Recipe ingredients

Ingredients needed to make Paleo Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Freeze dried strawberry ingredients.
  • Coconut Oil– any good quality refined coconut oil works in this recipe. Use refined coconut oil to reduce coconut flavor.
  • Coconut Sugar– this has a lower glycemic index compared to other sugars.
  • Egg– this helps bind the cookies togethers.

  1. What an awesome idea to combine strawberries and chocolate into the cookie! And to make it paleo – that’s even better! I haven’t tried to make paleo cookies yet, but this would easily be the first one I try!

  2. Those look fantastic and I have always loved strawberry and chocolate. Who doesn’t? Thanks for sharing!5 stars

  3. I stumbled upon this recipe by accident, and I can’t believe how delicious they look. I can’t believe these are paleo, either. Wow. I’m making a batch of these for a friend who’s allergic to gluten and dairy. They will make a great Valentine’s gift for her.

  4. I love these cookies! I love that they are paleo! And the taste of strawberries and chocolate together, perfect! Lucky for me I’m going to the store today so I can grab some freeze-dried strawberries so I can make your luscious cookies!!5 stars

  5. I love the strawberries! That’s really a great idea, using them in baked goods – because you’re right, the fresh are fine in things like muffins, but that moisture would ruin a good cookie. This looks just right!

  6. These look so great! I love that you’ve added dried strawberries to an already fantastic recipe. I’d like a stack of those right now.

  7. I love the visual interest those freeze dried strawberries provide to these cookies. Most meals the hubby and I eat are paleo; however, I have been craving a cookie. This recipe couldn’t have come at a better time.

  8. What a fantastic idea to incorporate dried strawberries into chocolate chip cookies! Strawberries and chocolate are such a perfect combo. I love that these cookies are made with almond and coconut flours also–a great GF treat!5 stars
