Okay, this post has been a long time coming. Creating a half-way decent chocolate chip cookie which is gluten-free, dairy-free, and and sugar-free (well, processed cane sugar-free anyway) is pretty much the Holy Grail of Paleo baking for Paleo cookie fans.
Frankly, I as I write this I am not quite sure how to frame this post. Although I am posting it today, I fully expect to keep coming back to update it regularly. Now that it is fall and the Holiday season is fast approaching, I will no doubt be spending more time in the kitchen and cranking out more of these recipes. The Paleo food scene is constantly moving forward and I am certain that better and better recipes for Paleo chocolate chip cookies will continue to surface over time.
I am not going to post a single specific recipe in this post (for now anyway), but I am going to provide links to the best Paleo/Primal/Ancestral/Gluten-Free/Legume-Free/Dairy-Free/Cane Sugar-Free (even some vegan) chocolate chip cookie recipes that I have tried so far. These are all chocolate chip only recipes, not banana chocolate chip or some other combination, I will leave that for another post. I’ll also begin re-organizing the Paleo Cookie Recipes page to reflect this list of links and make some other changes that I have have been neglecting since spring.
What follows is a list of the best Paleo chocolate chip cookie recipes which I have made to date (again, I will update this post regularly). I won’t bother listing the ones that completely sucked and will spare you the mouths full of nastiness that I have already endured. I have also listed these recipes in order according to my personal preference. Here goes:
The Best Paleo Choclate Chip Cookie Recipes… Ever
PaleoChocolate Chip Cookies – CupcakesOMG (read the post to understand the strikethrough; almond butter based; simple and delicious)
- Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies – The Detoxinista (this is the recipe that most other people’s variations are based on; vegan and sweetened with maple syrup; incase you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of using maple sugar as a sweetener)
- Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies – The Paleo Project (coconut flour and almond butter based)
- Vegan Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies – Paleo Spirit (coconut flour and almond flour base sans-egg)
That is all for now. Make sure you bookmark this post and I will continue to add more recipes and photos as I continue to try out more Paleo chocolate chip cookie recipes.
