The BEST Giant Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies - soft, chewy, gooey, amazing grain-free chocolate chip cookies

I’ve confessed in the past that I’m a complete lush for a good time, which essentially means I like my sugary treats in epic portion sizes.

So here we are, being rebellious with our sugar intake, consenting to our monster appetite for gooey chocolatey thrills.

I combined concepts from my Giant Keto Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies and my Soft, Chewy, Gooey Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies to form these larger than life GIANT Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies.

What we have here are grain-free, refined sugar-free paleo cookies that taste just like the real deal. 

The texture? Perfect. The chewiness? On point. The butter flavor? Through the roof. Should we stop at one? Probably. Are we going to? Not looking good.

Let’s talk about the ingredients! They’re basic! You’re probably familiar, and you may just have all of them on hand already.

Ingredients for Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Grass-Fed Butter: The ingredient that makes a cookie utterly irresistible 😉 In order to keep the cookies paleo-friendly, use grass-fed butter, but if you don’t mind using regular butter, go for it!

Butter serves as the fat, flavor, and goo portion of the recipe. It is what is responsible for that molten chew on the inside. It can easily be replaced with ghee or softened coconut oil for those who are lactose-free or dairy-free. I often find cookies made with coconut oil are equally delicious as those made with butter!

Maple Sugar, Coconut Sugar, or Brown Sugar: The sweetener portion of the recipe. I use maple sugar, which is super easy to find online and at natural food stores but isn’t as easy to find at regular grocery stores. You can also use coconut sugar or regular brown sugar. Brown sugar will mean these cookies are no longer technically “paleo,” but that’s fully acceptable in my book. If we’re making cookies, we’re making cookies. 😉

Egg: One egg helps fluff up the cookies and keep them held together. I try to bring my egg to room temperature before adding it to the cookie dough so that it plays nice with the softened butter and doesn’t cause any clumping.

Vanilla Extract: Providing warmth and richness, a touch of vanilla extract helps add an aromatic yumminess to any cookie. How to describe it in words? Lovely…optional but definitely encouraged.

Almond Flour: The flour portion of the recipe, almond flour is our paleo-friendly grain-free flour. When mixed with all of the other ingredients, almond flour produces a soft and chewy texture with the perfect outer crisp. You’d never guess these cookies are gluten-free, much less grain-free!

Baking Soda & Sea Salt: Leavening and flavor enhancing! Baking soda helps hold the cookies together in one cohesive unit and also generates that crisp you get around the edges. Don’t skip it or you’ll end up with puddles of delicious goo! 

Chocolate Chips: The chocolate portion of the recipe that makes us all swoon! Use your favorite chocolate chips or chop up a chocolate bar. If you want to keep these cookies lower in sugar, you can use sugar-free chocolate chips.

Amazingly soft yet crispy and chewy Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies made with almond flour. Gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and delicious!

How to Make Giant Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Add the butter and sugar to a stand mixer and beat until combined and fluffy (note: you can also use a mixing bowl and an electric hand whisk).

Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl and beat in the egg and vanilla extract. 

Scrape the sides of the bowl again and add the remaining dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Beat on high speed until everything is incorporated and a sticky dough forms. Beat in the chocolate chips.

Use the rubber spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl again to ensure all of the ingredients are mixed together very well. Refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours before baking. You can also refrigerate the dough overnight.

When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Measure out ⅓ cup of the dough and place it on the baking sheet. Repeat for remaining cookie dough (there should be 7 balls of dough total). Note that the dough will spread during the baking process so be sure to leave ample room between balls of dough.

Bake for 11 to 15 minutes, or until the cookies reach your preferred level of done-ness. Chewy cookies will need 10 to 11 minutes on the dot and crispier cookies will require 13 to 15. 

Remove cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes before removing the cookies from the cookie sheet. They will be delicate for the first 10 minutes out of the oven.
