No, I do not believe that our paleolithic ancestors actually ate chocolate chip cookies.
But I do believe there is a benefit to tweaking some of our favorite recipes to make them free of chemicals or overly refined ingredients. Enter stage left: the best soft paleo chocolate chip cookies.
These paleo chocolate chip cookies are:
- gluten free
- refined sugar free
- ooey gooey soft in the middle
- perfectly rich with a little bit of sweet and a little bit of salty
- easy peasy lemon squeezy!
The Best Soft Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
I had tried almond flour chocolate chip cookies before, but when I used all almond flour the texture wasn’t quite right. I wanted something that was as close to my favorite chocolate chip cookies as I could get, while still being a slightly healthier version. This recipe uses a mix of almond flour and coconut flour to create lightly crisp and soft gluten-free cookies.
These cookies can be stored on the counter, but they do tend to lose their crispy outside and edges if you do. (They do stay perfectly soft and rich, though!) I prefer to store the cookies in the refrigerator, especially because the chocolate chips get nice and cold. 🙂 🙂 🙂
