We have been to several family events lately where the dessert tables were filled with “there’s-no way-we’re-eating-that-grain-filled, sugar-filled-junk ” items. All this Paleo determination has made me pretty hungry for some paleo-friendly DESSERT!
Tonight I decided to come home and make a late-night batch of chocolate chip cookies. I found the recipe on one of my favorite blogs, “The Food Lover’s Primal Palate.” I could not make these fast enough… it was just so exciting!
As I posted on Facebook, this was the first time I had made chocolate chip cookies without starting with a stick of butter and a TON of sugar. It felt a little weird, and I wondered if they could really be as delicious as I hoped.
As the smell of fresh-baked cookies filled my tiny apartment, my doubts flew out the window, and I had to fight the urge to open the oven and watch them rise.
These cookies definitely surpassed my expectations. They are amazing, melt-in-your-mouth delicious!
Keep in mind, maple syrup and chocolate chips are not technically Paleo-approved (and certainly not Whole30-approved!), so these are definitely a cheat/treat that should not be enjoyed every day. But pure maple syrup and dark chocolate chips are a much better option than the grain-and-sugar-filled cookies I used to make.
Give these a try, and let me know if they aren’t the best cookies you’ve ever eaten. The fact that you can eat them without a guilty conscience just makes them more amazing.
