Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ultimate Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies - Allergy Free Alaska
These Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies are my favorite cookies. They are crispy on the outside, yet chewy and soft on the inside. I make these for my family when we want a treat or a pick me up (I may have even let my girls have 2 for breakfast the other day… but I won’t confirm or deny that). I’ve made this recipe for several friends, some are gluten free, some are not. Regardless, everyone loves them, and most are completely surprised these cookies are grain free. They taste very similar to regular “Toll House Style” chocolate chip cookies. Grain-free tastes SO good! 

A Few Notes About Substitutions:
1. If you can’t do almond flour or nuts, this recipe isn’t for you. Try my Gluten Free Toll House Style Chocolate Chip Cookies instead (the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of almond flour, but you can substitute sorghum flour instead). 
2. If you are egg free, try these Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites, these Protein Packed Monster Breakfast Cookies, or these Coconut Flour Cookies from Flippin’ Delicious instead. 
3. And lastly, for sugar-free, try these Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chip Cookies (just use cocoa nib in place of the chocolate chips for completely sugar-free).

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 30-34 cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

These paleo chocolate chip cookies are a family staple recipe. They are chewy, low-carb, and filled with melty-chocolaty goodness!


  • 2 1/4 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2-3/4 cup dairy-free mini chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F) and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca starch, coconut sugar, baking soda, and sea salt.
  3. Cut in the coconut oil until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla. The dough will appear to be dry, but keep mixing until the ingredients come together to form a thick cookie dough.
  5. Stir in the Enjoy Life Chocolate Mini Chips.
  6. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown.
  7. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes until transferring to cooling racks to finish cooling completely.

Can I use regular sugar in place of the coconut sugar?


Saturday 6th of April 2019

Hi Alyssa, Coconut Sugar is less sweet than cane sugar (regular sugar). You can definitely try it, but start with a smaller amount, and then increase only if you think it needs it.

Is there anything I could use instead of coconut oil?

Butter or vegan butter should work just fine, too.

[…] Ultimate Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies – For my first experiment with grain-free cookies, I knew to start with these. Definitely a different texture than what I’m used to with the gluten-free cookies I usually make, since these are almost all almond flour, but good. Thumbs up all around from my family! […]
