CSK Chocolate Chip Cookie is Nut Free and Paleo

Updated: Jun 29, 2022

Hello! The Common Sense Kitchen started because I wanted to provide my family with a delicious pathway to the healthiest living possible through foods that do not contain any preservatives, unknown ingredients or additives. My recipes are healthy, paleo-based and gluten-free.

The best cookie I have ever eaten! –Dad

The first goal of mine was to create a healthy cookie for my father, a cancer-survivor, to snack on in his retirement. He LOVES chocolate chip cookies and liked the ones made at our local grocery store, which of course contained ingredients that do not occur in nature and have strange, unpronounceable names.

Here is the recipe... and coming soon, an entire cookbook of healthy and delicious recipes for your entire family to enjoy!

CSK Chocolate Chip Cookie (nut free)

Ingredients (makes #20-24)

1/2 cup grass-fed butter

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1 large egg, room temperature

2 tsp vanilla

1 cup tigernut flour

2 TB (1/8 c) arrowroot flour

1 tsp cream of tartar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp xanthan gum (optional)

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (Enjoy Life Foods)


  1. In mixing bowl, combine softened grass-fed butter and coconut sugar until creamy and well mixed. Add egg and vanilla, stir well.

  2. Add tigernut flour, arrowroot flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, (xanthan gum) and salt. Mix well until smooth. FOLD in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours – OVERNIGHT is best.

  3. Preheat oven to 350° and line baking sheet with parchment paper.

  4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place on baking sheet in equal heaps (tablespoon-size; a small ice cream scoop works great). Space evenly on baking sheet (best if baked one sheet at a time).

  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool before removing them from rack.

NOTES: Xanthan gum is optional. It does help in keeping the cookie from "spreading" as it bakes. It is a thickener.

STORAGE: Store in an airtight container or place in freezer in freezer bag.
