Have you guys tried raw Paleo cookie dough yet? Oh man, it’s freakin fantastic stuff. I’m seriously OBSESSED with it. I first started eating it in the form of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough – I used a bunch of different recipes (Paleo Parents Monster Cookie Dough and Wicked Spatula's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, just to name a few) and then eventually I made it so much I just kind of morphed it into the kind of deal where I just threw ingredients in a bowl without even measuring them. To be perfectly honest here, I eat it as a snack. It probably should be a dessert, but I usually want it mid-afternoon when I am at home and it’s so incredibly easy to make that I just can’t stop myself. Plus it’s got a good amount of fat in it so it does a fantastic job of keeping me full until dinner then. No more constant picking at other things in my pantry after that.
One day a few weeks ago I got a harebrained idea to mix up my cookie dough and instead of doing the regular chocolate chip to add some cinnamon in instead to make it a snickerdoodle cookie. And WOW. I looooooved it and when I gave it to my kids they went bananas over it. Now when I offer it as a snack idea my oldest starts smiling and contorting his body into strange positions like he has been possessed, which is a sure sign that he is excited.
This is what goes into it:
This video below is a bit of a departure from my normal ones but it's only like 30 seconds and it’s in double time.
As for how long this all took – add 30 seconds to the video above for how long it really took and then add maybe another 1-2 minutes for gathering and measuring the ingredients. Like I mentioned above I typically do not measure out the ingredients but since I know that can lead to unwanted results when first trying this, I have included measurements (approximate) below in the recipe. But then I encourage you to just go with it and not measure! Be a rebel! 🙂
