Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Do you like your cookies chewy? These simple Paleo chocolate chip cookies have a tempting texture that may force you to shift your willpower into overdrive!

I made these cookies last night. I put them in an air-tight container and stuck it in the freezer. They became crispy which works well, too.

Truth be told, I like my chocolate chip cookies however I can get them.

The shredded coconut adds more to the texture of the cookie rather than giving it a coconutty taste. Although, I might not be able to taste it so much because I eat boatloads of coconut products and I’m immune to the flavor! This is a possibility.

I want to note here that you should be careful what kind of vanilla you buy. Don’t use the imitation vanilla products or the kinds that contain corn syrup. They should only have real vanilla and alcohol.

I recently found this post at averie cooks on homemade vanilla extract that I want to try out. I go through so much of the stuff and it’s pretty expensive. I’d love to have big bottles of vanilla that go on forever.

I used a cup of chocolate chips, and as you can see the cookies aren’t loaded. If you want more chocolate chips, feel free to adjust accordingly.

Oh, and I’m pretty sure this recipe made about two-dozen Paleo chocolate chip cookies. I have a bad habit of chowing down before I count. Oops!

    I JUST made these cookies. I’ve made numerous attempts at paleo baking for my very skeptical family and the response has always been “don’t make these again”. Not this recipe! Very tasty, good texture, and if you are like me and cannot follow a recipe exactly and will take certain liberties according to what you want to use in your pantry, this is a very forgiving recipe too! Thank you!! I look forward to trying your other recipes!!

      Thank you, Jill! I’m glad you enjoyed this recipe. I just made this one again the other day, and it’s definitely one of my favorites. Gotta be simple and forgiving, or it will never work for me!

    Go to a Mexican grocery store (a tienda) for your vanilla. Way better than the stuff here in the states, and you might get it in a big brittle for less$
