These Paleo Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies are seriously chocolatey and gooey. Pair these easy, kid-friendly Paleo cookies with a glass of coconut or nut milk and you will be in dessert heaven.
So stoked to have my friend Erin from Pure and Simple Nourishment over! Guests who bring cookies are generally my favourites, so I am biased, but really, Erin is awesome! We are totally on the same page about healthy eating and that it’s not about depriving yourself of all those goodies you love. Would you look at these Paleo Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies? So chocolatey! I feel like I need to make a double-batch asap!
Hi 40 Aprons readers! I am so thrilled to be here guest posting while Cheryl is busy taking care of herself and her new little girl. I have admired Cheryl’s work for quite some time now and over this past year I have been lucky enough to get to know her as she has become a bit of a blogging mentor for me. I totally understand why so many of you love her work and support her. Not only does she create amazing, family-friendly recipes but she is also one of the nicest and most generous humans I have ever met. So when she reached out asking for guest posts so that she could go on a bit of a maternity leave I jumped at the opportunity to help.
For those of you who don’t know me (which is probably most of you), my name is Erin Carter. I run a paleo food and health and wellness blog called Pure and Simple Nourishment. I am also an MD, specializing in both internal medicine and rheumatology. Through my own health struggles, I came to realize the healing power of eating real, unprocessed foods and my blog is a place where I share real food recipes, health information, and healthy living tips. I truly believe that food has the power to not only cause disease but also to prevent and even heal disease. I would be thrilled if you visited me over on Pure and Simple Nourishment. I would love to help you get started on your own healing journey!
I knew when Cheryl asked me for a guest post that I needed to come up with an extra special recipe for you guys. As loyal 40 Aprons readers you are used to mouth-watering, delicious real food recipes and I didn’t want to let you down. It took a bit of trial and error but the Paleo Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies that I created for you are pretty darn delicious if I do say so myself. I even tested the recipe out on my non-paleo eating friends to see what they would think and even they could not get enough. It took just minutes before the entire batch was gone. Needless to say, I have started making double batches of these Paleo Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies whenever I make them now.
For me, healthy eating is all about balance. I know there are some healthy eating bloggers out there who would shame you for eating a cookie or indulging in something sweet but what would life be without a little treat now and then? Boring that’s what! In order to maintain a healthy lifestyle in the long term I think it’s important to not be too restrictive. So while you may be avoiding ingredients like grains, dairy and processed sugars for health reasons, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get to enjoy a freshly baked cookie now and again. In my books, there is almost nothing that tastes better than a still warm, gooey cookie straight from the oven. Pair these Paleo Double Chocolate Fudge Cookies with a glass of coconut or nut milk and you will be in dessert heaven.
Happy eating, friends!
- Preheat your oven to 350F.
- Add all the ingredients, except the chocolate chips, to your standing mixer and blend on low until smooth.
- Stir in the chocolate chips by hand with a spoon.
- Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Form the dough into 1.5" balls, using your hands and place them on the cookie sheet – TIP: Wet your hands every 2-3 cookies to make the dough easier to work with.
- Place the cookie sheets in the oven and bake for 8-9 minutes (until the bottoms of the cookies are golden - you don't want to overcook these).
- Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes.
- Serve and enjoy!
