With all of the treat recipes that I have here on my blog, something was missing. My favorite treat of all was totally absent from my blog… until now. Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies have arrived!

Chocolate Chip Cookies have always been my all time favorite dessert. We had them around entirely too much when I was growing up, and I have dozens of memories of eating them. I loved them straight from a box, a boxed mix, or homemade. But the thing with chocolate chip cookies is that they can vary greatly depending on how they’re made. They are not all created equal by any means.

I love chocolate chip cookies that are soft and pillowy right out of the oven and are still easy to bite into once they cool. I always had trouble finding exactly what I’m looking for… until now! A paleo chocolate chip cookie that’s AIP, egg-free, dairy-free, soft and delicious.

How to make these paleo & AIP Chocolate chip cookies

  • Sift together the tigernut flour, tapioca starch, baking soda, and gelatin
  • Next pour in the vanilla, maple syrup, and coconut oil and stir well to combine
  • Finally, mix in the chocolate (or carob for AIP) chips and sea salt
  • Form the batter into cookies about 1-1.5 inches in diameter. You’ll have 7-8 cookies
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool (preferably on a cooling rack) for at least 20-25 minutes.

The Ingredients You Need for the Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tigernut flour

One of my favorite flours for AIP baking. You can get this at health food stores, or on Amazon.

Tapioca Starch

You can also sub arrowroot here.

Maple syrup

I haven’t tried to swap honey here, but I assume it would work!

Coconut oil

I have listed some coconut free alternatives below, but I have not tested these cookies to be coconut free.

Grass-fed gelatin powder

You cannot sub collagen. 

Dairy-free chocolate chips (sub carob for AIP)

I use enjoy life chocolate chips, but you can also sub this for AIP.
