The answer to ALL your sweet, sweet prayers – guilt-free chocolate chip cookies!

image (13)Chocolate chip cookies

What can I say about these cookies? They are absolute heaven – that’s what. Chocolate chip cookies are a necessity in my life. I’ve just come to accept it. So, I figured, why not at least try to make a version that I can feel good about?

Angela from Oh She Glows (the creator of this recipe) said it best:

“Ram packed with healthy ingredients, chewy, crispy around the edges, thick and hearty, with dark chocolate sprinkled throughout.”

Angela has somehow managed to combine all natural & delicious ingredients in such a way that leaves you not missing the typical, sugar and fat-laden version of the cookie.

And even better than that? This is yet another recipe that can be made with all sorts of odds-and-end-type ingredients you already havimage (12)e in your pantry.


  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats, blended into oat flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal or almond flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup Sucanat or coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 3 tablespoons mini dark chocolate chips (or finely chopped chocolate)
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao nibs
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax + 2 tablespoons water, mixed together
  • 1/4 cup “drippy” raw almond butter (or other all-natural nut butter)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
