The Best Paleo Brownie Crinkle Cookies made with nut-free and gluten-free ingredients for an easy and healthier crinkle cookie recipe!

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 9-10 cookies 1x


  • 2 pasture-raised eggs (haven’t tested flax egg)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (do not recommend honey or maple syrup – need the grainy texture!)
  • 5 ounces Hu Kitchen Salty Dark Chocolate (code RACHL for free shipping)
  • 3 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper 
  2. In a large bowl, add the eggs and coconut sugar and mix well with hand mixer (or really well with spatula if you do not have mixer) for about 2-3 minutes. The sugar will dissolve and scrap down the sides of the bowl with any excess mixture
  3. Add the dark chocolate and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl and heat on 30 second increments (stirring in between) until melted
  4. Stir in the vanilla extract then add to the large bowl with the egg/sugar mixture and mix again for about 2 minutes
  5. Add the cacao powder, coconut flour and baking powder to the bowl and mix well (it should be really thick like frosting or brownie-like batter!)
  6. Using a spoon or cookie dough scooper, scoop about 2 tablespoons of batter per cookie onto the sheet (leave about 2 inches between each cookie as they spread!)
  7. Sprinkle sea salt on top then bake in oven for 10-12 minutes
  8. Allow the cookies to cool for a minute or two then enjoy!


*Store leftovers in an airtight container for 5 days or freezer for 2 months
