The chocolate chip cookie reinvented. I love to find a paleo version of my favorite treats. It makes me feel better about myself even if that’s just in my head.
Paleo foods are all about trust. I’ve experimented with a ton of different recipes for my favorite desserts but they don’t always turn out. Sometimes you need good ole’ flour and sugar but I don’t have those things in my house, and I won’t be buying them anytime soon.
Trust is huge with everything.
I asked my husband Jon to pick up some coffee creamer on his way home from work the other day. I mean, we’re married, it should go without saying what my favorite kind is. Jon walks in the door and of course, I’m excited to see him, but I run straight to the bag of groceries. I run my hands through the large paper bag just beaming with excitement and towards the way bottom, I finally find the creamer. As I pull it out of the bag my heart sinks as the bottle reads,
PEPPERMINT FREAKING MOCHA
Does he even know me? I thought we understood each other but I have never been so disgusted. Not only is peppermint mocha the nastiest thing right behind pumpkin spice, but it’s the middle of May and the last thing I need is peppermint freaking mocha.
ANYWAY, back to my point, paleo baking has reminded me a lot of the trust I lost that day with Jon. However, these Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies have made me regain some hope with paleo baking. As for Jon, I’m still working on him.
These cookies remind me a lot of my Almond Butter Cookies (which if you haven’t tried them, stop reading this and head there :)) They’re are soooooo good. Like, SO good. I don’t feel bloated or gross after eating these cuties. Gluten, grain, and dairy free making them perfect for sensitive stomachs.
Enjoy, my friends!
\\ TIPS: The reason for putting the dough in the fridge, is so that the chocolate chips combine in the dough. You may find right when you mix in the chocolate it won’t latch onto the dough due to the oil content in the almond/coconut flour and coconut oil. Because all almond flour is different, it’s hard to tell how much natural oils will come from the flour the more you mix it around. There is nothing wrong with it, it’s just easier to scoop to your baking sheet when the dough has been in the fridge for a while. Remember, take the cookies out when they’re still a little soft and let them cool completely!
Alright, beauties – let me know how these turn out for you. I am obsessed with these, and I hope you are too! Talk soon.
