Ingredients And Substitutions

Use pure maple syrup and not pancake syrup, there is a big difference. Alternatively, you can use agave or honey, however, the flavor will be different.
Almond butter is a healthy fat that I love to use in my baked goods instead of regular butter or oil. You can use any nut or seed butter such as cashew, pecan, peanut, or sunflower seed.
Vanilla extract adds a lovely flavor to any baked good.
Almond flour is a grain free flour that adds both to the flavor and texture of these chocolate chip cookies. I always purchase a big bag from amazon!
Oat flour adds to the texture of these cookies too. You can use store bought or make your own by blending oats until they are in a fine powder.
Baking powder is going to add to the texture, allowing these cookies to have a soft pillowy texture.
Salt balances out all the flavors.
To keep these cookies vegan, use dairy free/vegan certified chocolate chips.
