Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies {paleo & egg-free}

Happy December 1st! Wow, I personally cannot believe that December is already here and that the new year will be here before we know it. How fast did that come? I plan on making December a great month, filled with reflection, new goals, a new fitness routine, and so much more. For one, I embarked on a 28-day liver detox which began on Friday. I’ll elaborate more at some point throughout the month, but essentially it is a big elimination diet plus added nutrients and supplements. It’s going to be hard, but beneficial for me to say the least- mentally, and for my health!

Now, to get to today’s recipe! With all that said, I have been experimenting with cutting out eggs a bit. My food panel came back with a slight sensitivity, so I did a little 2-week elimination then a reintroduction. This was a huge shock at first since I ate eggs literally twice a day, everyday (hence the probable cause of it coming back as a sensitivity). Nonetheless, I asked you all if egg-free recipes were something you’d want/need. The response was overwhelming! I didn’t realize how many of you need/try to avoid eggs!

I worked on this recipe over and over until it tasted like those classic chocolate chip cookies you grew up eating! They are just right.

        Hi Lexi
        Thank you for your recipes, I’ve tried many of them, and use them repeatedly.
        I’m curious why you add a bit of coconut flour to the almond flour and don’t just use straight almond flour?
        Thanks. PS. I hope your detox goes well.
        Susan

      • I’m pretty new at paleo baking. So many recipes claim to taste like “the real thing” – and these actually do! They’re amazing! They seem to brown more/faster than the other chocolate chip cookie recipes I’ve made-even though they do stay chewy, which Iove! Thx so much for finally satisfying my craving!!

      • I’m so confused about paleo baking. I’m pretty sure cavemen didn’t use almond flour, chocolate chips, or eat cookies at all for that matter. I’m sure this is a delicious recipe, but what makes it paleo?

        • Tania- the idea isn’t to actually eat like a caveman, but to take the premise and eat real whole foods while eliminating processed foods from your diet. “Paleo” baked goods are definitely a treat and should be consumed in moderation. In terms of what makes it “paleo” – it’s made using almonds that are finely ground, raw honey, etc., all whole real ingredients. Nonetheless, a treat for sure! Paleo baked goods help people with a super limited diet (gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, etc.) be able to enjoy treats once and a while.

      • With a little planning, confidence and application, you can open up a
        new creative avenue for yourself: chart a course
        in which your own creativity and what you give back to your audience knows no bounds.
        A throaty sound often becomes a flat (pitch) sound. That way
        you can scream in a band without straining or doing any
        permanent vocal damage.

      • These say dairy-free but include butter. What can we substitute? Coconut oil? Or would the recipe not work the same? We have a milk allergy.

      • Hi Lexi! I only have coconut flour… could I use that instead of almond flour? Hoping to make some treats to get us through this blizzard! Thanks.

      • Followed the recipe to a T and the cookies fell apart at the slightest touch. What could have gone wrong here? I’m a baker. This is bizarre.

      • Hi Lexi, I’m new to your blog and I LOVE IT 🙂
        Just came here to comment that after my third attempt I finally had success with the cookies xD
        The first time I didn’t have parchment paper and greased the pan with butter, plus the butter for the batter was very soft (I left it at room temperature). I don’t know if that was the problem but they all melted and formed just ONE bit rectangular cookie :’D it was tasty though.
        The second time I had the wrong measuring cup up and used only half cup of almond flour xD
        But today I finally did it yay!
        We’re slowly cutting down gluten due to skin issues, just to see if it has something to do with it. Thanks for all the recipes 🙂
