I was in the mood for chocolate chip cookies tonight, so I thought I would borrow my chocolate chip, ginger cookie recipe and change it up a bit. I only had one egg and was low on sugar so I took a chance on it working out with just one egg. What happened was, it made a crunchier cookie! We couldn’t wait till they where cold so we ate them warm and they were really yummy!!

Nice light crunch on the outside and soft in the middle.


1/2 cup Almond Butter
3 tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tbsp Coconut Oil
1 med org Egg
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
Pecan halves, for garnish


In a bowl, add Almond Butter, Coconut oil, Egg, Maple Syrop, Vanilla, and mix well. Fold in Flour, Baking Soda and Salt. It will become a thick Paste. Add Chocolate chips and stir till blended evenly.

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease cookie sheets with Coconut oil.

Using a tbsp measure, scoop dough and scrape off excess. Remove with a small spatula or knife, and roll into a ball. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat, leaving a couple inches between. With a fork, dip it in water and flatten out, (this will keep it from sticking to the fork). Decorate with pecans on top.

Bake at 350F for 14 – 15 min

Let cool on sheet and remove with a spatula.

Makes up to 24 depending on size.


About Angie's Food Adventures

I thought I could cook in my early twenties, then I found out that Mac and Cheese and Ham Steaks wasn't really cooking. Then I met some vegetarians and tried that for a while. Learned a lot. In my thirties I started craving my Italian roots so I started really paying attention to family recipes. By the time I was 40 I had gained about 20 lbs and had my first gallbladder attack. Note to self: simple carbs are not for me! That's when my journey into healthy eating began. Since then, I've read and researched and read....I've tried a lot of diets and lifestyles and I can honestly say, I've finally established my own way of cooking and preparing food that agrees with me, still keeping to my roots and beyond!

  1. I like the sound of using pecans in chocolate chip cookies…Great idea! And your recipe sounds divine with the coconut oil and maple syrup flavors:)

    • Thank you Peri! I have to say, being a novice baker, this combination of ingredients really worked, to give a gluten free cookie, a true chocolate chip cookie taste! I was very surprised and impressed not to mention the happy face on my husband! Lol!

      Amazing what you can achieve when you’re desperate for chocolate! Lol 🙂

      p.s. love the peppers! Similar to what I grew up on! 🙂
