Chocolate Chip Cookies…  the classic sweet indulgence of our time.  I was that girl growing up: synonymous with the word Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I brought them everywhere.  The cookie was my go-to whenever I felt like ‘just baking something.’  This wholesome variation is entirely Paleo and grain free, refined sugar free and dairy free.  So much goodness in one little cookie.  Enjoy!

    These are amazing. I love how rich they are. The almond flour and vanilla work really well together!

    I made these and it was so difficult to form the balls, the chocolate chips would stay outside the dough and I had to push them in with my hands! The taste is good but very dry texture, I think there’s not enough wet ingredients for the dry. Any ideas?

      Hi Brigette! I’m sorry to hear you had difficulty forming the balls. Maybe next time you could chop up the chocolate chips a bit. Also, did you use melted coconut oil? I’ve found melted coconut oil is key in the recipe.

    I made this same recipe, only I used Oat Meal instead… it was a little drier than normal so I added one banana (I mashed it up until it was liquid). The banana works as a bonding agent and is very few calories… the cookies were out of this world delicious!

    Saw query about amount of coconut oil, but I am wondering if the amounts of salt (12t), baking soda (14t), and coconut oil (14c) is also incorrect. I assume they should read 1/2t, 1/4t, and 1/4c respectively…I was not thinking when I put in the salt amount and now I think I need to throw out the flour, b soda and salt and start over! Ugh.

    Thank you in advance for responding. I ordered the book today, but had serious hankering for chocolate chip cookies!

    Thank you.

    Me again! I just checked this recipe against the one in your cookbook. The cookbook version is missing the coconut flour and vanilla extract. What difference does the coconut flour make?

      HI! The coconut makes the cookie a bit chewier. The cookbook recipe doesn’t have the coconut, and is a softer cookie. Both are delicious!
