GF SF Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Submitted by: SCRIPSI

Introduction

I got the idea for this recipe from Elana Amsterdam's book, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook. I replaced the agave with xylitol to reduce the carb and sugar load, and reduced overall sweetness a bit. My 12yo son still says this is the best chocolate chip recipe I make, and it contains a lot more protein and fiber than "regular" chocolate chip cookies.

  • I bet if you added some almond milk or milk substitute in to wet the batter more in replacement of the missing agave you would be able to get more cookies out of the mix =0) I did the same thing and replaced the agave with stevia and some almond milk. Worked well! Enjoy! - 7/23/12

  • is there any reason not to use stevia?
    Can real butter be used instead of the grapeseed oil? - 6/7/12

  • Substituted Honey for the xylitol and olive oil for the grapeseed oil. Then did a half and half measure to the dark chocolate and butterscotch. It was delicious! - 1/17/12
