Who wants paleo cookies?! Me, me, ME! These are the best paleo chocolate chip cookies and are absolutely AMAZING. It just takes a few minutes to whip up a batch of paleo almond flour chocolate chip cookies and I can’t figure out if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. See, once I make this paleo chocolate chip cookie recipe, the entire family prefers them over “actual food”. 😉 They get crumbled over ice cream, dunked into almond milk, and sandwiched with coconut milk ice cream. I just LOVE these chewy paleo chocolate chip cookies!
Sometimes you can tell when a cookie is gluten-free because they are dry and crumbly, but not with these! They are soft and chewy, and perfectly sweet.

How To Make Paleo Cookies With Chocolate Chips
There are 4 easy-to-follow steps for how to make paleo chocolate chip cookies:
- Mix the dough together in a bowl. You’ll combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut oil, honey, vanilla, baking powder, sea salt…and of course, paleo chocolate chips. Then chill the dough for 15 minutes.
- Form the cookies on a baking sheet. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper, then add paleo cookie dough by scooping it and placing it in little mounds. Slightly flatten the top of the cookie.
- Bake the cookies. They should be soft when you remove them from the oven.
- Let them rest on a cooling rack so they can cool and set up.
Chewy Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies Variations
Sometimes it’s nice to take one versatile recipe and make it repeatedly using different ingredients each time. Here are some ideas to try when you are making this gluten-free, dairy-free cookies recipe.
- Almond Butter – It’s creamy and adds extra flavor and nutrition to the easy paleo cookies.
- Nuts – Add in some crushed pecans or walnuts to this paleo cookie recipe. They add a nice crunch.

Are Chocolate Chips Paleo?
Most chocolate chips aren’t paleo because they usually contain artificial ingredients, sugar, soy, and in some cases even grains.
When you are making paleo almond flour chocolate chip cookies, you need to only use chocolate chips that are paleo.
How Do You Store Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies?
Store the paleo almond flour chocolate chip cookies in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
These grain-free chocolate chip cookies will last up to 1 week in the fridge. You can store them on the counter or in the pantry, but they will only last around 24 hours.
Can You Freeze This Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe?
Yes, you can freeze this paleo chocolate chip cookie recipe. You can wrap them if you want to, but mine are usually fine in a freezer bag. It’s nice to freeze a few batches of chewy paleo chocolate chip cookies and grab out what you need for a quick snack.
To thaw the paleo almond flour chocolate chip cookies, just place them on the counter, in your lunch box, or in the fridge until they are defrosted. If you want them to be a little warm, you can toss them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.

Close enough to satisfy a sugar craving. I used a combo of almond and coconut flour and also added an egg. So a couple of tweaks – but turned out nicely.
Thank you so much. The firend our delicious! Even my husband had two!!!
These truly are the best cookies! My non paleo eating family asked for then every week! I have also shared with non paleo friends. They are so good! Thanks

These cookies are amazing!! I love the texture from the almond flour!
I loved these paleo-ize chocolate chip cookies. You’ve made it so easy, and super tasty. Thank you!
So lovely your page.
Can I sub almond meal for oat flour or half oat flour plus half rice flour?
Because here in Brazil almond products are really expensive.
Tapioca starch is easy so, that is my question
Thanks for sharing those amazing recipes.
Hi Fernando! I haven’t tried this recipe with either of those but of the two I would go with oat flour not rice flour. Let me know if you try it!
We made these last night at midnight!
Then we made a double batch this morning adding cinnamon and rasins to a half! What can we say: AMAZING as any recipe we tried here!
Yay! I’m so glad you enjoyed them!
These are awesome, I can never resist a good chocolate chip cookie!
These were amazing! Love that they’re both paleo and vegan 😀 I can make them for my in-laws!
