  • 1/2 cup organic grass fed butter paleo version (melted) - use earth balance butter sticks for dairy free version
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar tightly packed - use coconut brown sugar for paleo version
  • 1/3 cup sugar - coconut sugar for paleo version
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cup gluten-free flour or paleo flour
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips or your favorites
  • 1/2 cup  heath bar brickle


  • In a mixing bowl combine melted butter, brown and white sugar. Mix until everything is incorporated. Then add vanilla and egg- mix until a creamy mixture forms
  • Add salt, baking soda, gluten-free flour, corn starch- mix until dough forms. Paleo or not the dough will be sticky to work with.
  • Add chocolate chips/ chunks & heath bar brickle. Mix until evenly distributed.
  • Cover dough and place in fridge for 1 hour or overnight. Setting in the fridge  produces a better tasting and easier to work with cookie. This step is vital so be sure to not skip it.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter baking sheet or use parchment paper.
  • Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup scoop out dough until the cup is full, place on baking sheet, repeat with remaining dough.
  • Bake for 16-17 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and middle is soft.
  • Then transfer to cooling rack for 10 minutes or if you can't resist eating them just let them sit for 3 minutes, they will be soft and gooey.
  • To store them use an airtight container or plastic baggie. They can be kept for up to a week (fresh) or if you want you can freeze them then reheat in a microwave.
  • ENJOY :)


Before making this recipe realize that if you make it paleo the consistency and taste will be different.
