Paleo Cookie Dough
You guys are not going to believe how amazing these Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites are! These paleo cookie dough bites are so easy to make and they taste like regular gluten free cookie dough. This flourless cookie dough not only is amazingly delicious, it’s healthy as well.

I’ve listed some information below on how to make these paleo chocolate chip cookie dough bites. Also, I have a video for those of you that are visual like me. This recipe for gluten free cookie dough is super simple to make and it only uses minimal ingredients.
Gluten Free Cookie Dough
I could eat gluten free cookie dough by the bowl-full. I actually found myself hoarding these paleo chocolate chip cookie dough bites from the rest of my family. We have a separate small fridge for drinks, and I hid a container of these in the back so I could keep them all to myself. I’m not even joking
It was terrible, but I feel no guilt. Well, other than the fact that I had to hit the gym twice as much.
These gluten free cookie dough bites may be healthy but the calories still add up when you eat the whole batch. So don’t eat the whole batch at once. Either share them, or freeze some. I’ve frozen them into smaller balls and mixed them in with dairy-free ice cream for homemade cookie dough ice cream. Delish!
What other oil can I use in paleo chocolate chip cookie dough bites
Coconut oil works best in this gluten free cookie dough since it solidifies nicely. If you can’t have coconut, you can use avocado oil. While avocado oil doesn’t solidify easily it does have a mild flavor that works well with the rest of the ingredients. Start with 3 tablespoons of oil and add in the 4th if needed.
Working with Almond Flour
One thing to note about using almond flour in this almond flour cookie dough recipe is that it is NOT a 1-to-1 for gluten-free flour. It has a lot more protien and fat, and less starch, so it reacts differently in recipes. It’s best stored in the refrigerator or freezer if you’re not going to use it up in a week or two.
Always bring Almond meal or flour to room temperature before baking with it. If you use it cold, it’ll absorb more of the liquid and your batter will be thicker than it should be. And remember, because it’s made from almonds, it can go rancid, so keep track of when you opened the bag.
