Hi guys! Since so many people have sent me messages lately expressing interest in my paleo cookies, I decided to share my top 3 go-to paleo cookie recipes with you all. The reason I love these recipes are because they are super simple, require very few ingredients, and also take very little time to make!
Tone It Up Paleo Cookies:
2 bananas (mashed)
1 egg (or flax egg)
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I didn’t use this but they would probably be much more cakey and actually cookie-like with it)
Coconut oil spray (optional)
Preheat oven 350 degrees
Combine all ingredients in bowl
Spray cookie sheet with coconut oil spray. add 2 tbsp of mixture and place on sheet
Bake for 13 minutes

**Not paleo but threw it in as a surprise because they’re amazing
2 ripe bananas
1 cup quick oats (can get gluten free)
¼ cup dark chocolate chips or "enjoy life” chocolate chips
½ tsp cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
Preheat oven 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
Mash the bananas in a medium sized mixing bowl until most of the lumps have smoothed out
Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix well
Scoop heaping tablespoon sized portions onto parchment lined sheets
Bake for 15 minutes (rotate sheet halfway through)
Paleo Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies:
1 cup of smooth Almond Butter (or any nut butter you like)
1/2 cup of coconut sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup Enjoy Life dairy free chocolate chips (or mini dark chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with silicone baking mat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond butter, coconut sugar, egg (or flax egg), and baking soda. Fold in the chocolate chips. Let the dough rest for about 15 minutes.
Using a small cookie dough scoop, form tablespoon-sized balls of dough and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Let them cool for at least 15 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer them carefully to a cooling rack. They will be crumbly if you try to move them too early, so be sure to let them set up.
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
½ cup coconut oil room temperature
1/2 cup of agave nectar OR ¾ cup coconut sugar (I used agave)
1 egg room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2¼ cups (9 oz.) blanched almond flour
1 cup (6 oz.) enjoy life chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
Beat together the coconut oil and coconut sugar until smooth.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Add the almond flour, salt, and baking soda to the wet ingredients. Mix until well incorporated. Fold in the chopped chocolate.
*** I did not do this part because no time for it but the recipe says to then “If you used coconut sugar, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour (can prepare up to 48 hours ahead of time)”
When you're ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Scoop cookies and place on parchment lined baking sheet. **Optional - Sprinkle with flaky sea salt
Bake for 10 minutes or until edges begin to turn golden brown
