What makes Caveman Cookies superior to regular run-of-the-mill cookies? Hmmmmm, let’s see…
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:
1½ cups Raw Pecans
3 tablespoons coconut flour
½ cup almond flour
2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
½ teaspoon baking soda
⅛ teaspoon sea salt
1 omega-3 egg
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with coconut oil.
Place the raw pecans in a food processor and pulse until coarsely ground.
In a medium bowl combine the ground pecans, coconut flour, almond flour, arrowroot starch, baking soda and salt.
In another medium bowl combine the egg, vanilla, syrup and (cooled) oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix until fully combined. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
Shape the dough into 20 cookies, flattening them slightly onto the greased pan. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden.
Allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
