chocolate vanilla cookies! (GAPS legal)


I recently hosted a fermented veggie swap and these cookies I served at the party were a hit! Everyone one was asking for the recipe. I don’t usually use recipes, I just use my instinct, so I had to recreate the recipe and it turned out the same, so I guess remembered how to make them.

I will do a little recipe at the bottom on how I make GAPS chocolate drops. I cannot get a hold of cocoa butter right now so I used coconut oil. I found out that they melt VERY easily though, almost too easily. But they melt right into the vanilla cookie making it a chocolate vanilla cookie! Ok here it goes…

GAPS chocolate vanilla cookies



1 1/4 cup almond flour

2 T coconut flour

1/2 cup  honey or maple syrup

1/8 t Celtic Sea Salt®

1/2 Tbsp vanilla or 1 vanilla bean

Dash cinnamon

1 pastured egg + 1 egg white (2 Tbsp ground flax + 6 Tbsp of water –> use this recipe)

GAPS chocolate chips




1. Mix the almond flour, coconut flour, salt, cinnamon in a mixing bowl.

2. In another bowl mix eggs, vanilla, and honey.

3. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry bowl.

4. Stir until mixed and let sit for a few minutes to let the coconut flour soak up completely.

5. Carefully and quickly mix in the GAPS chocolate drops, so they don’t melt and make the batter totally chocolate!

6. Bake at 350 for about 10-15 minutes (I made small ones so the time will vary. I never like to go by time, instead I go by when the cookie looks a tad golden brown around the edges)

7. Let cool and them remove from cookie sheet. Eat and refrigerate leftovers 🙂

    Your cookies look absolutely delicious! I love the chocolate / vanilla combo, and all the wonderful wholesome ingredients you have used.

  3. Mmm, these look amazingly delicious! These are going on my Pinterest board for later. Thanks for sharing at Tiny Tip Tuesday!

  4. Now these are some tasty cookies jam packed with protein! Thank you for sharing this yummy treat on Allergy-Free Wednesdays.

  5. All your recipes look delicious!! I’m going to try them with nothing but coconut flour. We don’t do well with nuts because of oxalate issues. Hope they come out as well as yours!! 🙂

    • Sorry- I will do ONLY coconut flour things. a lot of people can’t have nuts I am realizing, so I will use coconut flour more often in my recipes. Beware that coconut flour uses a lot more eggs and you need only a little bit to go along way!

    Thanks for the recipe Caroline! My 4yo loved them so will be excited when I get around to making them 🙂 Did the ones we tried have stevia in them? I only have a bit of the green powder stevia from the coop bulk section.

    • You did they the ones with stevia at my house! If you put honey and stevia, the stevia is covered up! The green stuff seems to be bitter, I would get sweet leaf brand if possible

    Looks good, but what is the amount of honey/maple syrup to add:1/2 ?

  8. No butter or coconut oil?

  9. What does T mean?

  10. Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then
    most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest price?

    Thanks, I appreciate it!
