I think we can all agree now that cookies are my bread & butter. There is something so comforting about a warm, chewy, delicious cookie. These healthier rocky road cookies will meet all those needs, but are also gluten, dairy, & grain-free
Ingredients you will need for these healthier rocky road cookies:
These cookies actually require only a few basic ingredients, & if you have made any of my recent cookies you will likely have most of the ingredients already on hand!
- Almond flour (I get this from Costco, as it is super affordable there, but you can also get it here)
- Coconut oil (if you don’t like the taste of coconut get this one)
- Coconut sugar
- Baking soda
- Pink salt
- Vanilla extract
- Coconut flour
- Dark chocolate chips (these are my favourite dairy-free ones)
- Marshmallows (I like these ones)
- Pretzels (I used these gluten-free ones)
- Collagen peptides (optional but I find really helps with the chewy texture of the cookies)
Tools you need for these cookies:
- Mixing bowl
- Measuring cups & spoons
- Spatula or mixing spoon
- Baking tray
- Parchment paper
A healthier rocky road cookie
One of my passions in life is to show people that healthy food can be delicious. These cookies, I believe, are proof of that. I took these to school & had all my friends sample them for me. They were SO impressed & love that they are also made with better for you ingredients. No dairy or gluten are needed to make these tasty, but healthier, cookies!
Make once, eat later:
I highly recommend making a batch of these healthier rocky road cookies to start the week. I love having some healthier snacks & treats made on the weekend for the busy week ahead. Healthier treats & snacks keep me more satiated & able to feel my best.
You could even double or triple the mixture & then either freeze the dough into pre-rolled balls & bake as desired for a fresh baked cookie in a pinch. Or you could bake them all & freeze some to take out as desired. I recommend the first option as this better preserves the texture of the cookies & the add-ins, in my opinion!
Leave your feedback!

These delicious dairy & gluten-free rocky road cookies are chewy, rich, full of flavour, & incredibly easy to whip up!
- 1 cup Almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1 Egg
- 1 tsp Baking soda
- 1/4 tsp Pink salt
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp Coconut flour
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (I like these dairy-free ones)
- 1/3 cup marshmallows (I used these vegan ones)
- 1/3 cup pretzels (these are my favourite gluten-free ones)
- 1/3 cup collagen peptides (optional, but I find really help make these cookies super chewy)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F & line a baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
Mix the softened coconut oil & coconut sugar together in a medium-large bowl.
Add the rest of the ingredients for the cookies to combine & mix until everything is well incorporated (except the marshmallows & pretzels).
Let sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
Roll a spoonful of the batter into a ball.
Place the balls on your prepared baking tray, pressing down slightly. Add a couple marshmallows & 1-2 pretzels on top of the cookies, slightly pushing them into the cookie dough. I like to add a few more chocolate chips to the top of the cookies as well. The dough spreads during baking so the toppings will fall into place when baking.
Bake for 9-12 minutes, remove from the oven & let cool slightly on the pan for at least 10 minutes. This gives a super fudgey & chewy final cookie. If you want a crunchier cookie, bake for 15 minutes.
*The collagen peptides are optional & the recipe will work without them, but I did find when I used them, the cookies came out slightly more chewy.
