Paleo Double Chocolate Cookie Dough
Notice a trend? Recently there has been a couple of recipes which are paleo friendly. (And also subconsciously a number of other dietary groups too- Grain free, Vegan and Vegetarian friendly!)
No, I am not going Paleo- Ironic after yesterday’s post. There is good (and humerous) reasoning behind it- but you’ll have to wait until Thursday for that!
I swear I must internally be American. Not only am I obsessed with New York City but I’m obsessed with cookie dough. Although I was very late on the bandwagon, I’m in full fledged ’embrace it ALL’ mode.
What started out at as the Nut Butter Breakfast Cookie dough (as an excuse to eat cookie dough for breakfast) and then the Paleo Breakfast Cookie dough I trialled in honour of a blend. I mentioned in that post how I had a double chocolate variation I needed to share- and today is the day.
Paleo friendly chocolate is pretty darn easy. Coconut oil, cocoa powder and honey to preferred sweetness. I’m a huge fan of the dark chocolate (i.e. 85%+ variety) so I tend to use minimal amounts of the honey. I once omitted it completely and it was…..let’s end the story there.
Chocolate for breakfast is nice but double chocolate is even better. No, this recipe isn’t false advertising. You use chocolate in it twice and it tastes like cookie dough. Hell, if you add more coconut milk, it can actually be exactly like crumbly cookie dough…just don’t eat it in public.

- Like the original Paleo Breakfast cookie dough, these are great to store in the freezer and simply remove 30 minutes before consumption. If making in batches, it’s best tasting coming out of the fridge but can be kept at room temperature for up to 5 days.
This week will be final week of the Flashback edition of Spill it, Sundays- next week, we will do a Flashback edition of OTHER blogger posts- a great idea by the cheese hater Meg. Don’t forget if you highlight a recipe, add that to the link up too- they will be added to the Pinterest board!
