Welcome to my messy, joyful, and perfectly imperfect version of motherhood. I’m a nutritional therapy practitioner and certified pre & postnatal coach. I’m here to help you move through motherhood with ease!
Challenge: make a dairy-free, nut-free and grain-free cookie that you actually want to eat. Well, it was no easy task, but I did it. And not to toot my own horn, but these are the best paleo chocolate chip cookies. In fact, you can strike paleo from the descriptor. These are just hands down the BEST chocolate chip cookies. Loaded with dark chocolate chunks and super creamy tahini, these cookies come together without any of the traditional nut-based or grain-based flours.
Tahini is made from ground sesame seeds, which are a total prenatal superfood. Sesame seeds are a fantastic source of b vitamins, magnesium, and essential fatty acids. In fact sesame seeds are 60% fat, which is why these paleo chocolate chip cookies are so luxurious even without butter. Check out all the health benefits of tahini in this fantastic article from Dr. Axe.
Honey adds the sweetness needed in a chocolate chip cookie without overpowering! Honey is also the secret to making chewy cookies rather than cake-y cookies. The more you know! I fold in a bit of flaked coconut for more texture. Omit if you’re a purist 🙂 I prefer to use Enjoy Life Mega Chunk Chocolate Chips in these cookies because they are GIANT chocolate chips and they are allergen-free (and again, still tasty!) You can find them at most health food stores, on thrive market or on amazon.
Use your food processor when making this cookie dough to ensure everything blends together well. Because of the high fat content, the dough may seem oily after its combined. Pop it in the fridge for 20 minutes to help solidify these fatty acids. Don’t be alarmed if your dough looks sticky and extra oily! I promise the cookies won’t be greasy.
Dunk these tasty cookies in a glass of coconut milk or pop them in your school lunch!
