Addicting Without the Guilt!

Sponsored by Macy’s and ShopStyle

A few weeks ago Ryan and I were craving homemade chocolate chip cookies. Like the type of craving where you are willing to get out of your pjs and into your car to satisfy said craving”¦ We were there. The only thing that was stopping us was our healthy eating streak!

I’m dairy free all the time because I have to be (ugh!), but we do try and cut out most grains while we are at home as well. That doesn’t mean I’m not down for a big bowl of popcorn or rice in my Chipotle, but for the most part we try and eat pretty clean.

But since our chocolate chip cookie craving wasn’t going away anytime soon I decided to do a little research to see what I could whip up that might satisfy us without completely ruining our streak… and that’s when I came across this recipe (my modified recipe is below)!

Could it be true? Was there really a cookie recipe out there that was both paleo and delicious?! To be honest most, of the paleo cookie recipes I’ve made taste pretty crummy (pun intended!). But this recipe seemed a bit more promising than any of the other ones I had tried. So I thought, what the heck, I’ll give it a whirl! Plus, I love any excuse to pull out my fancy-shmancy KitchenAid Mixer and ceramic bowl from Macy’s!

If there is one thing in my kitchen that I most enjoy using it’s my KitchenAid Mixer.  For some reason it just makes me feel legit. I’ve had a KitchenAid stainless steel mixer for ages, but recently did a little upgrade and swapped it out for this pretty cream color mixer and gorgeous white ceramic mixing bowl. It just one of those kitchen staples that makes a statement, and this color-way is making me so happy! Plus, I love the way it brightens up my kitchen.

So, once I pulled out my mixer, I realized that I had most of the ingredients, but not all.  I ended up modifying the recipe and it turned out better than I ever could have imagined! I now make these cookies at least once a week and feel ZERO guilt about eating them! They are grain free, processed sugar free, and oh-so-good. Please, if you do one thing this week, make these cookies!!

Also, I can’t wrap up this post without saying just how great of a wedding registry gift this KitchenAid mixer is for your Macy’s Wedding Registry, especially being in the midst of wedding season, I know we all need good gift ideas! But what I really love is that KitchenAid now has so many accessories that are affordable, like the ceramic white bowl! How cute would it be to wrap up the bowl and a frilly little apron as your next shower gift. Cute, thoughtful, affordable, and special.

  1. Hi! Doing quarantine baking and I’m trying to Amazon the lacanto monk fruit syrup. Is it the same as extract? Could you possibly post a picture of the bottle? Thank you!

  2. Love that you partnered with Macy’s for this! I saved for my KitchenAid for a whole year, at 18, and bought mine at Macy’s on a great sale. It still works perfectly 12 years later!

  3. YAS this cookie recipe is the BEST! So glad you shared your modified version, I leave the coconut and pecans out too and up the almond flour and chocolate chips ha!

  4. So glad you posted these! I tried this recipe after you posted it on Instagram and my family is OBSESSED!! This is by far my new favorite cookie recipe, and I love that it’s a lot cleaner than most ones (ie not a pound of butter haha). Such a great find 🙂
