“I Can’t Believe These Are Paleo” Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve probably mentioned that my husband likes to tell people he married me for my chocolate chip cookies, which I sent him every month during his first deployment. So I’m not sure why I never tried to make a Paleo version until a friend of mine tried it first. Probably because I thought they wouldn’t turn out right. But, in the words of Thorin Oakenshield (because I’m a nerd like that), “I have never been so wrong.”

These are so delicious that another friend, who doesn’t even follow the Paleo diet, asked for the recipe. They do taste a little different of course, but the texture is almost perfect. Definitely worth it for the healthy-ish factor. Especially since you might want to eat a lot of them.

I found the recipe {here} at GlutenFreeOnAShoeString.com. It’s pretty easy for Paleo. The main ingredient is almond flour, with a little bit of coconut flour, which I think soaks up some of the oil from the almonds. It also called for coconut palm sugar; I cheated and used the white sugar I had. Whatever, almost Paleo.

Here’s how mine turned out. Don’t they look like “real” cookies?

The blog I found it on {here} has a list of other Paleo cookie recipes if you’d like to try them.

Also, I have a favor to ask. This blog is pretty new (thanks new followers!) and I would really love some feedback. For example, writing style: not sure if I’m funny or just annoying. Feel free to comment or email, and I might just throw in a coupon for my Etsy shop šŸ˜‰

Hope you enjoy the recipe (and the random Hobbit reference)!
