- 20g chocolate/vanilla protein powder (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients excluding the chocolate.
- Place a small saucepan on low heat and add the coconut oil and honey. Stir until the mixture had melted and combined (do not let the coconut oil heat up too much).
- Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients, add the egg and combine.
- Pour in small amounts of the milk whilst stirring continuously until you get the consistency of cookie dough.
- Add in the chocolate chunks until they are evenly distributed. throughout the mixture.
- Put some baking paper on a tray and roll up teaspoon amounts of the dough into balls. Place your dough balls on the baking tray and flatten them.

- Once cooked, remove your cookies from the oven, allow them to cool and enjoy 🙂
These delicious Paleo Choc Chip Cookies are all thanks to our Bake Off Winner Lauren who gifted us with this recipe.
They’re gluten-free since they use almond and coconut flour in place of wheat flour. They’re also refined sugar-free since they use coconut sugar and honey.
If you want a real protein hit with these cookies, then you’ll appreciate the optional add-in of protein powder. Vanilla or chocolate flavour goes particularly well with the choc chip cookies.
<Edit> When this post was originally published, the recipe used Loving Earth chocolate. Unfortunately, this is no longer available in Ireland. I recommend using Ombar chocolate instead – it’s divine.
If these cookies aren’t enough to satisfy your cookie needs, then how about trying these?

Almonds are a good source of minerals such as magnesium, copper, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and iron, and also B vitamins and vitamin E. They are also a good source of healthy fats, protein and fibre.
