The Best Paleo Coconut Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are my favorite paleo, low GI, gluten-free cookies. Having grown up in a bakery and restaurant, my 16-year-old son is super picky when it comes to recipe remakes and healthier treats — and these have his stamp of approval. They are soft and chewy and make an excellent mock oatmeal cookie with the addition of cinnamon and raisins in place of the chocolate chips.

Recipe Notes

There was no option in the nutrition analysis for sugar-free chocolate chips, so the nutrition label for this recipe is assuming that you use regular mini, dark chocolate chips.

*If you are eating paleo or wanting no refined sugar at all, use the Know Better Foods chocolate chips or Lily's Chocolate chips. Lily's are now available at Stop & Shop, Whole Foods and many other stores as well as on my Amazon Page.
