Recipe: Paleo Chocolate Cookies

During the holidays last year my I bought an almond flour cook book for a coworker because I knew she couldn’t eat gluten and was constantly looking for recipes.  In my hunt for recipes this week, I found this recipe on and these cookies look pretty good, where almond flower takes centre stage.  Click the link above for the full write up on Paleo Spirit.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Combine wet ingredients in a small bowl.
  4. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  5. Use a small cookie dough scoop* or form into 1/2 inch balls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. (I used a Silpat.)
  6. Press dough down onto pan to form round disks. (The dough does not automatically melt and spread out as with regular flour.)
  7. Bake 10 minutes. (a little longer if you like a crunchier cookie)
  8. Remove to a wire rack to cool.Makes 30-36 cookies
