Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-Free, Oil-Free, Vegan Option)

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies Gluten-Free Eli Brecher

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies Gluten-Free Eli BrecherThese are officially the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made, and the best you will ever make too! Perfectly chewy with crisp edges and filled with dark choc chips that will make your mouth water with each bite.

I can’t believe these cookies are made with only 10 simple ingredients and contain no gluten, dairy, oil or refined sugar, plus there’s just one little swap below to make them vegan by replacing the egg with ground flaxseed (it really works!)

These chewy choc chip cookies are made with straightforward, healthy ingredients – although as far as I’m concerned, the more chocolate chips the merrier 😊
