Friends. Let me introduce you to the BEST single-serving, gluten-free, paleo chocolate chip cookie!!!!!!! AKA a cookie you could potentially (and probably should) make every night for the rest of your life. Whiiiiiich really appeals to me because honestly, I only really love cookies when they’re freshly baked – I just can’t get down with a cookie that’s not warm and gooey, you know?
The inspiration for this recipe came when I made my friend Sara’s recipe for a single-serving vegan chocolate chip cookie. I wanted to find a way to make it gf/paleo just for fun, but also because I get a loooot of requests for gluten-free (and dairy-free) recipes.
I have made this gluten-free, paleo version three times in this past week alone, and honestly I think it’s perfect! I think even people without dietary restrictions (whether by choice or necessity) would love this cookie! There are just 8 simple, real-food ingredients that go into this cookie, all of which are probably in your pantry right this second! It’s healthyish, but still totally decadent and satisfies the sweetest of teeth!
I hope you guys get a chance to try this cookie and LOVE it as much as I do!! Have a great weekend!
- 4 T almond flour
- 2 T coconut sugar
- pinch salt
- ⅛ t baking soda
- 1 T melted coconut oil
- 1 T beaten egg (meaning: 1 egg, beaten, and then use 1 T of that mixture - save the rest for your scrambled eggs in the morning!)
- ¼ t vanilla extract
- ~1/2 oz chocolate, chopped, or a handful of chocolate chips!
- Mix all ingredients except for the chocolate in a small bowl until well combined. Stir in the chocolate. The dough will be runny - that's okay! Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350. Shape the dough into a ball and bake on a sheet pan lined with a nonstick baking mat or parchment paper for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are light golden brown. Let rest on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. Enjoy!
