75 Paleo Cookie Recipes You Can’t Resist

75 paleo cookies of every type that you won’t be able to resist! Including many vegan paleo cookie recipe options.

I’ve been scouring the internet for the best paleo cookies I could find and here are the results! There are loads of vegan recipes and even nut-free and AIP recipes. And there’s a whole section just for chocolate chip cookies. :D At the end you’ll find a bunch of paleo fall + holiday cookies, too, that would be great any time but for the sake of organization, they’re in their own little section!

75 Paleo Cookie Recipes You Can Not Resist - includes vegan, AIP, nut-free, no-bake options and more!

A few recipes aren’t labeled on the originating blog as paleo cookies, but I’ve gone through all the ingredients in each recipe to make sure that they are indeed paleo. So some recipes call for “dairy-free chocolate” rather than “paleo chocolate” or give you an option between coconut oil and butter. If you’re unsure of what is paleo compliant or not, check out this paleo diet food list.

      Great list, thanks. My 4yo son likes hard, crunchy cookies, are there any recipes you would suggest trying first. I know a lot of paleo cookies are more on the soft, chewy side. Thanks 😊

        I’m happy you like it! :) It’s been a year and a half since I put this list together and don’t remember which ones were crunchy and I also don’t have any crunchy paleo cookie recipes myself so I’m afraid I can’t really answer your question. Sorry about that! I hope you can find something your son will like. :)

      I love that you have a whole section for chocolate chip cookies (which are my favorite)…and I don’t love that now I’m craving cookies in the worst way! ha ha.

      It’s probably a bad sign that even after all the ester candy yesterday, I STILL want one of each of these cookies…Oh well, can’t help myself :)

      because they are paleo, we all get one, right? and then a sugar high later? paleo sugar.
