There is just nothing like a chocolate chip cookie hot out of the oven. Paleo or not, there are few that will disagree with that statement.

Five years ago when I went Paleo, I just could not fathom going the rest of my life without a cookie nonetheless my son going without the joy of blowing out the candles on his birthday cake.

These reasons drove me to the kitchen and I am an unabashed comfort food lover. It doesn’t matter who you are, there are times when a salad just won’t cut it.

You know what I’m talking about.

You need a thick juicy burger or a slice of banana cream pie.

This Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is just one of 113 recipes from my cookbook, Paleo Eats. This book is a straight homage to real food, made without gluten and dairy.

The recipes are simple (ain’t nobody got time for complicated recipes with hard to find ingredients) and delicious.

They will take you back to your favorite food memories and I hope that this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe will soon become another one.
