Grain-free Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I find these grain-free walnut chocolate chip cookies a treat even without any refined flours or sweeteners making them metabolic-friendly. My recipe is light on sweeteners so adjust recipe for your taste. I find the chocolate chips add just the right sweetness to every bite. In addition, I prefer ghee rather than butter as it doesn’t contain lactose or casein yet adds a rich buttery taste. Adjust the recipe to your personal tastes.

Wet Ingredients:

  • 6 Tbsp ghee (softened)
  • ¼ cup creamy almond butter
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup allulose (or sugar/sugar-sub)
  • 1 egg or flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flaxseeds with 2 ½ Tbsp water)
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cup almond flour
  • ¾ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp sea salt


  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
  • ~½ cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or whatever you choose)*


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Combine “wet ingredients” (plus allulose) in a bowl
  3. Add “dry ingredients” and combine
  4. Finally add your nuts and chips
  5. Roll balls of approximately 1 ½ Tbsp batter and place on parchment lined baking sheet
  6. Bake about 10 minutes or until starting to brown on top
  7. Let cool on pan for 2-5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
  8. Let cool fully and enjoy!

*depending on which chocolate chips you use, you may be adding refined sugars to your cookies.

Enjoy these grain-free walnut chocolate chip cookies and let me know how you make them your own! See the original recipe from London which I simplified, healthified (even more), and made them my own. I chose Allulose as the base sweetener as it’s the latest/greatest in low glycemic natural sweeteners that don’t have the aftertaste of stevia or Monkfruit. Try it!
