Healthy Gluten Free, Vegan, Sugar Free, Chocolate Chunk Cookies

We’ve made the effort to remove all refined sugar, and prepared snacks from our house. Here’s a recipe worth trying. I like to think of it as a healthy spin on chocolate chip cookies. Toddler Approved, and inspired from Paleo Sweets, by @thekelseyale.



  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted or fractionated)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened baking chocolate (100% Cacao) cut into chunks.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium sized bowl combine the almond flour, arrowroot starch, and baking soda. Mix to combine.
  3. Combine vanilla paste, maple syrup, and coconut oil in a small bowl and mix.
  4. Add the liquid mixture to the almond flour mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  6. Use a tablespoon to portion the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leave 2 inches of space between each portion.
  7. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes, until the bottom of the cookies start to turn brown. I left my cookies in for 15 minutes and they were on the crispy side, pull yours out sooner if you like them soft.
  8. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.

I found most of the ingredients at my local supermarket, either The Great Canadian Superstore or Whole Foods. If you want to buy some of the ingredients online, I will recommend Amazon and I’ve provided a link right here.

Now sit back and enjoy your guilt free cookies. 👍
