Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Nothing is better than a classic chocolate chip cookie! They will forever be a classic that no one can resist! Whenever I try to decide what kind of cookies to make, chocolate chip cookies are one of the first always mentioned. There are many times when the only cookie that my family can agree on are chocolate chip cookies, so I end up making them more often than any other cookie. I once again want to provide a way for people who live a paleo lifestyle, to enjoy a classic food without all of the ingredients they don’t want to consume.

Making cookies and having them ready when your children get home from school can be a great way to put them in a good mood. It will give you the chance to talk to them sitting down to see how their day is going and it will also give them a break from school and refresh their mind for possible homework they might have.

Another fun idea is to make time to make cookies with children. I know, right? What a concept! Children love to cook with you if you give them the chance!  This also presents a great opportunity for your children to learn new skills and how to work together as a team. If you want to, you can even bring cookies to family members or neighbors. This is a great way to spread happiness and cheer with others.

What are some of your favorite memories of making chocolate chip cookies with others? Who do you like making them with? So without further ado here is our paleo chocolate chip cookie recipe for everyone to enjoy!

Here are some notes about the cookies you might want to consider when making them:

*I needed to bake these cookies on the top rack of my oven to get them to
brown evenly. Depending on your oven, they may need to be cooked on the
top rack.
*Because of the lack of gluten, these cookies will need to be handled more
gently and will break apart easier than a cookie with gluten.

      You could try using more of both the coconut and arrowroot flours but I am not sure what amounts…you’d need to play around with the ratios to get the correct texture.

    Mine turned out completely flat :-( The “dough” is very thin. I went over the recipe 4 times…. did exactly as it says. What went wrong?

    • Rebecca says

      I’m sorry they didn’t work out for you! I’m not sure why yours were flat since they’ve worked out fine for many others…maybe your coconut oil was too soft or liquidy? Sometimes that can be the case.

  2. Nolan says

    I love this recipe! I find that they store better in the fridge. Keeps them together better. But I had one question. You say to use a “2 T. Scoop” to place the batter on the baking sheet. What does the “T.” mean? Tablespoon or Teaspoon?

  3. Robert says

    Made these for my family. I’m currently doing the auto immune protocol and can’t eat nuts, chocolate, or eggs, so I didn’t get to taste them. My fam loved them! I mean REALLY loved them and are asking for more. I found many different versions of Paleo cookies but Felt yours would be the best. I can tell you know what you’re doing. Thank you for your recipes!

    I have been baking wheat free lately and feeling much better. I do love coconut so no issues there. I do see a lot of honey and maple syrup in this recipe. I do not like either of those. Can I substitute with agave syrup?

    • Rebecca says

      Arrowroot starch is somewhat similar to tapioca flour, though I cannot vouch for it’s results as a substitution in this recipe as I have not used it in it. Let us know if you try it!
