Paleo Chocolate Fudge Cookies

One thing I always do for the blog is keep a list of recipe ideas I get or things I want to attempt to make Paleo or gluten free. A very long time ago someone requested I figure out how to make chocolate crinkle cookies that were Paleo. Since then I’ve been working on it but have yet to figure it out. While I’ve never actually had a real chocolate crinkle cookie I imagine them to be chocolatey and cake like. These cookies do have somewhat of a resemblance I think becasue they are super chocolatey and a bit fudgie. Plus they taste like cake. The only they don’t have is the powdered sugar. Instead I replaced it with a much more Paleo swap of unsweetened coconut (or sprinkles…not Paleo…for some color). Hope you like them!



  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • dash salt
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (just almonds)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • Unsweetened coconut


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. In a mixing bowl combine the cocoa powder, almond flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Mix in the eggs and almond butter stirring well.
  4. Add in the honey and vanilla blending until combined.
  5. Drop batter onto a greased baking sheet by 1/2 tbs. full.
  6. Sprinkle the cookies with unsweetened coconut.
  7. Bake 8-10 minutes until tops begin to crack.

Makes 20 cookies

    I love how simple the ingredients are in most paleo dishes! The fact that you added sprinkles to the cookies make them look even more delicious.. if that’s even possible? :)
