Paleo & Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

A Recipe By

Author Notes:

These cookies are almost too good to be true. They’re grain-free, egg-free and naturally sweetened. They’re properly combined and to top that off, they’re vegan. They also happen to be incredibly easy to make and absolutely delicious–> the kind of cookie that you can whip together the moment a cookie-craving strikes, without suffering from a crazy sugar-crash later! I recommend making a double batch and stashing them in your freezer for “emergencies.” 


Makes 2 dozen

  • 2 cups almond meal, or almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, softened (non-vegans can use butter)
  • 3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips

Extra Notes:

WARNING: Cookies may look crumbly at first but the final product looks normal.


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond meal, salt, and baking soda, then add the coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix well.
