Chocolate chip Cookie Dough (paleo, AIP)

Cookie Dough Bites || Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough(Paleo, AIP, Keto, Coconut free)

AIP cookie dough bites   Blame it on the show!  So I was watching a British reality show on Netflix ‘The Million Pound Menu’ where small street food stall owners compete against each other to get potential investors to invest big money in their business.  The episode I was watching had two young women trying to sell ‘cookie dough’ in cute cups with lots of fancy toppings!  I don’t know what about those cookie dough cups caused my cravings but whoa I was hit hard!

The cravings were also probably intensified because it was my birthday that day and I felt like I wanted a special treat. Correction- I felt like I deserved a special treat. C’mon this gal has been working her ass off these past few weeks – growing my nutrition consulting business, working part time as a consultant and writing an AIP cookbook! She clearly deserved some ‘cookie’ love!  Funny thing is that I fancy myself more of a cake person than a cookie person. until now that is.

AIP CookieBut anyways the craving attack was so bad that I pretty much couldn’t even wait for the show to be over. I looked into my pantry to survey what I had, hatched a crude recipe in my mind and began the work. I didn’t even check to see if there were any other AIP cookie dough recipes! Exactly 10 mins later, I was biting into this delicious cookie dough that did not need any baking! It tasted divine just as is!  As luck would have it, I had just made a small batch of my ‘AIP chocolate’ too just a couple days ago so I pulled that out, chopped it into tiny chocolate chips and then I had ‘chocolate chip cookie dough’. So freaking delicious and so freaking easy to make!

OK in case you need any further assurance of how good this is…my husband and I finished the first batch within a couple hours. And we both generally stay away from sweets. LOL. And then the very next day I made a second batch! 🙂

Enough talking. Let’s get you this recipe so you can go eat this. And thank me. Yes, yes you are sure to thank me! I also made a video with step by step instructions:

What do you need for this recipe?

  • Tiger nut flour: I have only recently started using tiger nut flour and I am loving it! In this recipe, it provides a nutty richness that other AIP flours couldn’t provide.  For a ‘non AIP’ Paleo or for a keto version, you can use almond flour.
  • Collagen peptides act as a binder in this recipe and they are also so nourishing for your body!
  • This recipe is also coconut free which is great for those with coconut allergies.
  • I have used both palm shortening and coconut oil for the fat and both of them work well in this recipe.
  • Maple syrup is the sweetener I like to use in this recipe as it has a nice flavor too. For a keto version, you can use monk fruit or any other appropriate sweetener.
  • Vanilla extract is what I used although you could use vanilla powder as well. For AIP version, make sure whatever you use is AIP compliant – meaning no added sugar or alcohol.
  • For making homemade chocolate or carob chips, follow my recipe for ‘AIP chocolate‘ and chop that into chocolate chunks. Or you can also follow this recipe by Healing family Eats. You can also use Enjoy Life brand dairy free chocolate chips although it does have cane sugar.

  1. Greetings! These sound perfect the way they are. Do you know how the dough would turn out if you bake them into cookies? Thank you!

    • Hi Anne, I have actually not tried baking them. My guess is they should bake alright if you bake them at 350 F for about 8-10 mins based on other cookie recipes I have tried. Personally, i love them as is! But if you try baking them, do lmk how they turn out 🙂

  2. Love these, they are hard to stop eating! I made the version with tigernut flour although I am sure almond flour would be delicious, too. So quick and simple to make when you are craving a “treat”.

    • Exactly right? Cannot stop eating them! I have been making them every week now since my husband just loves them too and it has become his fave snack! Thanks for your comment!
