never write recipe comments but these are truly the BEST grain free cookies I have ever had. So moist, so chewy—I can’t believe the ingredients are so simple.

    Ohhh my lollipop! I will never use a different chocolate chip cookie recipe again! These are dense and chewy without the usual almond flour texture. Thanks for blessing us with this tasty treat❤️

  122. I have a craving for these every single week they’re my favorite sweet treat these days! Thanks for the incredible recipe !

  123. Jessie says:

    Is there a way to make these vegan?

  124. Jessie says:


    I feel good about eating chocolate chip cookies with this recipe 🙂

  125. Nick Lom says:

    Can I make this recipe using cassava flour and Swerve sugar substitute along with the olive oil ?

  126. Lynn says:

    I made these cookies about a month ago and my husband and I both love them! Did I miss the nutritional value section? I would love to know the calorie and carb count.
    Regardless, I will keep making these cookies because they are so delicious! Thank you for the recipe!

    Ok these are amazing and I make them a lot. However, I want people to know they these are not guilt free just because they don’t have sugar and flour. I did the nutrition and it’s about 375 calories per cookie. If you’re like me, you can easily eat 2 in one sitting! So just beware that these are grain free, but still very high calories.

      Thank you for posting this!
      AMAZING cookies, but yes high in macros, I think it’s important for people to know:)
      First time making them and will make again! (I also calculated the macros, I love that the ingredients are clean! But will try to tweak a bit to try to lower the macros a bit).
      Awesome cookies regardless xx

    Second recipe for chocolate chip cookies I’ve tried. I can stop looking now! These are so good, but they didn’t spread so I had to flatten them before baking. I didn’t change anything in the recipe but I will add walnuts next time. Thank you so much. I’m pretty new to grain free and I really appreciate people who take the time to perfect recipes for us to use and enjoy!

  129. Kyla says:

    These are my favorite cookies, by far! I bake them for every friend gathering, work event, and family holiday- every becomes OBSESSED. They’re known as my “health cookies”. These cookies are a MUST BAKE.

  130. D. Horner says:

    Can these cookies be made with not coconut sugar but with granular stevia? I do not use coconut sugar for anything else.

  131. Callahan says:

    The best cookies in the world!!!! Make these if you want people to like you.

  132. Sarah Rhoads says:

    Wow. So simple. So delicious. Must try!

  133. Olivia says:

    I made these for the first time in about a year and I forgot how good these are!! They’re perfectly chewy and sweet without being overpowering. And flaky sea salt on top is a must. Absolutely obsessed!

  134. Jenna C says:

    These are truly my favorite cookies ever!! So good. Everytime. Simple ingredient list and quick to prepare/bake. Can’t say enough about these yummy cookies!

  135. Linda says:

    I’ve made these many times, with different variations of add ins. They come out great every time! Just got done making a batch with white chocolate chips and chopped walnuts, so good! Love, love this recipe!

  136. Holly says:

    This is my go to cookie recipe. So easy to make, cookies are so soft and fluffy and made with simple real ingredients.

  137. Allison says:

    Is there a way to substitute the egg to make these vegan? Thank!

  138. Renee says:

    CRAZY! Who knew!?! These are amazing! Came up about 1/4c short on almond flour so subbed oat flour. Used plant based dark chips and walnuts. After rolling a few balls of dough I ground some pink himalayan salt into a bowl and dipped the tops in it then baked. Put the rest of the dough balls in an airtight container in the fridge so I can bake a few fresh every few days. They don’t last past the week and the dough keeps just fine. I’ve tried making sooooo many “gluten free” choc chip cookies but my search is OVER! (*will play with applesauce vs oil, and monkfruit vs coconut sugar in smaller batches in the future to lower the fat and the calories even more and maybe dairy free chips and/or sugar free chips variety). THANK YOU!
