Just like almost everyone else in this world I am a huge chocolate chip cookie. In the last few months I have really grown to love paleo-friendly baking. I love that’s it’s actually possible to turn your favorite cake and cookie recipes into healthier recipes, without the use of refined sugars. Snacking with less guilt feels so much better. Who doesn’t like that? That’s why I love these Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are a great treat to satisfy a sweet tooth craving.
These paleo chocolate chip cookies are made with coconut flour and coconut oil. This recipe is absolutely scrumptious and it’s hard to tell the different from conventional chocolate chip recipes. As a matter of fact I like the clean taste of a paleo style cookies even more. These paleo-style chocolate chip cookies are not overwhelmingly sweet and recipes like this don’t send my blood sugar into a spiral effect. I feel that with all the paleo style cookie recipes I also don’t tend to overboard either – no need to eat the entire bag in order to feel satisfied. In addition, clean eating recipes like this don’t leave me tired afterwards.
It’s these kind of nutritious paleo snacks that actually keep you going and not feel like you need to take a rest on the couch.
Another plus about this paleo chocolate chip cookie recipe is the fact that my kids love them! Not that they know that it’s a healthier cookie or even care – but they really enjoy them, which makes me super happy in return.
