  • 6 tablespoons extra light olive oil
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sweetened applesauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 2 1/4 cups gluten-free flour (I used Bob's Red Mill gluten-free 1:1 baking flour)
    (OR 2 1/4 cups regular all-purpose flour)
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with Crisco.
  • In a large glass bowl, add all of the ingredients except for the flour and the chocolate chips. Mix until combined.
  • Add the flour to the mixture in two batches, mixing after each addition.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Place by rounded tablespoon onto an ungreased baking sheet. Using a
    small spoon and your fingers, flatten the cookies a little bit before
    putting in the oven. Mine were about 1/2" thick.
  • Bake at 375F for 7-9 minutes (I baked mine for 8 minutes). Remove from
    the oven and allow the cookies to cool down on the baking sheet for 3
    minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.


Flour weights: 4.8 oz/cup (gluten-free 1:1 all purpose), 4.25 oz/cup (regular all-purpose flour)
To freeze: Place in a labeled ziplock bag and store in the freezer for up to two months.
