Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies made with almond flour

This is different post from my usual post on baking something pretty.  These cookies may not look like much, but they are by far the best gluten-free cookies I have ever eaten! Most gluten-free cookies I’ve had are dry or crumbly and don’t have much flavor.  These are moist and chewy and delicious!  Even if you eat gluten, you will want to try these cookies!  I ate them at a potluck and had to get the recipe.  They are easy to make.  In addition to being gluten-free, these cookies are free of refined sugar or any animal products.  All the ingredients are available at Trader Joe’s.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies


3 cups blanched almond flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup maple syrup
