Vegan, sugar free, grain free chocolate chip cookies

This is so exiting! For a long time I’ve been wanting to join a food blogger group/ society and now I finally have. Let me introduce you to The Secret Recipe Club (SRC). I came across this lovely group through 84th and 3rd , and I was in love instantly. The idea is that you each month get assigned another blog which you should make a recipe from – without telling the blogger. Such a wonderful idea!

This month I got the amazing blog Chit Chat Chomp, and I am so happy I did. Leigh, the wonderful blogger behind, creates the most amazing recipes and takes incredibly cute photos. AND she is a lover of French food (yes please!) and tea. There are so many things I love about Leigh’s lovely blog. Here are just three of them:

– She used to have all these great abbreviations in her recipe index (she just changed it and the new system is even more brilliant, but still…). I thought the idea was so brilliant I have added them to my recipe index too (:

– Her “My pantry staples” page is just brilliant!

– She makes everything refined sugar free and has an entire refined sugar free- and fructose free section in her recipe index. Great!

I’ve had such a great time looking around on Chit Chat Chomp and it was so hard to choose a recipe. Eventually I settled for these amazing vegan, gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free almond chocolate chip cookies. Because one can never have too many cookie recipes right?

They are so delicious! Brilliant recipe Leigh!

Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

Super delicious healthy, grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free, vegan chocolate chip cookies - that don't taste healthy.


  • 1 1/2 cups (225 g.) almond meal (or finely ground almonds)
  • 2 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs (I used sugar free chocolate chips instead)
  • 2 tbsp. rice malt syrup (or raw honey or maple syrup)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract or beans from 1/2 pod of vanilla
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 170°C / 340°F
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Place tbsp. sized dollops of dough on a baking sheet with baking paper. Press them down a little and bake for 10-13 minutes until golden brown.
  4. Let cool completely - they are too fragile to pick up while warm.

    Oh Josefine – your blog and your photos are just devine. Such a beautiful space to wander around in. Thank you very much for your lovely comments about my little blog.

    Welcome to SRC. It’s a lot of fun.

    These cookies look amazing. Healthy that doesn’t taste healthy – can’t beat that.

  5. The universe brought me to this post today, Josefine! I’m tinkering with almond flour cookie recipes as well and this looks so lovely!! This will definitely inspire me in my experimentation :) Those vanilla beans must taste so lovely… what a great combo!! Beautiful.

  6. Josefine, So glad that you’ve joined us in the Secret Recipe Club. These cookies look delicious and have a remarkable resemblance to a cookie that I used to buy in college at a local co-op and have never been able to replicate. Maybe you’ve given me the secret. In any event, I’m sure these are delicious.

  7. Oh wow – everything free! These will be a godsend to many people.
