These healthy gluten free chocolate chip cookies are what you and I have been waiting for since the very day I was told I needed to go gluten free.

Best Things About Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Gluten free
  • Low-sugar
  • No oil or Butter added!
  • I get to eat more cookies! 

I made these rocking flourless double chocolate chip cookies not too long ago and oh my word YUM.

However, they definitely are not the healthiest in the world. They are what got me kicked into gear to re-create myself a healthy and gluten free chocolate chip cookie.

Let’s be honest we all need chocolate chip cookies in our life, right?

These sweet, natural ingredients complete these healthy gluten free chocolate chip cookies and really complete my soul. With such simple, natural ingredients, they are sinfully delicious, moist and so easy to pull together with just 5-ingredients. Told you it’s a winner.

Winner winner healthy chocolate chip cookies for dinner.

The night I pulled these together I ate so much dough and cookies, I actually did skip dinner. Cookie dough that has zero eggs in it is dangerous. There is nothing stopping me from demolishing every leftover dough bite. Or lets be real, spoonfuls of dough.

These gluten free cookies can most definitely be made with normal flour if desired, they are very similar to my original Skinny Chocolate Chip Cookies I made last year.

We are going to have to create a new Top 5 Healthy Cookie recipe list because these babies deserve a spot. Should I make 4 more cookie recipes to help join the newest addition of cookie heaven?

Hecks yes.

Yes, I just responded to myself.

I love excuses to make cookies. Cookies are so easy to make in terms of prep and within 15 minutes you can enjoy them with a large glass of milk. Or my favorite is with a cup of tea. Is that odd? R seems to think so.

He also thinks that dark chocolate is the nastiest thing in the world though, which I highly disagree with. I actually made a batch with 100% unsweetened bakers chocolate and he happily ate an entire batch with that chocolate by himself without one acknowledgement they had super bitter chocolate in them.

Told you dark chocolate is delicious. Wife is always right.

I need some rich dark chocolate in my life. Those antioxidants need to assist my body on repairing itself. We’ve for some reason (I’m a glutton for punishment) signed up for a half-marathon one month from now. My shoulder is holding up, however the rest of my body is screaming at me.

Speaking of my body screaming at me let me tell you about a major first for me this week. I had my first deep tissue massage for my shoulder. Pretty crazy I’m almost 26 and never had a professional massage before. I was never sold on the idea nor thought it would do much.

It was the most heavenly, yet painful experience everrrr. I might of found another addiction on top of running.

Oh my word, I didn’t know what to expect but the best way I can explain is it’s that good pain you just know you can push through. After it was over I felt amazing and can’t wait to go back. So yeah, just like running.

So between the long runs, heavenly/painful massages and cookbook editing I’m making an executive decision and deciding I truly have earned these healthy chocolate chip cookies.

My other executive decision is that you do too. <3

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat
  3. In a medium bowl add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix together.
  4. Stir in the vanilla extract, honey, peanut butter, applesauce. Stir until fully combined.
  5. Fold in the crushed dark chocolate and mini chocolate chips
  6. Mixture will be slightly sticky. Drop the dough onto baking sheet by the Tablespoon.
  7. They were not spread out during being baked so make sure you have them looking the way you want them to look. I personally like to flatten them and make them more of a circle cookie.
  8. Bake them for 8-11 minutes or until they have risen and are golden brown.

      Hi Jessica! You can try another nut butter (i.e. Almond butter) or sunflower butter if you need to avoid nut butters all together. I’ve never made it with sunbutter but I THINK the sunbutter would work better though as almond butter can dry out quite a bit when baked.

      Hope this helps! Happy Baking! 🙂

    I love a good cookie and adding Gluten Free and Skinny to the mix only makes it better. While I admit, I’ve eaten raw dough (with eggs) for decades, I’m excited to try this recipe because most eggless recipes I’ve seen call for things like chickpeas.

    Ok, i saw this video the other day. Went to make them tonight, but didn’t see this one, only the “skinny” one. Which is basically the same recipe, except this one has half the amount of applesauce. And of course, once my batter is done and in the refrigerator, I found this recipe. Of course. So now I’m worried that although I am following one of your recipes, what I’ve done won’t turn out. Do you plan to take one down or alter the other? Thanks.

      Oh no! Hope they turned out alright! The other one is a really old recipe from before I was diagnosed and that older recipe uses normal flour. Throughout the years I’ve added those subs for the people that did land on that recipe. It’s a rather forgiving recipe though so hopefully it turned out right using with that extra applesauce with the gluten-free flour!
