They are for people that both have celiac disease, or just a gluten intolerance, and choose to follow a plant-based diet, either by conviction or necessity.
As a result, these recipe exclude all the food containing the following ingredients:
Wheat and its derivatives: Flour, classic bread, some soy sauce, breading, spelt, pasta, couscous, classic pizzas, classic pastries, croutons, classic pancakes and crepes, wheat cereals, etc. People on a gluten-free diet replace flour with gluten-free alternatives.
Meat: People on a plant-based diet don’t eat any meat. Vegans get their protein from beans, legumes, and nuts.
Animal Milk: cow milk, sheep milk, goat milk, etc. They replace it with almond milk, coconut milk, cashew milk, etc. Milk-based products are also excluded, such as cheese, butter, cream, whipped cream, etc.
And all other animal-based or animal-produced ingredients.

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a cookie tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, and xanthan gum.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add melted coconut oil, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla extract, and almond extract.
Stir and combine until it forms a cookie dough, then stir in chocolate chips until evenly incorporated
Roll dough into 8 cookie balls between your hands. One ball is about 2 oz/50g each.
Place each cookie ball on the baking sheet leaving a thumb-size space between each ball. The cookies won't expand in the oven, so you don't have to leave a big space between them.
Press the balls slightly with your hand palm to flatten cookies. Don't flatten too much, or the sides will form cracks, and they won't be as soft and moist. Keep the center thicker than the sides for a chewy cookie in the middle and crispy sides
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden on sides and slightly brown on top, not white.
Remove the cookie tray from the oven and cool down on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring on the rack to cool down to room temperature – about 1 hour
Store the cookies in an airtight container for up to 7 days in the pantry or the fridge. You can also freeze your vegan keto cookies in a sealed container and thaw 3 hours before
Hi, I'm Carine, the food blogger, author, recipe developer, published author of a cookbook and many ebooks, and founder of Sweet As Honey.
I have an Accredited Certificate in Nutrition and Wellness obtained in 2014 from Well College Global (formerly Cadence Health). I'm passionate about sharing all my easy and tasty recipes that are both delicious and healthy. My expertise in the field comes from my background in chemistry and years of following a keto low-carb diet. But I'm also well versed in vegetarian and vegan cooking since my husband is vegan.
Cooking and Baking is my true passion. In fact, I only share a small portion of my recipes on Sweet As Honey. Most of them are eaten by my husband and my two kids before I have time to take any pictures!
All my recipes are at least triple tested to make sure they work and I take pride in keeping them as accurate as possible.
