Healthy Cookies (Paleo)

Hey there readers! I think it was about time I updated don't you think? Well today I went to Whole Foods and bought some ingredients to make Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe that healthy eating blogger Taralynn from Simply Taralynn.


The only difference between our versions of the cookie recipe is that I used real sugar instead of sugar-substitute (6 tsp). I'm too paranoid to even deal with the substitute stuff after I watch a NightLine episode that says it can cause cancer. No thank you.

Ingredients That I Used in My Version: 

  • 3 Cups Almond Flour (Not Packed Down) (This cost me around $8, it is sold by the pound in the "bulk" section)

  • *1 Tsp Baking Soda,

  • *2 Tsp Pure Vanilla

  • 1/2 Cup Organic Maple Syrup. (This was a tad bit pricey, I suggest shopping around I unfortunately was pressed for time and grabbed the first one I saw advertised. This cost me $11.99! Yikes!)

  • 6 tsp of Sugar 

  • 2 Large Eggs

  • 3/4 Cups Hersey Chocolate mini semi-sweet chips.

  • 1/2 Cup Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Melted in the microwave for 30 seconds. (This was $6, which was cheaper than I've seen at any other store that offers it.)


I mostly followed Taralynn's instructions on how to bake the cookies:


Preheat that oven to 375 degrees>bake for 10 minutes> A good spoonful of batter, however, I made minds somewhat in the 2 tablespoon size and they basically DOUBLED in size. Here are some photos of my baking process.  BY THE WAY! These come cookies come out fluffy, airy, and soft! So delicious, the downside of this recipe would probably that if you have a nut allergy, you can not make this. The "flour" is nothing more than almonds that have been grinder completely to the texture of grainy flour.

This is as Taralynn calls it:

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Cookies! Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Flour Free and Guilt Free!


There you have it friends! Also, I think the reason I had to use 3 cups of almond flour is because I only put 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Before adding the rest of the flour, the 2-2/3 cups of flour had my batter looking REALLY runny.

Until next time,
