  • 1 ½ cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon gelatin
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temperature), divided
  • ½ cup Brown Swerve
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg (room temperature)
  • 1/8 cup unsweetened coconut milk or unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ - 1 cup dark chocolate or bittersweet chips
  • Sea salt for sprinkling - optional 


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Mix almond flour, gelatin, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat four tablespoons of butter in a sauce pan over low heat until melted. Pour into stand mixer bowl or a large bowl.  Add remaining two tablespoons of room temperature butter to the melted butter.
  3. On medium speed, beat butter, Brown Swerve, and vanilla until creamy. Add egg and beat until combined. Gradually beat in flour mixture until combined. Stir milk into cookie dough until evenly mixed. Fold in chocolate chips. 
  4. Using a tablespoon to measure, scoop dough onto cookie sheet. Sprinkle each cookie with a dash of sea salt. Bake for 11-13 minutes – and it’s okay if the cookie looks uncooked in the middle.
  5. Remove from oven, and don’t touch them – let them cool completely on the cookie sheet and the cookie will remain soft and gooey inside yet crunchy on the outside. 

Makes 24 servings.

    Can you substitute almond or coconut flour? Same proportions?

    • Swerve

      Hi Anne, Unfortunately you cannot easily substitute the two. We'd recommend your check out our gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe!

  • Natalie

    Can you substitute the butter for (nonfat/fat) Greek yogurt or applesauce?

    • Swerve

      Hi Natalie, we wouldn't suggest substituting the full amount, but you could try subbing 1/4 - 1/2 cup of applesauce or greek yogurt for the butter. You might get a different texture, but they should still be delicious!

    Can you use the Swerve cake mix instead of flour?

    • Swerve

      Hi Liz! We would not recommend using the cake mix since it has additional ingredients. Check out our recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies using almond flour here:

    Either the recipe is a little screwy or these are supposed to be salty. It says to add kosher salt to the cookies then sprinkle with sea salt. So I added the 2 teaspoons of kosher salt but omitted the sprinkling of sea salt because I though 2 teaspoons was already a lot. The cookies are salty. They taste ok but salty. Should it have been half a teaspoon of kosher salt instead of 2?
