No long post about life. I’m cutting down the good stuff. The good chocolate-y stuff. When I created this recipe I wanted a cookie with a brownie like texture, moist and fudgey with a deep chocolate flavor. And that’s exactly what I got in this recipe. It’s refined sugar free, using coconut sugar and I use half ghee and half coconut oil which gives it the perfect softness and delicious nuttiness reminiscent of browned butter. It’s definitely a treat, but one with no weird ingredients, not overly indulgent, and still has some health benefits!
Need I say more. I think not. So here’s the recipe.

Paleo Brownie Cookie
This cookie has a rich chocolate flavor with the fudgey texture of a brownie. Oh and there are chocolate chunks - which are optional but very much encouraged.
- 1/2 cup cacao powder
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup ghee melted
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4-1/2 cup chocolate chunks optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line baking sheet with parchment paper
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cacao powder, coconut sugar, melted ghee, and melted coconut oil together until well mixed.
With the mixer on low add in 1 egg at a time. Then add the vanilla
Scrape down sides of the bowl. Then add the flour and the baking powder and mix just until no streaks are visible.
Mix in the chocolate chunks into the batter.
Using a scoop or tablespoon portion out balls onto the prepared baking sheet. Form the balls into cookie shaped discs (the cookies do not spread during baking).
Baking for approximate 12 minutes or until edges look slightly darker. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Recommended to store in the fridge or freezer.
