Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Total: 25 minutes
Servings: 12 cookies
The best gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free chocolate chip cookies (with added collagen for protein).


  • 1 pasture-raised egg, (sub flax egg)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup , (sub honey)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup cashew butter, (sub any nut/seed butter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 tsp flaky salt, (I used Maldon)
  • 1/4 cup collagen peptides, (optional, sub 1/4 cup additional almond flour)


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the egg. (If subbing with flax egg, mix 1 tbsp ground flaxseeds with 3 tbsp water and let sit for 5 minutes.)
  • Pour in the maple syrup, melted coconut oil, cashew butter, vanilla and almond milk. Whisk to combine.
  • Stir in almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon, collagen (if using) and some of the sea salt.
  • Fold in chocolate chunks, leaving several chocolate chunks aside.
  • Place parchment paper over a baking sheet and use a spoon and spatula to drop batter, dividing it into a dozen cookies. Place the last several pieces of chocolate over the top and finish with a sprinkle of sea salt.
  • Bake for ~12 minutes on the center rack. Turn the oven to broil and cook for an additional 1-1.5 minutes (be sure to keep an eye on them, they can burn quickly!) until golden brown.
  • Enjoy!
