Paleo Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ever wanted the cookie, but without the gluten and sugar?? These soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies are ridiculously easy to make, and are gluten-free and lightly sweetened with coconut sugar. The edges are nice and crispy, and the center is so moist and studded with amazingly delicious sugar-free chocolate chips! Made with only 5 ingredients along with just a few pantry staples!

Homemade Paleo Baking Flour Mix

If you don't have paleo flour, no worries! You can make it at home with a few ingredients you might have at home. Combine these ingredients, and then store in an air-tight container.

Using Coconut Sugar in Cookies

If you don't have coconut sugar, you can swap it out for cane sugar 1:1 for almost any recipe. Or use Monk Fruit. I wouldn't use white sugar because it is highly processed and very unhealthy for you. Coconut sugar is a very good natural paleo sweetener, and it's also lower on the glycemic index than Cane Sugar. Check out my sugar blog post for more info.
