Paleo Cookies!! Yet another Paleo Cookie recipe! There was an overwhelming “yes please” for another paleo chocolate chip cookie a couple months ago. We got the same reaction over on the ol’ Instagram-averse when we asked about a Paleo Snickerdoodle recipe.
This is not a surprise! We all have an inner “cookie monster” right! Especially for Paleo Cookies! These were initially requested by the same sweet Instagram friend that reached out a few years ago for a “yeast free pretzel” recipe for her daughter. Which we happily came up with, such a tender request from a mom needing an option for her daughter.
These are easy paleo cookies to whip up and we don’t blame you if you feel the need to make a double batch. They also freeze well, so there’s no reason NOT to make a bunch! Why not make a mess once and have double the amount of goodies in the freezer for spontaneous enjoyment! We encourage this behavior!
Let’s talk subs m’kay? You can probably sub an organic vegetable shortening for the grass fed butter. Haven’t tested it, but feel like it is doable. I wouldn’t recommend subbing out the maple sugar for coconut sugar in this recipe for a couple of reasons. One, the texture and flavor of the cookie would change considerably. Rolling the cookie dough ball in a combo of anything other than “maple sugar & cinnamon” will result in a much darker coating. You be you though and have a kitchen adventure if you choose!
