Finding the best Chewy Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is essential for Paleo life, right?
I am guessing grandma’s cookies are not gluten-free or Paleo, though. Bummer.
To begin the search, I opened my go-to Paleo baking cookbook, Elena’s Pantry Almond Flour Cookbook.
She has a terrific recipe for Snickerdoodles that has a soft, chewy texture that just melts in your mouth. Mmmmmm….
These cookies were so delicious that we were inspired to adjust it for our Paleo chocolate chip cookies.
The recipe for the BEST Chewy Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie is so easy that my kids make it by themselves all the time. (I just help with the oven part!).
We can literally have warm cookies to enjoy in about 15 minutes from start to finish. Dangerously easy and SO yummy! 🙂
Cookies for breakfast? Yes, please!
Since the BEST Chewy Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with almond flour, they offer a healthy amount of protein and fat. We aim to start our day with protein and fat to help keep our blood sugar stable.
These cookies also have:
- NO white sugar or cane sugar
- Healthy fat
- NO gluten or grainsAt our house, that combo makes these cookies a healthy breakfast or snack option any day!
Should you use butter or coconut oil?
Of course, if you want dairy-free cookies, you can use refined coconut oil in place of butter as a terrific option. Coconut oil has many health benefits – including a brain boost)!
We have found that refined coconut oil doesn’t have any coconut flavor and will result in a deliciously chewy cookie.
We often use organic butter and slightly under bake the cookies to maintain the chewy cookie texture we like best.
If you like shopping at Costco…
We have found that Costco has several of the ingredients we need for the BEST Chewy Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Costco doesn’t carry arrowroot powder, but we have left out the arrowroot powder with success. The cookies are just a touch more dense, but still yummy.
Be sure to PIN this recipe for later, too!
