These Chewy Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies are easy to make and you’d never guess they’re gluten-free!



4 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup almond butter
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup almond flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup + 2 Tbsp King Arther Measure for Measure Gluten-free Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup chocolate chips
sea salt for sprinkling


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, add butter and almond butter. Microwave 1 minute or until butter is melted.
  2. Stir in egg, brown sugar, almond flour and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Spoon measure for measure flour into a measuring cup and level across the top and add to the bowl along with 2 more tablespoons. Do not scoop into the container or you’ll end up with too much flour.
  4. Add baking soda and stir until combined. The dough may seem slightly dry but you should be able to mix just enough to get all the flour to mix in.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips then let the dough sit for 20 minutes.
  6. Scoop onto lined baking sheet, sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. You should be able to make 16-18 cookies.
  7. Let cool 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


For a sweeter cookie, you can increase to 3/4 cup brown sugar.

You can sub peanut butter for almond butter if desired.

If you use a different brand of GF flour, make sure it contains xanthan gum.
