Here’s the latest Caveman Cookie flavor!

What makes Caveman Cookies superior to regular run-of-the-mill cookies? Hmmmmm, let’s see…

  • Caveman cookies are gluten, dairy, soy, grain and cane-sugar F.R.E.E. Woop woop!
  • Caveman cookies don’t taste healthy. In fact, this weekend the neighbor kids ate a whole plate and then asked for more.
  • Caveman cookies provide real, usable energy to power your day. So having one of these cookies as a snack is a smart move.
  • Caveman cookies use healthy coconut oil, no nasty trans-fats allowed.
  • Caveman cookie are extremely sturdy. Throw a bag of them in your backpack and go hike that mountain.
  • Caveman cookies now come in two variations! Check out the original (and wildly popular) Caveman Chocolate Chunk Cookie Recipe.

All right, go try these tasty treats for yourself. Just don’t make the mistake of letting the neighbor kids get their hands on ’em.

Here’s what you need for the paleo chocolate chip cookies recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with coconut oil.
  2. Place the raw pecans in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground.

    I am allergic to pecans, can I use walnuts instead.

    Bought her diet regimen and love what I am reading and preparing for. She makes it so easy to follow! 😉

    I’m very excited to start!

    I make these cookies over and over. They are OUTSTANDING and so quick and easy to make. My only question is the nutrition info does not show the SUGAR content. If you could please provide that would be great.
    Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe. That’s what I look for, healthy recipes that are quick and easy! Have also passed this recipe to many friends …they all love the samples I’ve provided as a taste test!

    To make these even quicker to make use a ONE TBSP. Cookie Scoop which releases the batter quickly onto the cookie sheet. One batch is not enough, I always double the recipe. Love them! THANKS DIANA!!!

    A bit dry but still good. They lacked buttery flavor since no butter is in the recipe. The pecans didn’t mimic the buttery flavor as far as I could tell. Easy to make but I would double the recipe next time.

    I could not believe how good these were, for a Paleo treat. My husband and children love them and I immediately pasted the link to my facebook page.
    I told them 10/10!

    They taste like oatmeal cookies and the texture is like one!
