Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies by Marta | Easy Gluten-Free Recipes for Kids

Thank you Marta!! This is an incredibly Simple recipe for our Simple Cooking Cooking Show and its also gluten-free. (Full video at bottom of this post) The cookie is really delicious. Kids and picky eaters would love this cookie- no problem there.

What I love most is that this recipe can be a base for any flavor you want. I thought that maybe replacing the coconut oil with peanut or almond butter would be nice for a chocolate-peanut butter version. Or, add some cinnamon, orange zest, and raisins for another variation. The real key here is the almond flour. Marta said you could also use a mix of coconut flour with almond flour, too.

However you do it, you can feel a bit better knowing these cookies are free from processed flours and sugars. Its not too sweet and has a bit more protein than a regular cookie. So, it keeps you full a bit longer than a regular chocolate chip cookie and manages your blood sugar levels a little better.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies by @martascooking

Ingredients (Makes 11 small cookies): 

  • 100g // 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 28g // 2 Tbsp. coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 5g // 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 25g // 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 egg (room temp)
  • 30g // 2 Tbsp. chocolate chips


I made another version that was delicious! It was Orange-Cardamom. I didn’t add chocolate chips. Instead I added ⅛ tsp. ground cardamom and ¼ large orange, zested or ¼ tsp. zest. Really nice!


Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Then, mix in the oil and the egg. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop out into 11 balls. Roll into balls. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and flatten each ball slightly with your hand. Bake at 350 F (180 C) for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom.

To your wholesome & healthy life,
