- 1 ½ cups almond flour
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup or honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup dark chocolate chips (preferably dairy-free)
- Optional: ¼ cup chopped nuts or dried fruit for added tex- ture and flavor
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, bak- ing soda, and salt. Whisk together to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, ma- ple syrup (or honey), and vanilla extract until well combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until a dough-like consistency forms.
- Fold in the dark chocolate chips and any optional ingredients you choose, such as chopped nuts or dried fruit.
- Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, drop rounded portions of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Gently flatten each cookie with the back of a spoon.
- Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for approximately 10- 12 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown.
- Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once cooled, the low-sugar, dairy-free, and gluten-free choco- late chip cookies are ready to be savored.
