Monica’s Choc Chip Cookies


These chocolate chip cookies are an old recipe of mine from when I used to be a recipe developer and food photographer, but instead of making my own chocolate chips, I used Hu Kitchen.

You want these cookies to be just golden in the oven so they will be gooey on the inside and have a little firmness on the outside.


  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips



  • Preheat oven to 175C/ 350F.
  • Combine your dry ingredients and mix well.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl or in a saucepan over the store, combine your coconut oil and syrup and heat until melted. Whisk together until combined.
  • Add the coconut oil and syrup mixture to the dry mixture, along with the vanilla extract and coconut milk. Mix well and fold in chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 12 minutes (don't overcook them!)
