Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies – So good, you won’t even miss the naughty ingredients!
It has begun.
We’ve had our cake. We’ve had an ungodly amount of Christmas cookies and fudge. We’ve had more cocktails in the last two weeks than we normally have in six months. We’ve had cheese, sausage, and carbs of all varieties.
And now we feel tired and bloated.
It’s time for a dietary overhaul.
One thing I like to do each January is to put my family on a Paleo Cleanse to detox from all the holiday eating.
The paleo diet has picked up popularity over the last few years, because it encourages clean eating, fresh local ingredients, and healthy portions. (Paleo Dieters avoid grains, legumes, dairy, and all processed foods.)
We don’t eat like this all year, mind you, because honestly I’m just not that disciplined. There are certain foods I love and won’t give up, feeling they are fine to enjoy in moderation.
However, when we need a detox to get our bodies and habits back on track, a paleo cleanse works like magic. We focus on eating lean organic protein, nuts, some fruit, and lots of veggies.
The trick is, it’s hard to go cold-turkey on any diet.
And for some people (ok… ME) a little treat here and there can make a healthy eating plan seem much more bearable.
So today I’m sharing my easy recipe for Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies are moist and tender with little morsels of chocolate speckled throughout, to satisfy any cookie craving! Plus, they are free of grains, dairy, and processed ingredients.
Although strict paleo eaters avoid sugar and chocolate of all kinds, I’ve been told by several trusted paleo sources that unprocessed palm sugar and dark chocolate can be enjoyed on a paleo eating plan, in moderation, without undoing all the good you’ve worked toward.
These Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies are here to help you get out of the rut of naughty holiday eating, and into clean healthy habits. One step at a time.
Enjoy a guilt-free cookie. Then stick to your New Years Resolution. A month from now, you’ll be so glad you did!
