Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies Recipe

Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies will be your new favorites, for all time. Paleo or not, these babies are gorgeous!

Meet my new favorite cookie.

I’m having this thing with coconut this summer. It started with this peanut coconut sauce that I was making daily and putting on everything and now I’ve moved onto cookies.

I mean, can you blame me? Coconut and chocolate is such a perfect combination.

Naturally, I’m obsessed with these Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies.

I have been making a batch almost every week and then I’ll make some paleo ice cream and I’ll count down the minutes until the kids go to bed so I can sandwich the ice cream between these cookies and enjoy them in total silence.

That’s totally normal, right?

These cookies are actually really easy. You just use almond flour in place of the white flour you would typically use in a non-paleo cookie.

And then honey instead of sugar and coconut oil instead of butter. The rest is the same.

And then at the end you stir in some paleo-friendly chocolate chip cookies and some unsweetened flaked coconut.

And then all you have to do is bake until golden!

If you have never had a paleo cookie made with almond flour, it may take you a few cookies to get used to the texture. They are quite a bit softer than your standard chocolate chip cookie but not in a bad, falling apart sort of way.

They actually hold up really well, and as I mentioned, are perfect for ice cream sandwiches. Or dipping into paleo-friendly nut milk.

Or coffee. Or just hide in your pantry and eat them alone when you’re trying to hide from your kids because they’re driving you crazy and summer is very long.

But yeah, I think they’re delicious and to be completely honest, I would choose a paleo cookie over a regular cookie any day.
