And best of all they are made with no oatmeal, they’re gluten free, and healthy. But don’t tell the kids! They only need to know that mom has made homemade chocolate chip cookies from scratch and they are chewy and delicious!

A lot of recipes will say they are “chewy” but when they cool, they remind me of a hard bricks or that’s the case I’ve experienced. This chocolate cookie easy recipe is just that – they are moist and chewy even when cooled!

And since this is a from scratch recipe chocolate chip cookie recipe, I feel more comfortable with the kids eating them. 

Since you are making your own, you can make these easy cookies without chocolate chips and they would still be delicious.

Ingredients For Chocolate Chip Cookies


Preheat oven to 350°F

In a large mixing bowl, with a blender, cream together: softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy and well mixed.

Next pour in eggs and vanilla extract continue to stir until mixed well

In a separate mixing bowl, mix together dry ingredients: chocolate chips, almond flour, Xanthum gum, cacao powder, baking soda, salt and walnuts. Mix all together well.

Now slowly add dry mixture into butter and sugar mixture, mixing well as you go. I like to use my KitchenAid Mixer. What to do if you don’t have a mixer? If you don’t own one, you can use a handheld electric mixer or stir and mix well using a spatula too.

This is the fun part. Using a simple teaspoon, spoon small dollops of the cookie dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 11 minutes. Cookies will be soft and slightly “doughy” when taken out of the oven.

Let cool on the cookie sheet for about 2 minutes and then remove and place on a cooling rack to allow to cool completely.

Homemade Chocolate Cookies FAQ’s

How do you make chewy cookies?

Moisture content is what makes a cookie chewy and less cakey. The amount of softened butter, eggs and vanilla mixed with the sugar make a high moisture mixture so these cookies will be chewy.

Why Do you Need Baking Soda In Cookies?

Baking soda as a leavener in cookies, causing them to rise slightly and be chewy. This is another ingredient that helps chocolate chip cookies made with almond flour be chewy.
