PALEO DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
(GRAIN FREE, GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, PALEO)
My favorite kind of dessert is one that is loaded with chocolate. In my world, the more chocolate, the merrier. These double chocolate cookies have a chocolate base and then are studded with dark chocolate chips. There is plenty of chocolate in every single bite. They have crispy chewy edges and a warm soft center – the best of both worlds! These double chocolate cookies definitely aren’t for the faint of heart. They’re rich, decadent, and filled with an intense chocolate flavor. I’ve never been one to shy away from my love of dark chocolate and well, these cookies showcase that perfectly.
To make these cookies, we will first mix together the ghee, coconut oil and coconut sugar. Think of this as the mixing “sugar and butter” phase. Once that’s mixed, simply add in the remaining ingredients and carefully fold in the chocolate chips. After everything is combined, I like to refrigerate my dough for best results. This allows the ingredients to fully mix together and usually lends to a sturdier cookie. I have tested this recipe with refrigerating the dough and without. Both produce a delicious tasting cookie, but the refrigerated dough will lead to a cookie that holds together better. I also love sprinkling some sea salt on top of each cookie before baking but this is a completely optional step. Sea salt and chocolate is a decadent combo! These bake for about 9-11 minutes but I like to keep an eye on them so they don’t overcook. The edges will appear a bit crispy but you want the middle to seem just a tad underdone. They will firm up a bit as they cool down.
My favorite way to store and eat them is straight out of the freezer. There’s something so refreshing about super cold dark chocolate. They can be stored at room temperature in a sealed container for 3-4 days (if they last that long!). They can also be stored covered in the fridge for 4-5 days. If you’re looking for one showstopper of a cookie, I’ve got you covered. I promise nobody will complain that these are lacking in flavor!
