Gluten-Free, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This little recipe for vegan, gluten-free melt-in-your-mouth cookies has only four ingredients! That’s it! It’s so easy. It all goes in one bowl and you just need to stir with a spoon…et voilà! In fact, it’s so quick to make that it’s one of those recipes you go to when you just realized you were supposed to bring cookies to a party that you completely forgot about and you have literally 15 minutes until you have to be out the door!


3 cups almond meal/flour

6 tablespoons safflower oil

6 tablespoons organic agave nectar (or replace with honey or maple syrup)

3/4 cup good quality bittersweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350º F. Measure all four ingredients into a bowl and mix them together with a spoon. To form the cookies, use a small ice-cream scooper (the kind you use to make melon balls) so that they are all uniform or simply use a spoon. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or a silicone liner, and bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes (9 minutes was the magic number for my convection oven). Let cool for a few minutes before removing the cookies from the pan. Enjoy!
