Healthy Double Chocolate Cookies Ingredients:
Coconut oil: Use room temperature coconut oil that is still solid but not too hard. If it’s too hard to beat, soften just slightly.
Eggs: I haven’t tried using an egg replacement in this recipe so, let me know how it goes if you want try it!
Organic cane sugar: Of course non-organic cane sugar will also work in this recipe, but I prefer to buy this ingredient organic.
Coconut sugar: This unrefined sugar has a rich maple flavor to it that I absolutely love! You can substitute brown sugar if you prefer.
Vanilla extract: A little bit of this ingredient adds so much flavor and depth to these cookies.
Cocoa powder or cacao powder: Cacao powder has a little bit more earthy bitterness than cocoa powder does. If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate then, I would recommend you use cocoa powder in this recipe.
Almond flour: Make sure to use blanched almond flour in this recipe and not almond meal as they have a different texture.
Coconut flour: This flour absorbs a lot more moisture than other flour options. Make sure to measure carefully and correctly (measure loosely by spooning in your flour and then level with a knife).
Baking soda: This is the rising agent used in these chocolate cookies.
Sea salt: I like to add a bit of salt in my baked goods but feel free to leave it out if you want.
Chocolate chips: I used semi sweet chocolate chips in these cookies but you can use whatever kind you enjoy! You can also add two different types of chocolate chips to make triple chocolate cookies! Make sure to use dairy free if you want these cookies to be dairy free.
Double Chocolate Cookies Recipe Tips:
- Using an electric hand mixer or a standing electric mixer works best for beating the wet ingredients. You’ll want them well combined and a little bit fluffy. Whisking by hand may not get you the right result. This is the one I use and it’s very inexpensive.
- Combine your dry ingredients in a separate bowl before adding them to the wet ingredients. Sometimes almond flour can have clumps and you want to break those all up.
- When mixing cookie dough, it is important that you don’t overmix. This is why I recommend stirring the wet and dry ingredients together until ALMOST fully combined. Then, you’ll add in your chocolate chips and finish mixing while being mindful to not overmix.
- I know it’s annoying having to chill your cookie dough before baking! But especially when baking gluten free, it can be necessary in order to create a tall, chewy cookie. For this recipe, you absolutely need to chill the dough in the fridge for 3-4 hours at least so, I like to make the dough the night before I want to bake the cookies.
- I love using unbleached parchment paper to help with an easy clean up. If you don’t have parchment paper then, you can just grease your pan instead but you may need to bake your cookies for a little less time so check them.
Double Chocolate Cookies Recipe (Gluten Free & Dairy Free)
Keyword: Double Chocolate Cookies
Author: Adrianne from Bananasaboutlife.com
Yield: 12 cookies
- 1/3 cup coconut oil (solid at room temperature)
- 2 eggs (I have not tried flax eggs)
- 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder or cacao powder
- 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons almond flour (not almond meal)
- 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 teaspoons tapioca starch
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips + more for on top
- Start by adding coconut oil, eggs, cane sugar and coconut sugar to a mixing bowl. Use an electric hand mixer to beat these ingredients until well combined and a little bit fluffy. Now, add vanilla extract and beat again to incorporate.
- In a separate bowl, stir cocoa powder, almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt until combined and to break up any clumps. Add dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients and gently stir until almost fully combined. Add in your chocolate chips and stir to finish mixing.
- Place your cookie dough in fridge and let it set for at least 3-4 hours. This step is very important as the flours will have time to absorb the moisture in the dough. Of course, you can make the dough the day before and let it rest overnight before baking.
- When you’re ready to bake your cookies, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Form 12 balls with your dough and place on your baking sheets with some room in between for your cookies to grow. Place some chocolate chips on top of each dough ball if you want and flatten each ball with the palm of your hand.
- Bake each sheet separately for 10 minutes and enjoy!
