Ingredients
For the Chocolate Chip Cookies:
  • 2½ cups of almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon of sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • ½ cup of cold butter
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons of vanilla
  • ⅓ to ½ cup of honey
  • ¾ cup of dark chocolate (you can also use chips and then chop them up into small pieces)
For the Snickerdoodles: Use same ingredients as above, but omit the chocolate. Add in:
  • ½ teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons of cinnamon.
Instructions
  1. Combine the flour, salt, and soda and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the butter, vanilla, and honey together.
  2. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Then stir in the chocolate.
  3. Scoop into small balls onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 8-11 minutes (or until golden color). Make sure to press cookies flat before cooking as they won’t “melt” flat.
  4. Let the cookies cool a bit on the stoneware before removing them.

  1. They look delicious. I would definitely opt for the dark chocolate option though.

    It’d be interesting to try a chocolate mint version, too, by adding cocoa and some mint extract.

  3. Shondra says:

    Hey Peggy that is a great idea! Did you ever try it out?

  4. Okay, as a lover of “real” chocolate chip cookies, I’m skeptical. No eggs? How does almond flour do in cookies? (It seems to work well for quick breads). I’d love a review of the taste & texture on these!

      Almond flour holds up well.. usually though you have to press down the cookies as they don’t “melt” this is true with or without eggs. I am actually trying to steer away from almond flour and use coconut flour instead. It is tough to get the same taste and texture as a “real” CC cookie as usually these cookies stay moist and chewy, but still good. I bet if you made these though and gave them to someone unsuspecting, they probably wouldn’t know the difference as there are many types of CC cookies. 🙂 Stay tuned as next week I will put up a cookie recipe I made up this week which includes coconut flour and eggs, but no sugar or honey, a shortbread of sorts.

  5. Kiddo’s in bed…house is quiet…eating these chocolate chip cookies. Heaven. Thank you.

    Made these cookies tonight and they are great! Mine had to cook a little longer in the oven and you really have to wait for them to cool down. We love them! Nice treat while on primal….

    If you’ve spent any time listening to/following Mat Lalonde’s arguments for the use of dextrose (pure glucose) as an occasional sweetener in lieu of honey or certain fruits that contain higher levels of fructose, then you can try these with 1/2 cup of dextrose in place of the honey. They will be slightly less sweet than the honey version, but turned out great.

  8. Trisha says:

    I just made these cookies and I am speechless! They were delicious!
