Perfect Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 20 cookies
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1/2 cup grass-fed butter, ghee, OR coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup arrowroot starch
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour, if using any brand other than Honeyville Coconut Flour, use a slightly scant 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tbsp grass-fed gelatin, we use Great Lakes Unflavored Beef Gelatin
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, use Enjoy Life brand for a dairy-free, soy-free option


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F & line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk dry ingredients (except coconut sugar & chocolate chips) together.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk butter/oil, sweeteners, & vanilla together until a brown syrup forms. Slowly pour & whisk into flour mixture until dough forms.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula and let dough sit for 1-2 mins before forming cookies, using a tablespoon for consistent sizing.
    • For soft, chewy cookies - simply roll out dough balls, just barely flatten the tops, and place on baking sheet.
    • For chewy-inside & crispy-outside cookies - roll dough balls, then slightly flatten to 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 inch diameter.
    • For crispy cookies - Roll dough balls, then, flatten to 2 inch diameter.
  5. Bake for 10-12 mins and let cool on a wire rack before serving.

These cookies are AMAZING!!! Absolutely amazing!! I have tried and tried to make cookies that are gluten, nut and white sugar free and I haven't found a recipe yet that comes out nearly as delicious as this one! They are crunchy and crispy and soft all at the same time! Everyone in my family gives these a five star review! I used 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/4 cup butter and used maple sugar in place of the coconut sugar and they were perfect! I don't ever leave reviews but these cookies are just SOOOO good! :)

Made these today..turned out perfect..I used monk fruit as my sweeter instead of coconut palm sugar...let the dough set a little longer than a couple of min...they turned out great..

I'd like to make a version of this for my mother however she is allergic to Coconut, Almonds, and white rice. Any chance I could do all tapioca?

Hi! Do you think I could use collagen peptides instead of the gelatin?

It's actually very complicated in this busy life to listen news on TV, thus I simply use internet for that reason, and take the latest information.
