Einkorn Chocolate Chip Cookies
These einkorn chocolate chip cookies are on another level, seriously! They have such a mouthwatering sink your teeth into texture that’s hard to resist.
*I used whole wheat einkorn flour for this cookie recipe. Or you can use einkorn all-purpose flour instead*
I won’t say this is the perfect cookie, but it sure comes pretty close; in my estimation. And I’ve been told over and over again how good they are. So, I can’t wait for you to try them out for yourself.
About These Cookies
I’m sure you’re wondering about the texture of these cookies, right? Not to worry. These cookies have a delightful light crunch on the outside, while being soft and chewy inside.
And may I also add that these cookies have that sink your teeth into texture going on. Last but not the least, these cookies are really easy to make.
What’s So Great About Einkorn Flour?
Not too long ago, I couldn’t even tell you what einkorn flour was. So I know many of you are wondering the same: what exactly is einkorn (flour)? And what makes it so great?
I happened to spot einkorn flour while shopping in Whole Foods (natural and organic foods store) a while back. The main benefit with this flour is that it’s very low in gluten – which helps to make it more easier to digest.
Therefore this flour is a great option for those of you who are sensitive to gluten (source). And the gluten strands that it does contain are weaker than average gluten strands.
Overall, einkorn flour is great for anyone to use. It’s said to be less absorbent than regular flour, but I personally have had great results when using einkorn flour equally in place of regular flour.

Can I Use Regular Flour to Make These Einkorn Chocolate Chip Cookies?
Good question. I’m sure the cookies will taste just fine if you use regular whole-wheat flour. They’ll still be very nutritious..
But it’s totally your call. I would love to hear how it went if you made these cookies using another flour beside the einkorn flour.
How to Make These Cookies
When I tell you these einkorn chocolate chip cookies are super easy to make, I’m not exaggerating.
It takes less than twenty minutes to make the dough. And the dough itself comes together in one large bowl by just combining all of the ingredients together.
The only other thing is refrigerating the dough for 25 minutes. This makes the dough easier to work with, and enhances the texture of the cookies overall.
*You can try baking the cookies straightaway if you prefer, but the dough may be a little too soft yet*
Einkorn Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients
If you plan on making these cookies, here are all of the ingredients you’ll need to have on hand. Except for the einkorn flour, you probably have most of them already.
- Einkorn Whole Wheat or All Purpose Flour: Or you can use regular whole-wheat flour instead.
- Baking Powder
- Baking Soda
- Chocolate Chips (dairy-free or regular)
- Salt: Only a small amount is needed.
- Coconut Sugar: If you don’t have coconut sugar on hand, use light brown sugar instead. They taste almost similar.
- Vanilla Extract
- Unsweetened Applesauce: Helps add a soft chewiness to the cookies.
- Room Temp Egg: By being at room temperature, the egg can be incorporated into the dough more easily.
I hope you enjoy this cookie recipe from start to finish. And if you have any feedback/comments, let me know. Thank you and God bless!
