I made these tonight and they came out fantastically! I used splenda and i’m about to be using Eryithrol (i know i spelled that totally wrong) anywho! I made my mom love these cookies as well and she’s not a fan of dark chocolate! i used an 85% dark chocolate lindt bar it was delicious! thank you so much for a wonderful recipe i will be making for ever!
With high amounts of heart-healthy omega-3’s, fish is a great form of protein to regularly include in a paleo diet. Select wild-caught fish to avoid ingesting the harmful chemicals that farmed fish are regularly fed. Both low-fat, white varieties of fish are considered paleo as well as high-fat fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel and should both be included to satisfy your daily protein and fat requirements.
Cooking and consuming seaweeds can be intimidating because they can seem quite bland, tough or bitter at first glance. With the proper seasonings and cooking though, they can become a real treat. In the following snack, nori sheets are simply rubbed with coconut oil, seasoned with sea salt and a small amount of sesame oil, then roasted very briefly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urGzfAW70PY
Hi Steve, coconut flour absolutely will not work here because it’s 3x more absorbent than almond flour. You only want to use coconut flour in recipes that call for it because it performs so uniquely. If you had to use coconut flour, you would want to use 1/3 of the amount, but I would recommend using my coconut flour chocolate chip cookies instead, which have been formulated specifically to use that kind of flour.
First of all, these cookies look out of control good. I love the craters of chocolate. As much as I want to take a shortcut most times, I’ve really taken to making the effort to chop up chunks of chocolate for cookies, too. Now..big congrats on wrapping up college! It was a pleasure to read about your last 4 years’ experience. And I’m so glad this blog gave you a creative outlet. You have obviously managed to do so much, so admirably well! Way to go!
I believe in parchment paper. It’s a DREAM for clean up and prevents burning. I hardly ever bake without it, and these ginger cookies are no exception. Some ginger cookies have a tendency to scorch on the bottom, and I’ve found that a light-colored baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or a silicone baking mat) is a fail proof plan for perfectly baked ginger cookies. (I think even Ina would approve.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBt-yRHqajM
wonderful recipe! The only change was I subbed 1/3 c of splenda brown sugar baking blend for 1/3 of the swerve. (since I didn’t have molasses) They have a great taste and texture. my 14 yr old daughter that is doing Low carb with me loved them! I used sugar free mini chocolate chips from our local Amish Store. I plan to explore your other recipes as well. thanks!
I’m sorry to hear these didn’t work out for you. I’m not sure what you mean by “the flour never became anything but crumbled powder.” Were you making your own almond flour, and the ground almonds didn’t become fluffy enough? Or do you mean that there wasn’t enough moisture for the cookies to hold together? I’ve made these cookies many times, and this ratio of maple syrup and coconut oil (or butter) has always produced a delicious result. You can always add additional coconut oil or maple syrup if the cookie dough doesn’t look like it will hold together. I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas, regardless!
I just got to know about this paleo diet from one of my friend. I have gained some 6-7kgs in 2.5 months that’s because i fractured my leg and no workouts. Now i’m seriously trying to reduce my weight by dieting and excising, but i have vitamin D deficiency and end up getting sprain on my neck or low back while excising . Could you please suggest me the diet that i should be taking.
I’m back with another copy-cat recipe. I didn’t realize I was on a roll with them until I was editing these pictures and got thinking about the Paleo Brownie Brittle Bark and the Paleo Samoa Cookie Bars. <—- check them out if you haven’t already! These cookies are inspired by the peanut butter cookie with the peanut butter filling. I used almond butter instead, of course, and they came out so good. It’s kind of crazy how much they taste like peanut butter cookies. I do realize it’s a little ironic the my almond butter cookies are shaped like a peanut 😉 You don’t have to make them peanut shape if you don’t want. I’m sure they would work great as circle cookies as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUvRMTnEC5M
I’ve made these numerous times now after a friend recommended them, and they are fantastic!! I wouldn’t say they’re a healthy substitute to normal/traditional chocolate chip cookies because they’re not quite the same. Rather, I’d say these are in a different category: much more moist, rich with hints of coconut that do not overpower the cookie, and an excellent satiation for the carb- and sugar-wary sweet tooth. Be sure to at least double the recipe because 12 cookies will NOT be enough!
Place the chocolate shards into a glass mixing bowl. You have two options for melting the chocolate: use a double boiler or a microwave. Most folks don’t own a double boiler, but you can make your own by grabbing a metal or glass bowl that fits snugly in a medium saucepan. Fill the saucepan with about two inches of water and bring it to a simmer. Place the bowl on top of the saucepan, making sure that the water never touches the bottom of the bowl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=631-s67CsyU
Don’t settle for buying Fruit Roll-Ups when you can make your own version at home, without all of the chemicals and preservatives. These leathery lookalikes deliver all the flavor you could ask from a fruit snack, because they’re really made from fruit. Apples and strawberries to be exact, and there’s even a grapefruit added for good measure. The recipe ends up making 10 strips, which should be enough to get you through the week. It’s a bit of a novelty, and a delicious way to get some vitamins and nutrients into your body.
I had baked these bad boys early Sunday morning just to double check the recipe for the 10th time before this post goes up (no joke). While mixing the dough, I realized I’ve baked these cookies more than anything else in the past two months (the paleo chocolate banana bread was a close second). Even though I’m not paleo or necessarily grain free, I love making paleo treats because they actually fill me up, don’t need as much sugar as your typical dessert and tend to be lower in carbs. Winning in all categories right there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHkBH4yg0Co
Alcohol is a no-no if you are strict paleo. Beer is made from grains, and liquor also contains traces of gluten. But, good news for cider-lovers: most hard ciders are gluten-free, so they are allowed. Check the label to be sure. Red wine is more accepted in the paleo community because it contains the antioxidant resveratrol, but sorry chardonnay lovers, white wine is technically not allowed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrlFu0Lsqbc
