Paleo Nut Butter Dough Cookies

I realise I haven’t written in a while, my blog has been quite low on my priority list recently what with my 25th birthday, lots of new clients and general day to day life. Life ….It gets in the way sometimes right! haha

However I am keen to get back into regular blogging for you in order to help you along your health journey. I miss it! And I miss hearing all your feedback from recipes or posts I share. Without further ado, I present to you the recipe for a delicious nut butter cookie.

I was quite hesitant to make these, as I often think ‘clean’ or ‘health’ snacks can taste boring or bland, however I am now adamant to be completely sugar free and hopefully more or less grain free. So I thought why not try, and I’m glad I did because they are SUPER yummy and completely free from sugar, grains and dairy.

Before I start however I have also come to the realisation that although I want to be sugar and grain free, we must not feel guilty for eating them in moderation. It’s consistency not perfection, and If I am constantly trying to live healthier and avoid these foods then great! However a pizza followed by a chocolate sundae on a friday night isn’t going to kill me or make me put on 5kg.

Give yourself a break.

I do miss having something sweet after a meal, so I really appreciated having made a batch of 6 of these cookies so I didn’t have to crave anything. Plus they were sooooooo easy to make and great if you’re doing low carb high fat.


1 cup of nut butter – (this can be anything from cashew to peanut, in this case I used peanut but to make it Paleo obviously cashew or almond is better)

1 egg

1/2 cup almond flour

2 tbsp agave syrup (or more to your liking – I added 1/4 cup but found it to be a bit too sweet)

1/2 tsp baking soda

Dark chocolate squares (I used vegan Rapunzel 85% dark chocolate)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C or 350F
  2. Mix all the ingredients together, no particular order is needed.
  3. Place in small circular dollops on baking tray, I made 6 but you can make them smaller if you like.
  4. Put a square of dark chocolate in the middle of each cookie dough dollop.
  5. Bake in oven for 16 minutes!

VOILA…..enjoy and let me know what you think!
