I am a huge Paleo follower and I've been longing for a healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe. This recipe nailed it! I used all the ingredients except instead of using the dark chocolate chips I substituted a bar and a half of 85% dark chocolate bars. I used the end of a screwdriver to break up the bar into very small pieces. I was afraid my cookies would stick to the baking sheet so I sprayed some olive oil on it. I am so happy to have come across this recipe - delicious!


My husband is a severe critic of anything with coconut flour in it. These cookies surprised both me and my husband, and we enjoyed them very much! No water needed. I did refrigerate them for about an hour before baking them so they would be a little more firm to roll into balls. I do need to say that I halved the recipe (12 servings), and found that the amount of chocolate chips indicated for this amount (1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp) was way too much...I couldn't get them all to mix into the dough. Next time I will not add the extra 2 Tbsp if I make that batch size again. 10 minutes was a good time, they were firm on the outside and very soft on the inside. Next time I might cook them for only 8 minutes to have an even softer outer. :)


Dough was very stiff, so I added 2 TBS coconut milk. Also used 1 TBS maple syrup to increase sweetness. My husband REALLY liked these. Thank you for the recipe.
