Gluten-Free Chocolate Wafer Cookies

gluten-free chocolate wafer cookies

I was about to name these cookies ‘Chocolate Brownie Cookies’ because they taste so chocolaty and rich! But then I didn’t want you to assume that this was and unhealthy cookie recipe because in no way does that name suggest the following:

  • Healthy
  • Dairy-free
  • Vegan
  • Gluten-free
  • Grain-free
  • Sugar free

Say whaaaaat??

Yes, I’m not kidding…these cookies tick all those boxes!

Full of healthy fats, protein and nutrients – these cookies will definitely not leave you feeling guilty and the chocolaty richness of them will surely satisfy any sweet cravings you have!

Gluten-Free Chocolate Wafer Cookies

Makes: 20-25 cookies

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour (ground almonds)
  • 2 tbsp gluten-free oat flour
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp xylitol (or stevia, brown sugar, coconut sugar…etc)

Wet ingredients:

  • ¼ cup apple sauce
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp vanilla paste (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
  • 10 drops stevia
  • 2 tbsp almond milk


  • Preheat oven to 180*C (350*F)
  • In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients
  • Melt the coconut oil , then to that add the rest of the wet ingredients
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • Shape the cookies into small balls, place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using your hands, press down the cookies to make them into flat discs.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Take out and leave to cool completely before moving them. They will be very soft and fragile when still warm!

The cookies turn out very soft, but if you would like them to be a little firmer you can bake for a little longer (about 15 minutes) but I preferred them soft.

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe. Read it last night and tried it just now. I don’t have apple sauce handy at home, so i doubled coconut oil. also use only coconut sugar and no stevia. I used granola flour because it’s what is available:)
    I LOOOVEE the crumbliness of the cookies and although i was worried because I’m using mini oven, they turn out yuummyy…
    Can’t (won’t) stop licking my fingers after mixing the dough.
    Thanks a lot and keep posting please…

    1. Hi Tika 😀 Thank you so much for your comment. I’m so glad you liked the recipe, even though you made a lot of substitutions haha 😀 but to be honest I do that all the time! The coconut oil and apple sauce do the same thing I simply used apple sauce to lower the calorie content.
