The Best (Paleo) Chocolate Chip Cookies


Would you believe me if I say that these cookies are the real deal? That despite being paleo and grain-free they don’t just look appetizing but they are actually delicious? And that you won’t be disappointed when you take the first bite?
You don't?
That's too bad, because these (Paleo) Chocolate Chip Cookies will exceed all your taste and texture expectations.
In fact, I genuinely believe that they are actually better than the original (you know, the cookies made with white flour and sugar).

I served it to a couple of friends that are used to eating the break-and-bake Tollhouse cookies and they thought that they were the real deal.
That’s the true test for me.
If I can pass my food off to people who are not used to eat paleo and have them love it more than the original, then I know it’s a winner recipe.

That’s why I labeled these paleo cookies as “The Best”.
In fact, I’m so obsessed with these cookies that I had to stop making them, as I find it really hard to restrain myself from eating the whole batch in one sitting.
I have zero self-control.

These cookies are great for making ice-cream sandwiches and it’s also a lot of fun to bake them into mini cookies.
Thick, chewy, and with the perfect texture. These are truly the BEST cookies!

You can find the full recipe on Erin's website.
Just note that I've used less chocolate chips than she did (i.e., 1 cup) and that I've made much smaller cookies (I scooped 1 tablespoon of dough, made 25 balls, and baked for about 10 to 11 minutes.)

    2. Thank you Anon for the prompt answer to Unknown's question. I agree, sunflower butter and sunflower seed flour should work.
      BTW if you do make 'em, please report back! :)
