I haven’t baked since I moved to the suburbs 6 months ago. I would have thought that moving out here would make me bake more, but apparently not! Last weekend, we were craving something sweet but are trying to stick to a Paleo diet as much as possible so I searched online for the perfect paleo cookie recipe.
I’m a nut-butter freak so when I found these incredibly easy-to-make peanut butter chocolate chip cookies by the Detoxinista that are Paleo-friendly, I decided to give them a whirl.
The outcome was magical. I did not expect them to actually taste like peanut butter cookies given the simple ingredient list but they did!
Note: I’ve since learned that peanuts aren’t technically Paleo (depends who you ask!). Just swap in almond or cashew butter for peanuts if you want to make them truly Paleo.
– 1 cup creamy peanut butter
– 1/3 cup honey
– 1 egg
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
– 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used a broken up chocolate bar because that’s all I had!)
This recipe takes 3 steps. It could not be easier! Preheat your oven to 350. Mix the first 5 ingredients together in a bowl until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper using a tablespoon. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let the cookies set for about 10 minutes before eating them. Enjoy!
We may have eaten the entire batch in one day which kind of goes against the whole point of trying to be healthy but they’re just so darn good!
