Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best healthy dessert recipe! Made with cashew butter, almond flour, and coconut sugar … these homemade cookies are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. They’re made in one bowl with no mixer, loaded with melty chocolate, and have a soft, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth texture!




  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the cashew butter, coconut sugar, egg, applesauce, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. Next add in the dry ingredients – almond flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine until smooth.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove the dough from the fridge and scoop about tablespoon sized balls onto a greased or parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Flatten with your finger tips into a cookie shape.  (You should be able to make 10 cookies.)
  7. Add more chocolate chips on top and a sprinkle of salt.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes.
  9. Let cool and enjoy!
