A bold statement, sure, but we are positive you will agree.😁
Are Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Actually Healthy?
The word “gluten-free” has been tossed around a lot lately, but what does it mean to actually be gluten-free?
To put it simply, gluten is a mixture of two types of protein that can be found in foods like bread, pasta, and flour, and is responsible for holding foods together—giving them their shape, texture, and elasticity. However, some people, like those with celiac disease, are unable to have gluten because it can lead to damaging side effects to their immune system and small intestines.
Because the side effects of gluten among this population was so severe, the FDA created a “gluten-free” regulation that made it easier for people with celiac disease easily identify which foods contain gluten and which ones don’t. And thus, the gluten-free movement began.
You don’t need to have celiac disease to eat gluten-free. In fact, gluten can cause side effects in people who have gluten sensitivity—like depression, “foggy brain”, constipation, headaches, bloating, etc. Others choosing to go gluten-free may do it simply for the health benefits and because it makes them feel better overall. This is precisely why we made this gluten-free cookie recipe!
The best part? You won’t have that guilty feeling after eating it…you know, that “I’m so full I can’t get off the couch” feeling…?

Chewy Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil (you may also use melted butter or ghee)
- ¼ cup of maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅔ cup chocolate chips
- ¼ cup SkinnyFit Super Youth
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mix together melted coconut oil, pure maple syrup, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth.
- Next stir in almond flour, baking soda, salt and SkinnyFit Super Youth until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
- Drop dough onto prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Use your hands to flatten the dough so that it’s about ¼ inch thick.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookies just begin to turn golden brown on the edges. (They may look underdone, but that’s just because they’re made with almond flour.)
- Allow cookies to cool for 5-10 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
