Would you like to eat sweets and not worry about sugar intake? How about indulging in cookies without feeling of guilt after eating it? If that’s the case - paleo cookies would be just right for you!1. Chocolate Chip Paleo Cookies
You see, paleo cookies are one of the healthiest sweets you can have. Many people suffer from health risks brought about by ordinary food intake, but fortunately healthy alternatives exist.
Mainstream media has been promoting sugar-free food products as a way to avoid diabetes and help weight loss. However, they do not tell you effects of artificial sweeteners, aspartame, saccharine. They do not state how cancerous these and many other substances are. This is where paleo cookies come in.
One of the few ways you can be sure that you are eating healthy and nutritious foods is to go the paleo way. To satisfy your sweet tooth, I shall give you here some recipes for paleo cookies which would not only be tasty, but also healthy and nutritious.
This first recipe is very popular with most of the people having a “sweet tooth”. It will also satisfy cravings in between meals.
As with most of the things with paleo diet, ordinary chocolate chip cookies have their equivalent in paleo cookies.
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
- 1/2 cup of coconut nectar (you can also use organic maple syrup)
- 2 cups of etoliated almond flour
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extracts (double strength if possible)
- 1/2 cup of melted ghee, coconut oil, or butter
- 3/4 cup of dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon of Celtic sea salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the dry ingredients inside a big bowl and mix wet ingredients inside a little bowl. Then, combine the 2 bowls into one. Using a small dough scoop for cookies, form half inch balls and place them on a piece of parchment paper cookie sheet. (Silpat is the one I use). Press your dough down in a pan and form little round disks. (The dough may not melt or spread out quickly like what it does when using regular flour.)Bake them for at least 10 minutes. (you can bake in a longer time if you want your cookies to be crunchy) After baking, place them in a nice wire rack in order for them to cool.
2. Nutty Paleo Cookies
- 2-3 cups of ground walnuts
- 4 cups of blanched almond flour/meal
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 2 cups of raw honey
- 1/4 tsp. ginger
- 1/2 cup chopped dried fruit (cranberries, mixed fruit, raisins, dates, etc)
Preheat your oven until it reaches 350 degrees. Grease lightly your cookie sheets with coconut oil or maybe use some parchment paper. (Parchment paper is better.) Warm up your honey inside a saucepan then let it cool slightly. Begin with flour and spice sifting. Place your warm honey inside a good mixing bowl. Gradually pour flour mixture, stir until they are well blended. Add the dried and chopped fruits. Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture on your cookie sheets. One alternative method rolling out the dough until it is a quarter inch thick (it will be hard to handle as it is very sticky), cut them into squares and bake them. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Macadamia-Chocolate Paleo Cookies
Heat up oven to 325 Degrees F. Combine all your ingredients inside a bowl, mix them well. Roll the dough between a pair of baking paper sheets until it is slightly 1/4″ think. Using cookie cutter or a knife make your cookies and roll the dough again if necessary. Line baking paper on your baking tray and place your cookies, between them an inch of space. Bake them for some 8-10 minutes, cool them down before serving.
4. No-Bake and Gluten-FreePaleo Cookies
- 2/3 cup of macadamia nut butter
- 1-1/2 tbspof raw honey
- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp of cocoa powder
- 1 cup of almond meal/flour
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
- 1/2 cup of semisweet or dark chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup of raw honey
- 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
- 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 cup finely chopped almonds, pecans or walnuts
- 1/2 cup almond butter (I used self-grind)
Prepare a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Process your nuts inside your food processor until they finely chopped and almost ground. Set them aside and combine your chocolate, your almond butter, some olive oil and the honey over a little heat inside a medium-sized saucepan for 2 -3 minutes, until it is smooth and until chocolate you added is melted. Take it away from the heat and, after that, add in the cinnamon, coconut plus the nuts. Drop tablespoonfuls or teaspoonfuls of the mixture to the baking sheets you lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate them for not less than 30 minutes, until they become hard. Store them inside a container in your refrigerator that is impossible for air to pass through.
5. Fudgey Paleo Cookies
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil, melted
- 2 extra-large or 3 standard size eggs
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Few drops of liquid Stevia (or additional tablespoon honey)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 heaping tbsps of raw honey
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Take a good medium-sized bowl and mix up coconut flour, the cocoa powder, salt, the baking powder. Add the other ingredients, mix them until they’re incorporated. Let it sit for a minute (let the coconut flour soak some liquid up- rest the batter , it helps trust me). Mix them again to the point that all are entirely mixed. The batter will resemble a regular, typical brownie batter- not too moist, but so much dry, either- it is slightly sticky. If necessary, add in some more of that vanilla extract, olive oil or the coconut oil melted. Shape each tablespoon of batter into a little cookie shape and place them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake them on some middle rack in 8 to 10 minutes, or until you reach your desired softness and crispness. Under-baking will create the nicest and best “brownie” texture.
6. Apple Cinnamon Paleo Cookies

- 2 Cups of Chopped Red Apples, skin on

Heat up oven to 350 Degrees. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT the eggs inside a good food processor, and keep processing it until pieces are very small yet still a bit chunky. If you are using a too small food processor and cannot fit everything, repeat it 2-3 times. I first did the raw almonds and apples second. Once all processed, add eggs to the mixture inside a big mixing bowl and mix them well. Form your mixture into the shape of “patties” then place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. It is up to you to decide on their size, you can even turn them into bars. Mine was like 2 inches throughout and got like 15 cookies. Bake them for 30 Minutes.
