 that actually taste like chocolate chip cookies

wheat free chocolate chip cookies


I’ve tried MANY wheat free chocolate chip cookies.

Some good, some not so good.

Some recipes that were fairly easy to follow, and some that contained way too many strange sounding ingredients.

They all had one thing in common; NONE of them tasted like a true chocolate chip cookie. Just because there are chocolate chips in there does not a chocolate chip cookie make.

My family does not need to eat wheat or gluten free, but I was really hoping to make a cookie that tasted like the real deal chocolate chip cookie, only with slightly healthier ingredients.

One taste of the cookie dough, and I knew they were going to be good, but the true test would be passing them by the kids. Charlie and Stella can usually pick out a “healthified”  recipe by sight alone.

When I saw Charlie sneaking a cookie out of the microwave (my favorite hiding spot), I knew I had a winner.


wheat free chocolate chip cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter VERY soft
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


  • combine the flours, baking soda, and salt
  • cream together the butter and sugars, add the egg and vanilla
  • stir in the flour, and finally the chocolate chips
  • chill dough for at least 2 hours, but it is best left overnight
  • pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees
  • scoop cookie dough into 2 tbsp size balls, and place on a parchment or silpat lined baking sheets
  • bake for 10 - 12 minutes, (bake 8 - 9 minutes if making smaller sized cookies)
  • allow to cool on baking sheet for 2 - 3 minutes, before moving to rack to complete cooling

The cookie dough needs to chill at least two hours or they will be spread a lot. No one likes flat cookies.  I let mine chill overnight, and brought the dough out of the fridge while the oven pre-heated. The cookies can be made  gluten free if you use gluten free oat flour such as Bobs Red Mill

If you are looking for a wheat free chocolate chip cookie that tastes like the original, this is the one.
