These Healthy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are a tasty treat made with wholesome ingredients. They are perfectly soft & chewy, full of chocolatey goodness, super easy to make, and are actually good for you!  Dairy, refined sugar, gluten, and grain free.


  • 1/2 cup almond butter 
  • 1 tbsp applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips


  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine the almond butter, applesauce, egg, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and coconut sugar until smooth.
  3. Then add in the almond flour, cocoa powder, and salt and combine.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes to chill & set.
  6. Roll the dough into about tablespoon sized balls. The mixture will be very sticky so I recommend wetting your hands to help with this step. If you are having difficulty rolling into balls, you can simply form the dough into cookie shapes as best as you can.
  7. Place the balls on a greased or lined baking tray and flatten with your fingers. I also recommend wetting your fingers for this step.
  8. Top with more chocolate chips (optional, but highly recommended!) and a sprinkle of salt.
  9. Bake for 12 minutes.
  10. Let cool & enjoy!
