  • Method: Oven
  • Cuisine: North American


  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1/3 cup cane or coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, baking soda and salt. Beat with an electric mixer until well combined, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add coconut oil and beat a bit more to incorporate. Add almond flour and using a spatula (mixer in the beginning and then spatula at the end), mix until the dough forms. Add chocolate chips and give a few more stirs to incorporate.
  4. Using small cookie dough scoop, place small balls of dough on a baking sheet pressing with your hands to flatten them a bit. Leave about 2″ between the cookies – cookies spread a bit but not much.
  5. For more soft baked with a bit of chew outside almond flour chocolate chip cookies, bake at 350 degrees F for 20-23 minutes. For more crunchy on the outside but still chewy inside almond flour chocolate chip cookies, bake at 375 degrees F for 15 ish minutes. Time is for regular oven. Convection oven bakes twice faster. Check which one you have before baking.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before removing onto cooling rack to cool a bit more.

Store: Keep in a cool dry place uncovered or in a container with some ventilation. If you put them into covered container they soften.

Freeze: In an airtight container for up to 3 months.


Recipe tested and recommended cooking time is for regular oven. Convection oven bakes twice faster which is a common default for new ovens. Check which one you have before baking.

Also older ovens may not have correct T and all ovens vary. Keep an eye on cookies after 7 minutes because almond flour browns fast.
