You guys! You guys! You guys! You guys! You guys! You guys! I’m so freakin’ excited about these COOKIES!
When I was in college there was this little mom and pop natural grocery store. It was darling and carried a few locally made items. One of those items was this amazing cookie. My roommate and I would buy up all the cookies whenever they were in stock. We would take them home and freeze them, saving them for those late night study sessions. They were just the best cookie ever.
The cookies were these large disks of chocolate goodness. They were crispy and crumbly, slightly sweet and full of chocolate chips and crisp cocoa nibs. And the best part? A kick of cayenne pepper! No kidding, a tiny bit spicy made these cookies amazing.
Ever since I graduated and moved away I have dreamed of that cookie. The triple chocolate and that hint of spice.
Well, I’ve got amazing news! Almost 6 years later, I have gotten to taste that amazing cookie again. But this time I made it in my own kitchen! And it was paleo! Be still my cookie-loving heart!
The original recipe comes from The Texanerin and she was kind enough to allow me to share my version of her recipe with you all (thank you Erin!) Her cookie recipe is called Perfect Paleo Double Chocolate Cookies and they are really great cookies, perfect for the kiddos! We made some with eyeballs and they loved them! If you are making these for your kiddos leave out the cinnamon and cayenne.
So again, thanks to Erin for allowing me to share my hack to her recipe! Go check out her blog, The Texanerin, and give her some love <3
