Tasty Paleo alternative to the childhood favourite!


  • 1 cup almond meal, chickpeas or coconut flour ** I used almond meal 
  • 1/8 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil (*update: make sure to measure oil after melting so that youâ??re not inadvertently using too much. This can cause cookies to flatten)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • **For additional sweetness option to add 2 drops of liquid stevia
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate pieces ( unsweetened)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  3. Whisk together wet ingredients in a small bowl.
  4. Add wet to dry and mix together.
  5. Fill a tablespoon measure with batter and press down to form a half-circle. Tap batter out onto baking sheet and lightly press down in the center. *Optional – freeze cookies on baking sheet for about 10 minutes before baking. This helps keep them from spreading.
  6. Bake for 10-11 minutes until bottoms just start to turn brown.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool 3-5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. They will be soft when removed from oven but firm up in a couple of minutes.
