Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 11 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes (includes cooling time)
  • Yield: 12 cookies 1x

Description

These chocolate chip cookies are soft, paleo, only require 6 ingredients, and there is no mixer required! Dairy free, gluten free, vegan and ready in less than 45 minutes.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup cashew butter (can substitute well-stirred, creamy almond butter)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (aff link)
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 ounces paleo-friendly dark chocolate, chopped (I love to use hazelnut butter dark chocolate)
  • pinch of sea salt, for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line two baking sheets with nonstick silicone mats or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cashew butter, coconut sugar, egg and baking soda. Use a wooden spoon or sturdy spatula to mix until evenly combined and no large streaks of cashew butter remain. Fold in 3/4 of the chocolate (about 4 ounces).
  3. Use a large cookie scoop (aff link) (about 1 1/2 Tablespoons) to portion out balls of dough onto prepared baking sheets. You want to give the cookies room to spread, so I recommend no more than 6 per baking sheet (though you can probably fit up to 8 if need be).
  4. Press remaining chocolate pieces into the tops of each cookie and sprinkle with sea salt.
  5. Bake each batch for 11 minutes, or for a few minutes longer if you prefer a more crisp cookie. They will be soft when removed from the oven, and will crinkle and flatten as they cool – let cool completely on the baking sheet* (about 20 minutes). Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge.
  • *I’m serious. Really let them cool completely, as they will set as they cool and could fall apart on you if you try to remove them sooner.
