Paleo Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing like a paleo chocolate chip cookie to get you through a good day, a bad day, a Sunday, a hump day… you get where I’m going with this. They are good any day of the week. I added the adaptogen Maca, some super special cacao-honey, and a few natural sprinkles because #Yolo, but you can take it down a notch and skip the adaptogen if you want, and plain honey is an easy substitute for the cacao-honey.

The real start of the show here is tahini - it’s what makes these so chewy and good. And then of course the cacao powder, which I’m such a huge fan of. You can use cocoa powder, but I’ll always recommend cacao if you can swing it. It’s richer, better for you, and the chocolate flavor in it’s natural form just can’t be beat.

Paleo Double Chocolate Chip Cookies


*You could also add 1/3 cup raw honey if you don't have the superfood honey. Sub the honey for maple syrup to make this recipe vegan. 

P.S. Did you know Tahini is just sesame seed butter? Mind blown! So yeah, it's really good in this cookie recipe, even if you originally thought Tahini was only good for hummus. Trust me on this one.


Preheat oven to 325*F 

Whisk the tahini, melted coconut oil, honey, superfood honey, egg, and vanilla until smooth.

In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together, then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well. 

Stir in the chocolate chips. Use a spoon or cookie scoop to drop dough into balls. Flatten gently with a fork and bake for 10-12 minutes. Add natural sprinkles before baking if you desire! 

Allow the cookies to cool on a wire racks before storing in an airtight container up to 4 days in the refrigerator, or freeze for up to one month. (That is if you don't eat them all the first night. They really are that good.) Try them with a glass of homemade cashew milk. Enjoy!
