Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies


12. August 2014 by swissfitchick

Don’t worry. I am not going to post ONLY Paleo recipes in the future. But sometimes I will. Ok with that? Well, I will do it anyway. Seriously – Paleo YES, but not ALL the time. Agreed? Tks.

I wasn’t even intending to post a recipe at all, but after the major kitchen fail on Saturday, I HAD to have a success. And these are by no means a fail.


I did get the idea for this recipe from somewhere on the Internet – and of course totally forgot where. So if someone recognizes parts of her/his recipe here – credit goes to you.


I delivered these on Sunday to the CrossFit Box and the very first approvement was measured by means of  Ramon, the boss himself together with his Mom. I’d say the issuing of this blessing is a sign of success.


Even better – I made another batch on Monday, which turned out even BETTER . One of the girl-coaches was the lucky one who got to try them still WARM with a spoonful of homemade almond butter on top which I brought along as well. Not that I tried this combo at home or anything (*cough*, about 6547367438 times, *coughcough*). With raw cookies, half-baked cookies (c’mon, I had to test if they need to bake a little longer or not), right-out-of-the-oven cookies and cooled down cookies. I might have felt a little sick by the end of the day.

My favorite part of these cookies are the soft consistency on the inside. I swear, if you warm it up a few seconds in the microwave before you eat it, you will die and go to food heaven. Minus the dying part, cause we don’t want that. But we want to be in Food Heaven, right? Or Cookie Heaven. With Nutbutter Clouds.



Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies (25-30 cookies)


30 pitted dates

3 eggs

3 eggwhites

3 heaped tbsp coconut oil

2 tsp ground vanilla

1 tsp salt

50g almond flour

50g coconut flour

1/2 package (8g) baking powder

120g Chocolate Chips


Preheat oven to 180°C.

Place dates, eggs and eggwhites in a bowl.

Mix with a Hand Blender or Food Processor (don’t laugh. My phase of dolefulness cause of the loss of Ninja is still going strong)

Stir in Vanilla, Flours and Salt.

Fold in Chocolate Chips.

Spoon on a parchement paper and bake for 15-20 minutes.

The baking time depends on the size of the cookies. The smaller, the shorter. Mine were huge (naturally), so I baked them for at least 15 minutes.

Just make sure they stay soft!

And yes, I ate one third of raw cookie dough. If you make it through without, then please send me a tutorial on how to keep a certifiably sane mindest around cookie dough.

Did you ever bake with dates? 

What’s the noise you make when you eat a warm cookie with Chocolate Almond Spread on top? 

Do you think eating raw cookie dough at the age of 36 is inappropriate?

    If this is the kind of dough I can smash and play with my hands I am getting my hands all over this recipe.

  2. How much chocolate chips should we use?
    Cookie dough at ALL ages is 100% appropriate 🙂 you’ve made me hungry – time to get out of bed in search of breakfast I believe!
    And loving the paleo recipes – my tummy loves them even more 😉

  3. Eating raw cookie dough is never appropriate! The texture of these cookies looks fantastic Lucie…aaaand now I need a cookie in my life!

    I’m adding a pinch of coffee to this…

  9. I make bedroom-only appropriate noises when I eat warm cookies, and I think you know how I feel about raw cookie dough 😯 As long as it doesn’t have any eggs, I’m all for it! Otherwise I probably have to leave that enjoyment to the people who are braver than I am. And now I want cookies…

  10. why would it be inappropriate?!?! EAT ALL THE COOKIES TILL YA DROP!

  11. I want to be in cookie heaven with nut butter clouds.

    Confession: sometimes I make cookies just so I can eat the dough. Mmm, it’s my favorite part.

  12. […] I am not a huge snacking person, so I don’t really prep them. If I still need something, I grab a Questbar at the CrossFit Box, shovel in a handful of nuts and a fruit or snack from something I baked on the weekend.  […]

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. ‚'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
