Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies

Every Monday Nate and I drop his sister off at school and as we get back into the car to head home he says “We go home and make cookies now Mom?”  I can’t very well say no to this request.  He loves making cookies and helping and, oh who am I kidding…he just loves eating chocolate chips and sampling the finished product!

Cookies are a part of childhood.  I remember making cookies with my mom as a kid and I want to indulge this delight as often as possible but we try hard to stick to gluten free so a traditional chocolate chip cookie isn’t in the cards for us.  These decadent chocolate chip brownie cookies fill the gap well however and they’re our ‘go to’, every day cookie recipe.  They’re perfect with a glass of milk (coffee for me,) and simple to make.  These paleo cookies come together really fast and there’s the fun of mashing a banana for your wee helper too.

My paleo brownie cookie recipe is grain and gluten free and naturally sweetened with banana and honey. This recipe will produce a thick batter and a moist cookie.  I store them on the counter because I find they get a bit mushy if you keep them in a zipper bag.  They never last long enough to go stale anyway!  This recipe makes 10 good size cookies or 12 smaller ones.  You could double it easy enough but I just make them every week – they’re best fresh and take hardly any time to make.

  1. These look delish! Can’t wait to try them.

  2. I’m trying them as we speak. I used semi sweet chocolate chips minis and did honey and splenda. I’m trying low carb and gluten free plus wheat free. I have allergies. Eggs too but I can deal with it :) . Thanks I’ll give you updates.

  3. Okay for being flourless brownies I give them a 8 out of 10 only because well its brownies.

  4. Very good, better the next day.

  5. Made these with brown rice flour and they didn’t turn out. I had to add another 1/2 cup of brown rice flour. :(

    • You can’t sub rice flour for coconut flour 1:1 I wouldn’t recommend rice flour – coconut flour gives flavor and a nicer texture.

  6. Will this recipe work with almond flour as a substitute for coconut flour?
    Thanks : )

    • coconut flour is super absorbent so while I bet you could make these with almond flour, you’d need to use more.
