  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup granulated organic cane sugar
  • 1 cup organic brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour (or your favorite nut flour - we use macadamia nut flour since it’s available locally, but other nut flours will work fine)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour**
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).

  2. Thoroughly cream coconut oil and sugars together. (We use our KitchenAid stand mixer for this, but a wooden spoon works, too!) Add eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients.

  3. Drop large spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until they begin to brown. Transfer to cooling rack.

Recipe Notes

*I prefer to use organic sugar or at the very least *cane sugar. Sugar that is not labeled as organic or made from cane is very likely made with GMO sugar beets.

**To make oat flour, simply grind gluten-free oats in your blender until they’re a fine powder.
