Paleo Chocolate Chips Cookies

It doesn’t get much better than a classic chocolate chip cookie, especially when it is paleo!  These cookies feature my homemade chocolate chips and have a soft and chewy texture that is just perfect in a cold glass of almond milk.  This will definitely be on my Christmas cookie platters this year!

Chocolate Chip Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup refined coconut oil
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • ⅓ cup raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional

Chocolate Chips Directions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • In a medium saucepan melt the coconut oil
  • Once melted, add the cacao, honey and vanilla extract to the melted coconut oil.
  • Allow to simmer slightly while whisking to remove lumps and avoiding it to burn, a little less than a minute. (If it simmers to long the chocolate will become to thick)
  • Remove from the heat and let sit and stir for about a minute to slightly thicken.
  • Pour onto the lined baking sheet.
  • Smooth to about ¼” thick.
  • Freeze at least 30 minutes or until solid.
  • Cut into chunks
  • Store in airtight container in the freezer.
