The Best Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

After making these healthy chocolate chip cookies, they were all I could think about, and I knew I’d have to share the recipe immediately with all of you. Because, chocolate chip cookies!!!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Cookies cookies cookies!!!

Ok, I’ll calm down now. But not really, because… cookies!!!

Seriously, I think I’ve eaten too many healthy chocolate chip cookies and am now on a sugar high. 

It’s worth it, though.

Chocolate chip cookies are always worth it.

Or rather, good chocolate chip cookies are always worth it, and I’m a strict judge of what qualifies when it comes to chocolate chip cookies.

The perfect chocolate chip cookie should be soft, chewy, and crispy, all at the same time, with just the right amount of chocolate chips. And it should never be dense, puffy, or gummy. These healthy chocolate chip cookies definitely meet the standards. They are so ridiculously delicious… and not just for a healthy cookie either!

Homemade Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made a big batch of these healthy chocolate chip cookies last night at around 10PM.

At the last minute, I decided to throw in a handful of macadamia nuts as well. If macadamia nuts weren’t so darned expensive, I’d eat them like popcorn and put them in everything.

Well, maybe not ketchup… that’d be weird.

The plan was to take the cookies to a friend’s annual Memorial Day party this afternoon, but my roommate and I ate so many that we’re going to have to make more.


Sorry. Couldn’t resist.

P.S. If you’d prefer peanut butter cookies, be sure to try my favorite Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies.

These cookies can be whole-grain, vegan, and MUCH lower in sugar, fat, and calories than traditional chocolate chip cookies, with no cholesterol and no butter or eggs in the recipe.

They can also be refined-sugar-free if you wish.

But they’re so good that I promise you’ll never be able to tell!

In fact, this might just become your new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

How to make the best healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe that yields delicious soft and chewy cookies.
4.84/5 (198)
Total Time 9 minutes
Yield 14 – 20 cookies


  • 2/3 cup plus 1/2 cup oat flour (140g)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tbsp coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp regular sugar, unrefined if desired
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips, or more if desired
  • optional 1/3 cup chopped macadamia or walnuts
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp vegetable or melted coconut oil
  • 3-5 tbsp milk of choice, as needed


  • Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe: Preheat oven to 380 degrees. Combine dry ingredients and mix very well. Add wet, and form into a big ball. Now make little balls from the big one. For soft cookies, refrigerate until cold (otherwise, just bake right away). Bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven when they’re still a little undercooked, then it’s important to let cool 10 minutes before removing from the tray, as they’ll continue to cook while cooling. They should have spread out, but every now and then they might not (climate plays a huge role in baking), so just smush down with a spoon if needed. You can also choose to make extra cookie dough balls and freeze them to bake at a later date. For softer cookies, store in a lidded plastic container. For crispier cookies, store in a lidded glass container.

    Can I freeze the cookie dough for later use if I don’t bake the whole batch. Will it hold its shape if a freeze the cookie though?

  2. Kristin says

    This was a lovely recipe! I used almond milk instead of regular milk. I also used a couple tsp of oats as my batter was a little runny. I recommend cooking for 10 and cooling for 10!

  3. Chelsea says

    They were just ok. Mine were not crispy or chewy. The tasted more like an oat bar and were soft. The flavor was good but not the right texture. They were a little gummy.

  4. Leslie says

    Absolutely heavenly cookies. I used some GF flour to top up the oat flour I had and added a dash of allspice (my new spicy addition habit). Cookies were slightly crumbly and after refrigeration were fab the next morning. Will definitely make these again. The got rave reviews from our guests!

  5. Cynthia says

    I’ve made these 4 times. Only 1x did they actually turn out correct. The rest spread out very thin. I enjoy your recipes and don’t typically have issues but this one I don’t get. I really need this recipe to turn out…Please help!!!

  6. Aisling says

    Why does it have 2 measurements for the flour but in the instructions it just says to add it all in at the same time.

    Instructions very unclear, not even listed out just one big paragraph.

    Needs to be changed or explained better.

    • CCK Media Team says

      It has two measurements for the flour because there’s not really another way to write out that measurement.

  7. Liv12 says

    Hi! These are so so tasty! 10/10!! TYSM KATIE! Also, idk but dose anybody know your last name? Let me guess, Katie Chocolate?

  8. Lilah says

    Very Delicious cookies! I doubled the recipe and used a standard cookie scoop to form the cookies and only got 20 standard size cookies. I may also reduce some of the sugar next time. I used half the chocolate and doubled the walnuts and it was still a tad too sweet for me. But perfect texture and presentation! Thank you!

  9. Nella Pignataro says

    This recipe is excellent!!!! Cookies taste awesome. I used vegetable oil instead of coconut just to have some fat in there. Next time using the coconut oil to see the difference. My husband also loved them. Makes a small batch so next time I may make two batches and freeze some

  10. Teresa Belcastro says

    I want to make the healthy choc chip cookies but the first ingredient isn’t clear. What do you mean when the recipe calls for 2/3 cup plus 1/2 cup oat flour? Pls clarify Regards Teresa B

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hi, it means 2/3 cup and then another 1/2 cup after that. There just doesn’t seem to be a better way to write that out since it’s not a comment measurement if you add them together.

  11. annonymous says

    These cookies came out paper thin and crispy. Nothing like the picture. I used 72 percent dark chocolate chunks. They tasted chalky and too sweet. Not our favorite:(. Followed recipe exactly.

    • CCK Media Team says

      What ingredients did you use? We don’t see anyone else who’s tried them having this issue on here in the comments so would love to help you troubleshoot.

  12. Sara says

    My husband and I are obsessed with these cookies! Out of the dozen times I’ve made them I’ve only really had the consistency that I like of a dense cookie & it was using whole milk. I follow all ingredients exactly using coconut oil and prepare my own Oat flour. Sometimes the batter is so sticky it’s very hard for me to form a shape and get them on the pan. Regardless of my consistencies these cookies have always tasted amazing & are a top favorite of ours.

  13. Krisha says

    I never leave reviews on recipes BUT THIS ONE DESERVED IT!! It was a gorgeous cookie- chewy, crackly and just perfect. No one could believe it’s healthy🤣 this is better than a regular chocolate chip cookie hands down.
    One thing I did- I mixed the sugars and oil+milk, first and then added the dry ingredients. Enjoy!!💕

  14. Talia S says

    Made these with all coconut sugar, and subbed pecan butter for the oil, and added chopped pecans.

    The house smells amazing!!!

  15. Cindy says

    These were delicious, but mine fell apart – had to put in a bowl and eat with a spoon.
    I’m in an RV and cooked them in a microwave convection oven so maybe thats what happened. Do you have any suggestions?

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hi! Unfortunately we have never tried them in a convection oven so are unsure about what modifications would be needed. What specific ingredients did you use?

  16. Elinor says

    These were amazing – my favourite cookie recipe to date. Can’t believe healthy recipes taste so much better than normal recipes. Highly recommend.

  17. Andrea says

    Yay! These are delicious, thank you so much for this recipe! Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies, but I don’t love adding two sticks of butter! Thank you, this will be a recipe I use often.
