When the holiday’s come around, so do those holiday cookie trays. These particular Paleo cookies were made by special request!
If you’re still planning your Christmas dinner, hop on over to this post to take a look at the past 7 years worth of Christmas menu’s that I’ve prepared. And if you’re looking for one more cookie to add to your baking list, give this one a try!
I was talking to my friend Alison about Paleo holiday recipes and within our conversation she challenged me to create some Paleo Chocolate Crinkles.
I can never pass up a challenge! Since I had never officially tried a Chocolate Crinkle before, after experimenting a bit I invited Alison over to do some taste testing and tell me if I was on mark.
This cookie recipe is the flavor combination that received her final seal of approval.
Chocolate Crinkle Characteristics
For those who’ve never had Chocolate Crinkles, these Paleo Cookies have a high volume of chocolate and aren’t too sweet. The first batch I made I left out the honey altogether, and they tasted great to me, but if we were going to serve these cookies to others who don’t have the same palate as we do, we needed to add some sweetness. Enter, raw honey.
Typically, Chocolate Crinkles are coated in powdered sugar and crack on top when baked. I replaced the powdered sugar with coconut sugar and these Paleo Cookies do, in fact, crack when cooked.
These Paleo Chocolate Crinkles have an ooey-gooey center when you take them right out of the oven and pop them in your mouth. But don’t say I didn’t warn you, if you do that, you may burn some taste buds so let them rest a bit before you start munchin’. :)
