Some paleo goodness for the sweet tooth

For some reason I have been craving something sugary, so I had a look at the MDA blog and sure enough there was a recipe for primal chocolate chip cookies. I made them and I have to say, they are pretty amazing!! No sugar or flour, can't believe it!

Here is the recipe: (I substituted the pecans with almonds because I didn't have any in the pantry)

  • 4 dates, pits removed
  • 1 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut 
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grind dates in the food processor until a paste forms, about 40 seconds. Add walnuts and pecans and blend until very finely chopped, about 35 seconds. Add baking soda and salt and pulse a few more times.

Warm the coconut oil so it is in liquid form. With the food processor running, drizzle it into the batter with the egg and vanilla. Stop mixing as soon as the egg and oil are blended in.
Scrape the batter into a bowl and stir in coconut and chocolate chips by hand. The dough will be sticky and wet. Drop 12 portions of the dough onto a cookie sheet, then flatten slightly with your fingers.
Bake 15 minutes, or until nicely browned.

Even my husband, who has an incredible sweet tooth, loves these.


  1. Wow I can hardly believe it!

    Have you any nutritional information about the recipe?

  2. Yes, I through the ingredients into fitday. The recipe makes 12 cookies and each cookie contains approximately 205 calories, 17g of fat (yay!), 11g carbs (although this is measuring with dark chocolate chips, I actually used an 85% dark chocolate lindt bar and cut it into chunks so the carbs will be less) and 4.5g of protein. In all the percentages were 70% fat, 21% carb and 8% protein.

    This is a fantastic way to end the day, delicious!! And I still lost a pound!!

  3. 3 Researches PROVE Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually kill fat by consuming Coconut Fats (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from large medical magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
