I’m obsessed with these paleo chocolate cookies! I’ve made them a few times now, and have found that the type of nut butter you use makes all the difference. My favorite one thus far has been the Cinnamon Sun Butter by Crafted House. If you’re a local to South Florida, you can find them at one of the green markets.

- 1 ripe avocado
- ¼ cup of maple syrup
- ½ cup nut butter (your choice)
- ½ cup of cacao powder (I use just a little less than a ½ cup)
- 1 egg or can substitute with chia egg if vegan
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Handful of chocolate chips (I use vegan ones by Pascha Organic at Whole Foods)
- Pre-heat oven to 360 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper & spray with nonstick oil.
- Mix all ingredients into food processor. If you’re looking for an excellent one, I use the Breville Sous Chef.
- Create 5-7 big cookies out of the batter, by using a spatula and a spoon. It’s a little messy, but it works.
- Sprinkle a handful or two of chocolate chips onto the cookies.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes.
- Let it cool for a few minutes. Can store in Fridge for about 5 days or in your freezer for several weeks.
Fiona- always begging. LOL
- For a sweeter taste, choose a nut butter made with sweetener.
- Taste great warm or cold!
- I prefer storing mine in the freezer. It’ll keep longer and doesn’t take long to defrost.
JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
