The Best Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've searched around for a good paleo chocolate chip cookie. I've tried several recipes--it's either too dense, or too chewy, or flat, or it tastes way to "paleofied" and not like the real thing.

I want real chocolate chip cookies. And I want them to be simple--not requiring any refrigeration of dough or weird, hard to find paleo flours. (I hate the word "blanched") I also want easy--no weird molding to make them appear more like traditional cookies or whatever. Thus these are "drop" cookies.

After a lot of experimentation, reading and recipe searching I've made these.

And I think they are perfect. I make them weekly.

You Will Need
  • (I used blanched) 1 cup Almond Flour  
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 heaping tablespoons Cashew Butter (mine was not raw)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • almost 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (or less if you hate chocolate)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees f, and Cover a pan with parchment paper. Mix all above ingredients together in whatever random order you want, stir. Make sure the coconut oil is not in one big lump. Let the dough sit for 5 minutes to "raise" or just cook how it is if you are lazy. Place heaping tablespoons on the parchment paper, spaced about 1 inch apart. I got three rows of 5, so 15 cookies. Cook for 10 minutes or until the top is slightly browned. Cool. Eat.

They are delicious. Let me know if you make them, okay?
