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!!!

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.
4.83/5 (186)
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!
