What Makes These Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies So Perfect?
These Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies happen to be so perfect, my husband prefers them over standard chocolate chip cookies! They are soft, gooey and so heavenly, you don’t even realize they are paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, oil-free and guilt-free! Full of healthy fats, made with only whole food ingredients and containing zero processed sugar, these Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies are in a league of their own.
Honestly, these Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies are so clean, I often eat one as a pre-workout snack. With the healthy fats from the almond and coconut flour, it’s just what I need to get a boost of energy for a good workout.
You know what else makes them so perfect? How simple they are to make! All you do is stir the wet ingredients together, add the dry ingredients and fold in the chocolate chips Then scoop out little balls, place them on a cookie sheet and bake for roughly 10 minutes. I prefer my cookies on the softer side, so 10 minutes is the sweet spot for me, but if you like a little crunch, leave them in for about 12 minutes!
Make These Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies Vegan!
In this Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe I used eggs, but if you want to go for a vegan option, you can easily swap them out. Using a vegan alternative won’t take away from the perfectness of this recipe. A few of my favorite ways to swap out eggs in a baking recipe are to use bananas, pumpkin puree, mashed avocado or flax eggs—¼ cup of mashed banana, mashed avocado or pumpkin puree is equivalent to one egg. And for flax eggs, 1 tablespoons of ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons of water is also equivalent to one egg. Be sure to let your flaxseed absorb the water for 5 minutes before adding it to your recipe.
While some vegans consume honey, I know some do not. So, if you happen to be a vegan who excludes honey from their diet, you can swap out the ¼ cup of raw honey from this Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe for 100% pure maple syrup. Simply use a 1:1 ratio.
