These cookies are my all-time favorite cookie. As a kid, this was a Christmas cookie my grandma always made. And I was always the one who ate them all. When I went gluten-free, I had to find a way to re-create these cookies.
Since Valentine’s day is two days away, it was perfect timing to share this recipe. It is super easy to make, and you most likely already have the ingredients! Honestly, I recommend making a batch for yourself because we all need to treat ourselves now and then.
What I love about these chocolate drop cookies is they’re fudgy in the center. With paleo baking, cookies don’t spread out like normal cookies. Which I’m not about as those are the best type of cookies. If you prefer a crisper cookie, press the cookies down to flatten them out!
The best way to eat these cookies (in my humble opinion) is by taking two cookies, spreading peanut butter on one, and making a cookie sandwich. It is crack! If you aren’t a cookie person, I highly recommend you check these thick coconut flour brownies!

*If you don’t have vanilla ghee, you can use a 1/4 cup of regular ghee and 1 tsp vanilla extract!
Note: I love spreading peanut butter between two cookies to make a sandwich!
Store these cookies in the freezer, and they’ll taste 10x better once they’re cold! I truly love these cookies, and I hope you love the adaptation of my grandma’s recipe.
