The BEST Healthy Cookies: Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Make these healthy chewy chocolate chip cookies in one bowl with coconut sugar, coconut oil, nut milk and dairy-free chocolate chips! Plus, we've rounded up some of our favorite healthy cookie recipes!



  • Preheat oven to 375° Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, salt and maple sugar.
  • Using a fork, cut the solid coconut oil (or ghee) into the the mixture until crumbly. Stir in the non-dairy milk and vanilla until a dough forms.
  • Fold in chocolate chips. I just use my hands to mix them in because it's a pretty thick dough.
  • Roll dough into 12 balls, about the size of an oversized golf ball, and place on lined baking sheet.
  • Transfer to oven and bake for about 12-14 minutes. The edges will start to turn golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet. Store in an airtight container on the counter.
