I have tried several grain-free vegan cookie recipes, but none of them seemed to deliver.
Something just didn’t seem right.
And as much as I enjoy a good vegan treat, I had to continue my search for the perfect grain-free cookie recipe.
My son had been asking me all morning to make chocolate chip cookies.
I already have another Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe posted, but it contains oat flour and has a different ingredient list.
Since I’ve been trying very hard to avoid grains, I wanted to find another grain-free version.
So I went online and looked at several different recipes and they either didn’t look right or didn’t look appetizing.
Until I found this one. And after making them…I knew I had found a keeper.
I can’t remember the last time I was so pleased with the outcome of a new recipe I’ve tried.
They stayed together and didn’t crumble or fall apart like others I’ve made, were soft and had a nice buttery flavor to them.
Where to Buy: If you have trouble finding any of the ingredients to make this recipe, you can order online from Amazon and have them delivered straight to your door and…you’ll be supporting The Healthy Family and Home website at the same time!
Tip #1: The ORGANIC almond flour was out of stock at Amazon at the time of the post. I listed the Bob’s Mill Brand for now but will come back and update the post when the ORGANIC brand is back in stock. I did find some organic almond flour at Nuts.com for $13.99 / lb.
Tip #2: Make sure the baking soda you use is NON-ALUMINUM. There is a non-aluminum brand from Bob’s Mill listed below if you cannot find any in your local store.
Tip #3: Sweetener – you can use raw organic agave nectar for vegan or raw organic honey for non-vegan.
Tip #4: You can use either vegan butter/organic grass-fed butter/organic coconut oil for this recipe. I’ve made them both ways and the ones with the butter seemed to taste better.
Tip #5: Vegan Chocolate Chips – I have done a quite a bit of research on vegan chocolate chips and have decided that the Enjoy Life brand are the ones I will use going forward. They are not organic, but I emailed the company to verify if they were made with GMO ingredients and here is an excerpt from the email:
“Yes, our Mini-Chips and Mega Chunks are GMO-free! Actually, all 28 of our products are Gluten-Free, Free of the Top 8 Food Allergens; so we never use any wheat, dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish or shellfish in any of our products, and all 28 were recently verified non-GMO-Free! We are currently in the process of updating our packaging and website to reflect this acheivement”.
This is really exciting news! So make sure when you are using vegan chocolate chips to use the Enjoy Life brand to avoid GMO’s.
