The Best Ever Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Course: Dessert
Author: Camille Macres
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup coconut sugar or 1/2 cup white & 1/2 cup brown if you cant find but coconut much healthier
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened use ghee or coconut oil if you can’t handle dairy
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour arrowroot or potato starch would work, too
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon salt depending on whether you use salted butter and/or like to taste salt in your sweets like I do
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips I like Enjoy Life brand, semi-sweet ok, too
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk butter and sugar until well combined.

  3. Add egg, almond butter and vanilla and blend well.

  4. In another small bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients and blend.

  5. Add dry to wet and combine, then add chocolate chips for one last blending.

  6. Chill in refrigerator for 1-3 hours to firm dough, if desired. Not necessary, but makes easier to roll into a ball for uniform cookies.

  7. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. These cookies spread out to be very thin, so make sure to put at least 2 inches between small cookies (2 tsp dough) and 3-4 inches for larger cookies (1 tbsp dough) or you will end up with 1 big cookie!

  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden around the edges.

  9. Allow to cool completely on parchment paper before removing. If you don’t use the parchment, only allow to cool for 10 minutes and remove while still warm or they will break when coming off the pan, but I highly recommend parchment for this recipe. They are delicate!
