Paleo Tollhouse Cookies

I was once the queen of Nestlé Tollhouse cookie making. My brothers friends used to beg for me to make them cookies. I was known for making the best homemade chocolate chip cookies around. Fast forward a few years and my attempts at paleo chocolate chip cookies were falling flat. The texture was all wrong. I've now developed the most perfect crisp and chewy Tollhouse cookie! I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!

Paleo Tollhouse Cookies

2/3 cup ghee or grassfed butter (kerrygold is my brand of choice), room temp
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp coconut sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 1/2 cup almond flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp arrowroot powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 cup deep dark chocolate chips or pieces

Preheat oven to 350 and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In large mixing bowl combine butter/ghee and sugar and cream together (beat until lightens and is slightly fluffy). Add vanilla and egg. Mix until well combined. Add almond flour, coconut flour and arrowroot. Mix until combined. Add baking soda and sea salt. Mix until combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips (you can add nuts too if you want). Scoop tablespoon size balls onto parchment paper, leaving 2 inches between dough balls. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool on sheets for 2-3 minutes. Then transfer to cooling racks. Serve and enjoy!!- Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone


  1. Can you please tell me what kind of coconut sugar you used?

  2. I use Madhava brand coconut sugar, but I think any brand you have would be good.

  3. This recipe is fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing!

  4. I have made this recipe a couple of times now and it's our FAVORITE. Wow, what a treat. I didn't have the arrowroot the first time, so I just added an extra Tablespoon of coconut flour...they turned out great. The second time, I used the arrowroot. To be honest, since there's an egg, I don't think it needs it. Thank you so much for the perfect almond flour/coconut flour chocolate chip cookie. This recipe is a keeper..

  5. I have made this recipe about 4 times, and the cookies always turn out amazing! I replace the arrowroot powder with a tablespoon of coconut flour and add ½ cup of walnuts. These taste better than non-paleo chocolate chip cookies!

  6. Something went awry when I tried this recipe. I'm noticing that in the instructions it reads"combine ghee, sugar, and cream together" But there is no cream listed in the ingredients. Is there something I'm missing?

    1. "cream" is how you blend it - you cream it together. It's a texture thing, not an ingredient.
