My husband is a chocolate chip cookie monster. It’s his favorite cookie. On Wednesday I made a big batch of these cookies (which I’ve been perfecting for a while) for our friend’s birthday today. The recipe below makes about 14 cookies. When I woke up this morning, there were two left.


So while it’s a bummer I won’t be gifting these to my friend for his b-day, at least I know that they’re good. Sometimes I’m not sure if I like something I’ve made because I’m so used to eating grain and sugar free, or if they actually taste good.

Scott is a chocolate chip cookie expert and said these were really good – but very soft. He’s one of those people that prefers a crunchier chocolate chip cookie. I am not. These are super soft and chewy, just don’t over-bake them.

  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Combine the eggs, almond butter, coconut flour, coconut sugar, vanilla and baking powder.

    I have a question about the chocolate chips. They contain sugar so how are they Paleo?? I see this in many recipes and I thought that sugar was not Paleo at all. Sure wish it was.
    Could you please let me know if these chips do contain sugar.
    Thank you

      There’s such a minuscule amount, I mean TINY. It really makes no difference.
