Paleo CocoNutty Chocolate Chip Cookies

Screen-Shot-2014-03-20-at-9.37.22-PM Classic chocolate chip cookies are a hard thing to duplicate with paleo ingredients. Not to mention, nothing quite compares to a soft, warm cookie. I’m very much 80/20 paleo and do eat “non-paleo” stuff occasionally, but regular sweets just aren’t as good anymore once you eliminate them for extended periods of time. They kind of leave a weird sugar-coated feeling in my mouth and it’s just not worth it to me. This has led me to trying numerous paleo sweets recipes. Most have been successful, others… not so much. It’s definitely been trial and error for me but I’m getting better. Today we had a chili cook off at work so I decided to make some paleo cookies for dessert. I was on the fence about these cookies because they tasted a little bland last night when I took them out of the oven, but I jazzed them up with cinnamon and coconut sugar and everyone loved them. Here is the recipe so you can make them on your own. Enjoy! What you need:

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips (I don’t measure these. You can never have too much chocolate. Pour until your heart is content.)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut milk
  • cinnamon

How to:

  • Preheat the oven to 350
  • Combine coconut flour, almond flour, baking soda and sea salt in a bowl
  • In another bowl, beat the egg
  • Add the coconut oil and coconut sugar to the egg and mix
  • Add the vanilla and coconut milk and continue mixing
  • Pour the wet ingredients into  the dry and mix well
  • Add as many chocolate chips as you’d like and mix
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spoon out whatever size you enjoy eating
  • Flatten them a little and stick in the oven for 10-15 minutes
  • Once you take them out, sprinkle coconut sugar and cinnamon on top of them

I hope you love these cookies as much as I do! Let me know how yours turn out.   H
