Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Paleo+Vegan!)


In case you can’t tell, I have an extreme love of chocolate chip cookies. They’ve gotta be crispy and crunchy on the outside, and warm and gooey on the inside🤤 These are alllll that and more, because they’re also free of eggs, dairy, gluten, grains, AND refined sugar.



I love eggs, so most of my recipes contain eggs. However, so many of my friends are vegan, so I thought it’d be fun to create a classic treat that was vegan-friendly. Our egg substitute here is flax meal! Though it sounds like a weird ingredient to put in cookies, I promise you it’s not. By mixing flax meal with boiling water and letting it sit, it creates an amazingly egg-like consistency–perfect for vegans and anyone allergic to eggs!


My whole family went gaga over these. I made two batches in 24 hours, and they were snatched up soooo quickly! I think it’s because these cookies taste just like classic home-baked, unhealthy chocolate chip cookies. If you don’t tell your guests that they’re actually healthy, they’ll never know!
