    I used maple syrup v honey just because I like the taste better. I used normal sized choc chips, but I think they would be better with mini ones. Very, very delicious though. Exactly what I needed after today.

    I used coconut flour instead of almond flour by error! Total mess up. I then realised I don’t have any almond flour so ended up using almond meal instead. Was ok. Live and learn I guess :)

    Very good…almost taste like a mounds / almond joy…must be the coconut oil. Super easy to make. Glad there were only a few of them–otherwise I might have eaten them all.

    This can’t really be considered paleo. Honey, although raw, is Still a natural sweetener/sugar. Any type of sugar can cause inflammation in the body and therefore is not ideal for a paleo diet. When looking for a sweetener try using dates. Dates are an extremely sweet fruit and because the sugar comes from A paleo approved source it would be a better choice. Chocolate chips also contain white processed sugar.

    • adriana July 29, 2013 at 9:28 am Reply

      raw, unrefined, unheated honey is a “paleo approved” sweetener. Dates also raise blood sugar and are very high in carbs.

      Honey causes inflammation? Really? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15117561 “Natural honey lowers plasma glucose, C-reactive protein, homocysteine, and blood lipids in healthy, diabetic, and hyperlipidemic subjects: comparison with dextrose and sucrose”

    Delicious! :) And for once I don’t feel guilty after eating cookie dough! I used almond meal because I couldn’t find any almond flour, I was wondering what is the difference?

    • adriana June 20, 2013 at 12:26 pm Reply

      Thanks for the feedback. Almond meal and flour are the same thing, just ground up almonds. This is the one I use and recommend

    Yum! Can’t wait to make these tonight for a girl’s ‘night in!’

    PS-How do you get those Amazon items (Products I used for this recipe) to show on your post?

  9. Ruta June 21, 2013 at 12:28 am Reply

    Wow, YUM! They look so perfect and easy to just pop into your mouth. And made with healthy ingredients? I’m in. I love healthy cookie dough!

    Is there something I can substitute for the honey? My boys are not allowed to have honey on their FODMAP diet.

    • adriana June 23, 2013 at 2:06 pm Reply

      how about raw coconut palm sugar or liquid stevia?

    What is the nutritional value on this?

  12. Angie August 3, 2013 at 9:59 am Reply

    yah wondering nutritional count on this as well thanks!

  13. […] Paleo Cookie Dough Bites […]

  14. […] 3. Paleo Cookie Dough Bites Perhaps the only thing better than chocolate chip cookies is chocolate chip cookie dough and just eating it straight up. Usually this stirs up some debate because many cookie dough recipes call for a raw egg being mixed in, and it’s thought that salmonella is a concern. But these bites don’t use any eggs, so feel free to eat them without worry. In addition to not containing eggs, which are Paleo approved btw, they don’t include any ingredients that make the list of foods not to eat on Paleo. These turn out looking great, so they’re fun to serve at parties and other get togethers, and relatively easy to make, and hey, no baking required. […]

    I don’t have coconut milk, could I sub with something else?

    • adriana October 25, 2013 at 8:05 am Reply

      raw milk, almond milk or any other milk of your choose should be good.

  16. tonia bertram November 14, 2013 at 11:51 am Reply

    could i bake them if i want to?

    • adriana November 21, 2013 at 9:49 am Reply

      yes, I think it would be no problem to bake these, but I haven’t tried it. Please let me know how it goes.

  17. Joi Carey December 12, 2013 at 8:01 am Reply

    Can you suggest a nut free flour that coud replace the almond?

    • adriana December 14, 2013 at 10:55 am Reply

      You could try using coconut flour, but you will need to add a lot less and I am not sure how much. Try adding 1 tbsp at the time until you get the right consistency.

    Fantastic! I was craving chocolate tonight and I wanted something other than just eating enjoy life chocolate chips plain! Loved these! We made a double batch, so glad we did! My kids liked them too!

    Could I use vanilla sugar instead of vanilla extract? If I can, how much vanilla sugar do put in?

    • adriana January 9, 2014 at 9:23 am Reply

      Tonje, vanilla extract is pure vanilla with no added sugar. If you substitute vanilla sugar for the vanilla extract you will need to adjust the amount of honey added and I am not sure how much to add without doing some testing first.

    I added a little bit of salt because my moms choc chip cookies always had salt and I loved the contrast. These were good, my kiddos even liked them. I used carob chips, but next time I will use the real thing….. I am sure it would set these over the top!! Thank you!

    i have to say I am very new to the Paleo life but am really looking it! The hardest part is my daughter I want to satisfy he snacking and sweet tooth once in awhile and allow her treats this was a fantastic and amazing discovery for me all the recipes are truly amazing! I’m so happy I found you and this particular recipe because she loved cookie dough before and now I can still let her have it!!!

    These are just as yummy baked. My daughter even added berries to the mix instead of Choc chips as we didn’t have them on hand and they were a winner!! Great recipe

    • adriana February 18, 2014 at 8:39 am Reply

      Thanks Sharyn!
