Paleo Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie

Finally…a paleo recipe on Gluten Free Jess! I know I am way late to the paleo party, but I think you will be quite happy with this little paleo-friendly treat! I know that many people probably roll their eyes when they hear the word “paleo” because it is so often associated with the cross-fit obsessed and health conscious. However, if you do your research on the paleo diet it has been around for a long time. It is a complete game changer for people with auto-immune diseases and difficulty with their digestive and gut health. What I love about paleo recipes is that they are friendly for people on gluten and dairy free diets and incorporate lots of healthy ingredients.

I have to admit I had to do some research to make sure the ingredients in these Paleo Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie actually were paleo because it is not a diet that I follow regularly. If you are a paleo expert and something is wrong in here…please let me know! I had difficulty finding an exact answer on chocolate being paleo or what kind of chocolate is ok. I used Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Morsels which are dairy free These do contain cane sugar so not 100% paleo, but Danielle Walker of Against All Grain has referenced this brand in her recipes so I am saying it counts.

If you are on a paleo diet and need a sweet treat this mug cookie will definitely do the trick. It is quick and easy to make and has ingredients that you likely have on-hand if you do a lot of paleo or gluten free baking. I like these single-serve type of desserts because then there isn’t a big batch of treats tempting you around the house and there is virtually no mess to clean up.

Paleo or not…I hope you give this delicious mug cookie a try! Have a wonderful rest of your week!

    Wow this might possibly be the best mug dessert I’ve ever had! The only sub I made was to use palm shortening in place of the coconut oil, because I don’t really care for coconut oil. Awesome recipe

    Made this last night and we both loved them. We will definitely make this recipe again. Nice to have on hand and not have to make a whole batch of cookies and this is ready in minute. Thanks for the recipe!

    Totally trying this tonight! I don’t have chocolate chips at hand, but I’ll be subbing either dark chocolate bar chopped into pieces, or dried cranberries, or both! 🙂

    Okay, so I’ve tried probably 50 mug recipies in my time-including with butter and all the other “real stuff”. I’ve recently gone paleo and gave this recipie a try. It’s amazing! It has that yummy cookie texture a lot of others recipies lack. So good! Thanks for sharing.
