Chewy Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies


As you can tell by the Sweet Treats page, I love chocolate chip cookies. I don’t think there can ever be enough variations. Especially when making paleo cookies, so many different types of flours and sweetener choices to pick from and combine. I used date sugar for these bad boys, it gives them their dark color and caramel notes. They’re chewy and chocolaty and just perfect for ice cream sandwiches!

This recipe is just another variation of my “perfect cookie equation” I love changing the ingredients and seeing the different results. It’s a simple enough recipe with ingredients you can find any your local grocer, amazong or Whole Foods.
