Almond flour chocolate chip cookie recipe

As much as I love full-fat, high sugar desserts, I know they aren’t the best thing I can be feeding myself. So for two weeks this month, I decided to cut out all processed foods to give my gut a little break. Obviously, as someone who is borderline addicted to sugar, this was a huge challenge for me.

For the first two days, I felt amazing and told myself I would never eat sugar again (haha). I couldn’t believe how easy this was! But then I started getting majorly cranky and fantasised about cookies and chocolate 24/7… I don’t know about you, but the more I tell myself not to eat something, the more I think about it.

Healthy vegan cookies?

I didn’t want to crack quite so soon into my two-week health kick so I decided I’d bake something healthy instead. Something that would fulfil my sugar craving without putting me back to square one. I instantly remembered the healthy cookie recipe Zanna Van Dijk shared on her blog a few years back and I’m going to share this recipe with you today.

I used to make these cookies all the time when I first discovered healthy baking, waaayyy before I went vegan. They are so soft, sweet and chewy. And they will fill that cookie-shaped hole in your heart with good, wholesome ingredients.

I made some ever-so-slight changes to Zanna’s original recipe but they are just as delicious as I remember! I swear, they are the ultimate healthy comfort food. These vegan almond flour cookies are low in sugar, paleo-friendly and just all-round great for all of you health-conscious folk out there. Baking them is also super easy because you only need one bowl, so cleaning up afterwards is a breeze.

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as I do. Just try not to eat them all in one go! Be sure to check out Zanna’s blog and Youtube too because she shares lots of great vegan info and recipes.

Happy baking!
