Soft Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi friends,

Last week was the first week in I don’t know how long that I didn’t post a recipe. I’m usually so on top of it but I might be a little more MIA from the blog for a little while because…WE ARE MOVING! We are so excited but of course everything happens super quickly and settling into a new home is so important to me. I have published at least one post a week for SO long now that it feels weird to want to step back…even temporarily.

But there is nothing better to leave you off with than these Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies! Chocolate chip is such a perfect combo that you can never go wrong. These cookies are dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, refined sugar free and made with natural ingredients!

Because of the ingredients, these cookies don’t really change colour on the outside but the bottom does get a nice toasty brown. So grab a glass of milk and eat these while they are hot. You will LOVE how soft they are.

I can’t wait to see you try this recipe and dig in! As always, please tag me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook @balancingandie so I can see your lovely creation friends! It just makes my day!! To never miss a post again, you can subscribe to my blog and receive a freebie too!

Servings: 9-12 cookies

Soft Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond butter (or peanut butter)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or honey)
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix ingredients in the order listed until well combined.
  3. Divide mixture and shape into cookies (they won't expand much so shape to the size you want). Makes about 9-12 cookies based on size.
  4. Bake for at least 12 minutes, adding 2 minutes at a time. The bottom will be lightly brown and the centre lightly firm. The cookies don't brown on the top so continue to check until cooked to your liking. If you want more gooey cookies, cook less or more if you want a firmer cookie.


Ensure your eggs are at room temperature to avoid seizing up the coconut oil.
Feel free to use your preferred nut butter of choice.
