Healthy Choc Chip Cookie Recipe

Kids will never be willing to give up their treats (and neither will their mums!) The key is to change a classic recipe in order to make them healthier for our families. These choc chip cookies are gluten-free and refined-sugar free making them perfect for a lunch box snack. The best part? Your kids won’t be able to tell the difference. The recipe is from Health Blogger, Nutritionist and Wellness Coach Jessica Sepel, in her new cookbook The Healthy Life.


Makes: 12


1 1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2-3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
1 egg
1/3 cup chopped dark chocolate/cacao nibs


1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees.

2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir the almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt until combined.

3. In another mixing bowl, whisk the coconut oil, maple syrup, almond butter and vanilla extract until well combined.

4. Add egg to the wet mixture and whisk for a further 2-3 minutes, until light and bubbly.

5. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, until just combined. Stir in chopped chocolate.

6. Roll tablespoon-sized amounts of dough into balls then flatten slightly on a lined baking tray.

7. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden around the edges.

8. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
