#LEAN14: vegan & gluten free cookie dough for one.

I’m a sucker for single serving recipes.

…especially when they include two of the best words in the English language: COOKIE. DOUGH.

Needless to say, when I saw this healthier single serving recipe for vegan cookie dough on Pinterest, I knew it was one I had to try.

I made some changes to that recipe because a) I didn’t have coconut oil and b) I wanted to see how it would taste with almond flour. The result was not only delicious, but also gluten free.

Vegan & Gluten Free Cookie Dough For One

adapted from Vegan Cookie Dough For One


  • 1 tablespoon real maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons dark chocolate chips (make sure non-dairy if strictly vegan)

Just mix the first four ingredients in a small bowl, then add the chocolate chips last. That’s it!

I was planning on using some almond milk to replace the coconut oil, but it actually didn’t need it. The almond flour soaked the maple syrup up for a perfect cookie dough consistency.

I would like to try the original recipe too, which uses regular flour, but I must say I really did love the flavor and heartiness from the almond flour. The only thing I’d say I didn’t like about this recipe is that…it didn’t make enough! Seriously, I might double it next time 😉

Are you a fan of single serving recipes? Do you have a favorite? (I’d love suggestions!)

      nope, not strictly (nor vegan…or any specific food “label,” for that matter). But when I can make substitutes that are gluten free without substituting taste, I’ll usually do that because I notice it helps me digest better 🙂

    Is there anyone out there that doesn’t love cookie dough?
    If so, they’re not human.

    I’m really intrigued by using almond flour for this recipe. I’ll definitely give it a try! I usually make mine with honey instead of maple syrup (that’s usually what I have on hand) and it’s delicious that way too!
