The Best Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever (Vegan)

The title is quite the proclamation, but I stand by it!

I’ve seen a few variations of these cookies floating around the web and finally had to try them.

OMG. I’m totally not the type to say or write or even think ‘OMG’, but OMG.

These are the best gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, chocolate chip cookies…ever…


I have to say, though, what makes them so great for me is the fact that they require so little sweetness to be really stellar.

The Best Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 9
  • 1 c. almond meal
  • scant ¼ t. sea salt
  • ⅛ t. baking soda
  • ¼ t. cinnamon, optional, but delicious!
  • 3 T. coconut oil or butter, melted
  • 2 T. honey or maple syrup
  • 1½ t. vanilla
  • ½-1 t. water, only if/as needed
  • 2-4 T. chopped dark chocolate, depending on your personal preference (I used 3 T.)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the almond meal, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  3. Stir in the coconut oil, honey/maple syrup, and vanilla.
  4. Add in water as needed to bring everything together.
  5. Stir in the chopped chocolate last.
  6. Bake for 10-11 minutes on a well oiled or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet (the edges should be golden).
  7. Let them sit on the pan for 5-10 minutes (they firm up during this time, so this is an important step!).
  8. Remove and enjoy!

Adapted from this recipe


I got about 9 smallish cookies from this dough, but feel free to make them as big (or small) as you desire!

These have a buttery, modestly sweet taste that’s complimented perfectly by the dark chocolate. The cinnamon gives it a little spice that pairs well with all of the other ingredients.


These are delicious right out of the freezer, if you like your cookies cold like me. :-D

I hope you all take some time this weekend to give these cookies a try! :-)

UPDATE: For those of you with almond or nut allergies, I have successfully made these with sunflower seed meal (using the same amount), and they have turned out great!

      I made these with coconut sugar and they taste great. They are not shaped like cookies when they are cooked. They flatten out. They are very soft. A coworker tried them and wants some more.

      Sorry, I actually did not mean dried almond pulp. I’ve actually tried it that way, and it WILL NOT work! I believe it lacks the fat that is needed here.

    When I read the title of this post I was like, “Wow, she’s pretty damn confident there….” but now that I’ve read the recipe I can see why ;)

    I love how simple these are, that I have all the ingredients in my pantry and that they are paleo AND vegan! If I didn’t already have 4 kinds of cookies in my fridge (baking party with a friend) I would make these now. I guess they’ll have to wait a few days. Darn!

          Hi Jenn, I haven’t tried them with coconut flour. I haven’t worked with it much, so I’m not sure on how to substitute it for the almond meal. I think I read once that one cup of flour is equal to 1/3 cup of coconut flour, but that’s just a guess. Glad the almond flour turned out for you! :-)

    Lauren, these cookies are so amazing! I’ve been experimenting with many different recipes and these are by far the best yet! It’s also fantastic to come across a recipe that uses ingredients I always have on hand in the pantry and can be whipped up for surprise guests.

    Omg, I made these last night and they came out delicous! Two things, though; is the serving size really 9? Or did you mean to say the reciepe yields 9 cookies?

    Secondly, although my batch tasted great the dough was really runny so i ended up with really flat cookies that were crisp on the ends and soft in the middle. They looked like crackers! To be honest It was a good mistake, lol. They reminded me of these flat, crunchy cookie type things my mom used to buy years ago from Costco. And I may half the honey, they were sweet little suckers! Anyway this is most definatley going in my “tried and true” reciepe booklet.

    • Lauren May 7, 2013 at 2:48 pm Reply

      Hi Denise,
      I’m happy you enjoyed them! I did mean 9 cookies, not serves 9 people, lol. As far as the batter goes, it sounds like you added too much water…? I’ve never seen them ‘runny’, if anything the batter gets too thick, hence the water. I’m glad it was a good mistake for you though!

    Do you think the almond meal could be substituted with coconut flour?

    • Lauren May 24, 2013 at 8:06 am Reply

      Coconut flour is kinda weird in how you substitute it. I’ve read that you use 1/4 cup of it for every 1 cup of flour. As far as using it in place of almond meal, I wouldn’t do a one to one exchange, as I think you’d end up with very dry cookies.

    • Lauren June 4, 2013 at 6:08 pm Reply

      Hmmm…the only other thing I can figure is there’s a difference in the consistency of our almond meals? You could also try mixing in the oil in a softened state, as opposed to it being melted. Just be sure the other ingredients are at room temperature. Glad you like the taste though!! :-D

They are such a great recipe to substitute for the high sugared sweets! Thank you!

So let’s see what they do to set these apart from the rest of the pack and what has them convinced they’re worth of the crown. They’re using almond meal, pretty standard, there’s some and maple syrup, and some coconut oil to round out all the sweet and fat you’ll be getting here. This is definitely a break from all of the meat and vegetables you’ll be taking in as part of your daily diet.

I also noted that the facts are based on using maple syrup. Using honey would up the amount by about a gram. No need to get so hostile. It’s just food.

    These are in the oven, I tweaked it a bit, mostly almond flour, but a couble tablespoons of coconut flour for giggles. Used enjoy life mini chocolate chips and a handful of chopped walnuts.

    OK, so I have made these cookies more times than I can count! Seriously. They’re hands down the BEST chocolate chip cookies!

    I think I’ve perfected them by using half coconut oil and half ghee and half honey and half maple syrup. It makes for the perfect combo! I also use almond flour instead of almond meal which seems to have a better consistency for the cookie. And I use the Enjoy Life chocolate chunks because….why not?…..they’re delish!

    Just tried them and balled them up. They did not flatten while cooking. Should I have flattened them prior to baking? I followed your recipe exactly except substituted 15 drops of vanilla stevia extract for 2 of the tablespoons of honey. Could that have kept them from flattening in the oven? Also, have you tried making these with at least one egg in the recipe? Wondering how to work an egg in. Thanks!

      Hi Chris,

      I think the problem was substituting the honey. I don’t usually have to flatten or manipulate them in any way, I just dollop the batter onto the sheet. I haven’t tried them with an egg either, but I think another commenter had success with that! Good luck if you try them again!

    Hi! I just made these cookies and they were delicious! However, they were SUPER oily, like I was wiping excess oil up with a paper towel before I baked them because there was that much oil. I didn’t add any extra water, either. Any idea what caused this or what I could do next time to prevent this?

    • Lauren July 16, 2014 at 12:56 pm Reply

      Hi Shayla,

      I’m not sure since I’ve never had that problem and no one else has told me that! There is a decent amount of fat in here from both the coconut oil and the almond meal, so there is bound to be some of that….

    • Lauren July 16, 2014 at 1:00 pm Reply

      One other thing I just thought of, be sure not to overmix the ingredients…this will bring out the oil in the almond meal (like when you make a nut butter in a food processor) and that would definitely cause excess oiliness.

      • Shayla July 17, 2014 at 10:51 am Reply

        Thanks for the tips! I just made them again and the batter so MUCH better! I think the fault was all mine and I added too much oil or honey or overmixed the first time. They’re in the oven baking now and I can’t wait to eat this batch! :)

    How did you get your almond flour to be “Smooth?” I followed exactly as you said/showed and your batter even looked smooth compared to mine. I used Bob’s Red Mill finely ground almond meal/flour. The cookies look nutty not smooth like a regular cooked baked with regular flour. Any suggestions?

      Hi Tina,

      I’m not entirely sure what you mean…I used TJs almond meal, which also has a ‘nutty’ look to it. Almond flour doesn’t have the brown flecks in it (if that’s what is troubling you), so maybe that would work better?

    Can you substitute the almond flour with another type of flour? I’ve read the comments above re coconut flour so I will not be using. A regular all-purpose flour or brown rice? (just trying to think of what I already have in my pantry)

    • Lauren September 23, 2014 at 8:22 am Reply

      Almond flour is unique in that it contains a decent amount of fat, which lends itself to the ‘buttery’ taste of the cookie. I’ve personally tried oat flour, but resulting cookie is quite dry. You may be better off looking for another recipe or holding off for the correct flour.

  139. Melissa V. September 23, 2014 at 4:27 pm Reply

    I really like these cookies but have one problem when making them. I end up with about half the amount of batter you show above. Did you by chance use a liquid measure cup instead of one for dry ingredients, for measuring the almond flour? It looks like way more than a cup in your video. My batter is also more of a paste. Delicious, all the same!

    Would this recipe work with oatmeal flour (just grinding my own oats)? I am allergic to almonds and I don’t want to risk it with the almond meal. I have been looking for a good vegan chocolate chip cookie without a ton of ingredients or trying to figure out ratios of different flours for a long time and came across this one. I love your website! Thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful recipes with all of us :)

    Thank you so much! Instead of Stevia how much sugar would you say to use? I cannot have stevia, for some reason it gives me headaches. I forgot to add in the earlier post the videos you make are great! It always helps me to see someone making the recipe. Thank you again! :)

      I guess-timate that 1/8 teaspoon of powdered stevia is equivalent to about 2-4 tablespoons of sugar. I’m not sure if this is your situation, but the stevia with any other ingredients, like ‘natural flavors’ or maltodextrin, will give me headaches as well. The NOW brand, which is just pure stevia, agrees with me much better. Thanks for your comment about the videos! It’s good to know they’re helping someone. :-)

    Had high hoped for these, and they turned out just like the picture, visually. But they had WAY too much vanilla, at 1.5 tsp for only 9 cookies… most batches that make 24+ don’t even have that much vanilla in them. The result tastes oddly fruity (in a bad way). Also not sweet enough, I would personally double the sweetener, half the vanilla (at least. maybe even use only a quarter) and add a touch more salt… overall not happy with how these turned out. My husband took a bite of one, set it down, and walked away.

    All I can say is THANK YOU! I ate 6 of them in one night, but it could have been worse if I ate 6 of the unhealthy kind right?? :)

      Lol, that sounds like something I would say! ;) So happy you enjoyed them Christine!

    Thanks so much for this awesome recipe! I doubled the recipe, used less butter, added oats/chia seeds/a little bit of coconut – they’re amazing! I’ve tried so many cookie recipes with our refined sugar and they always end up tasting like cardboard, but these are so fresh and delicious!!!! THANK YOU!
