  • ½  tsp baking soda
  • ½  tsp sea salt
  • cup dark chocolate chips (dairy free or vegan, if desired)
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling on top


  • Preheat oven to 190C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Roll cookie dough into balls (you can use an ice cream scoop to measure it) and place on baking sheet.
  • Flatten each ball with your hands until they are about 1/4inch thick. Sprinkle cookies with sea salt. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges are firm but the centre is just about set. Do not over-bake these cookies or else they will become dry.
  • Let the paleo brookies cool down completely before reaching for your first piece. Enjoy!
