Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

Ahhh feels like home… a warm chocolate chip cookie dipped in milk (or in my house, almond milk). I love the smell of cookies in the oven, I mean who doesn’t, right? These cookies are a treat, and one you don’t have to feel quite as guilty about. This is one of my favorite recipes with great reviews.

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup blanched almond flour
  2. 1 tbsp coconut flour
  3. 1 egg
  4. 4 tbsp + 1 tsp grass-fed butter, palm shortening, or coconut oil
  5. 3 tbsp raw organic honey
  6. 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
  7. 1/8 tsp Himalayan sea salt
  8. 1/4 tsp baking soda
  9. ¼ cup or more chocolate chips (Enjoy Life's or your favorite dark chocolate chunks)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt
  3. In a small mixing bowl combine egg, honey, oil, and vanilla
  4. Combine bowls and mix well
  5. Drop tablespoons of dough on a lined baking sheet (I cover mine with parchment paper )

Notes
  1. Subbing coconut oil for grass-fed butter or palm shortening is my preferred method for delicious copy-cat Tollhouse cookies

  • These were awesome! I had to use cacao nibs and pecans because I was out of chocolate chips, but they were still great! Guilt free treat for sure :-)

    These were amazing. I used rice malt syrup instead of honey and also 85% dark chocolate. I also blanched by own almond and made almond meal. Perfect, guilt free treat.

  • Hi there, thanks for posting this recipe. I was just wondering how many cookies did you end up with? I’m just trying to work out the calories for each. Thanks heaps

  • New to Paleo, tried these and even my teenager liked them. Nice treat fresh out of the oven in very windy Walla Walla, Wasington!!

  • These are AMAZING! I was able to get 15 cookies from 1 batch. I didn’t have honey so I substituted with baking stevia. I also refrigerated the dough for 15 minutes before baking so they could hold their shape better. I don’t think I’ll be making traditional cookies any time soon. Thanks!!!

  • Did anyone else’s come out quite dry tasting? I had problems with the mix blending together well, but I thought the stickiness was due to my coconut oil not being completely melted when I added it. Also, during the instructions, it never mentions adding in the chocolate chips so I almost forgot to and ended up pushing them in one by one into the dough already on the tray.

    • Hi Shelley, I’ve never had that, actually quite the opposite, I always find them very moist. Make sure to melt your coconut oil or it hardens when mixed with other ingredients. I will adjust and put in the chocolate chips- thank you!

  • Today I am home for a snow day and about to make these cookies! I’ve been wanting to make them for a while and now I finally have found a free moment :) Thinking of pairing my cookies with some almond milk ice cream for a chip-wich indulgence after dinner! Thanks, Lexi!

  • Thanks for this amazing recipe! I have made them so many times already it’s ridiculous. They’re the most requested treat recipe in this house. :)

  • These are THE BEST paleo cookie I’ve ever made! Not an understatement! Everyone gobbled the first batch up so fast that the second time I doubled the recipe. When I doubled, I used half coconut oil, half ghee, and cut the honey down to about 4 tablespoons total. I just finished up the 21dsd so that seemed sweet enough for me! Many thanks for this amazing recipe!

  • These cookies are AMAZING! Even my non-paleo husband agrees. I subbed one tablespoon of maple syrup for the honey and the chocolate/maple syrup combo is to die for. Thank you!

  • I’m excited to make these, my son said he really wanted chocolate chip cookies on our trip and I’m trying to make cleaning up our eating not too difficult in the little ones. I have almond flour/meal from whole foods, do I need to do something to make it blanched? Can I mill shredded coconut to make coconut flour? Thank you for all your wonderful recipes :-)

    Reply
  • Hey! have to make these for a dinner party tonight and i’m out of coconut flour and well, its not available in the market atm … can i use desiccated/shredded coconut? or substitute for anything? if yes, does the amount of liquid reduce? please please reply soon!

    thanks! x

  • I just tried making these cookies and they turned into one big cookie on the pan lol kinda like a bar. I just cut it into pieces. The taste was ok but the texture was very oily. I used coconut oil. Not sure what happened.

  • I know a recipe is good when my youngest eats it and then asks for another batch the following evening. These are by far the best grain-free sugar-free chocolate chip cookies I have ever made and I have tried a lot of recipes.

  • Omg…..soooo good!!!
    Thank you Lexi.
    Tastes just like the bacon chocolate chip cookie at HG supply co in dallas….minus the bacon, which can always be added to replicate.
    They serve the warm cookie with almond milk cream. ;-)

  • How long do these cookies stay good for and should I refrigerate them? I’m going on vacation for 4 days and will make them before I leave and wasn’t sure if I should bake them right away or if I can refridgerate the dough and bake them when we get there.

  • Okay, honestly, I made these and they were gone in less than 10 minutes. These taste freaking BETTER THAN THE NORMAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. I ended up making 3 batches in less than 24 hours because these were phenomenal. So fluffly, light, and soft. I ended up putting only like 2ish tablespoons of honey, and they were still sweet. But I ended up putting only 2.5 TBS of coconut oil, because I thought 4TBS was too much, and when I made it with that much, it was really oily.

    Omg so happy I stumbled across this.

  • I rarely comment on recipes but I absolutely had to for this one. These are the best paleo cookies I have made. They are soooo soft and light. I cooked them for 10 minutes and they came out perfect. Next time I’m going to double the recipe.
    YUM thank you!!

  • OMG – soo good! I only got 10 because I just roughly used a spoon because this was just a trial run to taste-test. Next time I will use my cookie scoop. Again – soo good! Definitely agree with Sam – will double next time – thank you! :)

  • You might want to add. In guide add chocolate as it dint say so had to add them to mixture last which made the texture pretty crap. Shame really!

  • Great recipe – nice texture… dense yet chewy! I additionally covered with wax paper and chilled mixture first in frig for 15 min for dough to firm up, and then using a small cookie scoop, placed on parchment lined sheet and baked 12-15 min for a golden-brown and stable cookie (cooling on flat surface) – perfect for dunking!

  • Hi there! Two questions, I don’t really have almond flour in my house so could I just substitute it with more coconut flour? Also, about how many calories would you say each cookie is? Thank you! :)

    Reply
  • the flavor is there but mine were really dry and crumbly. I expected them to spread out a little but they just stayed in a little ball. Have you ever encountered this while making them? I definitely want to give this another go.

    Reply
  • This recipe is so simple it seems like a trick, but the cookies turn out AMAZING. I think the coarseness of the almond flour give it the crumbly/fluffy cookie texture that “real” white flour chocolate chip cookies have.

    The only change I made was to use maple syrup instead of honey (because its a pain to melt and measure my raw honey). Mine turn out a perfect softness (I hate crispy cookies)

    Thanks for this recipe!!

  • These are the absolute BEST paleo chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made! And like other have said … I’ve made a bunch of different recipes! These are truly fantastic. This will absolutely be our go-to cookie from now on. They were devoured within minutes. The only thing I did differently was use maple syrup instead of honey because that’s what I had on hand. Truly fabulous! Thanks for a great recipe!!

  • Delicious cookies! I just started making Paleo desserts for about a month now and this cookie recipe is the best one we have tried so far. They are better than tollhouse! I only used 3 tbl of coconut oil because that is all I had but they came out great. Thanks for this great recipe!

  • I made these last night to satisfy my sweet tooth and absolutely LOVED them! Thanks for the tasty recipe! I’ll be making another batch this weekend! :)
