Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mini Fudge (2)The other night, I dreamed I was baking cookies.

Except these weren’t your typical cookies.

They were actually teeny tiny – as in miniature versions of the real thing.

And I was baking them in a teeny tiny, miniature oven, in a teeny tiny kitchen.

Because of the limited space, I kept knocking things over and making quite a mess, as you can imagine.

(Regular size people don’t fit real well in dollhouses).

Dreams are funny, this way, aren’t they?

And it’s not like I normally dream about cookies – or food.

I don’t!

However, I do collect miniatures, like what you see pictured here.

They look like the real thing, don’t they?

Since we’re on the subject of cookies, I decided it was time to share another cookie recipe.

This fabulous Chocolate Chip Cookie is my current favorite.

In fact, they are so good, the entire batch usually disappears within a couple of days.

Another great thing about these cookies is the fact they suitable for a Paleo diet – meaning they are grain free!

Go ahead – try them.

You won’t be disappointed.


Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adapted from a Recipe by Janelle Holden


1 cup Walnuts

1 cup Pecans

2 Tbsp ground Chia Seeds (or 1 Egg)

½ tsp Baking Soda

¼ Sea Salt

1 tsp Cinnamon

2 Tbsp melted Coconut Oil

3 Tbsp Maple Syrup, Honey or Agave

1 tsp Vanilla

½ cup raw Cacao Nibs (or Enjoy Life Foods Chocolate Chips)


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Combine the nuts in the bowl of a food processor, and grind as fine as possible. Add the chia seeds, baking soda, sea salt and cinnamon.

Add the coconut oil, syrup and vanilla and mix to combine – or stir well, if preparing by hand.

Add the cacao nibs or chocolate chips. The dough will be a bit on the soft side. “Squeeze” the dough together in your hand, to form a ball and place on a prepared cookie sheet. (I like using Silpat liners!)

Bake for 10 -15 minutes, until lightly browned.

Bet you can’t eat just one!
