Paleo Chocolate Chip Bars


Around 3:00 this afternoon, I noticed that the only sweets we have in the house are frozen Christmas cookies. I’m a bit over Christmas cookies at the moment (and probably until February) so I did a little something about it.

I busted out my almond meal and got to work creating a recipe for paleo/flourless bars. We have flour in the house…I just like a challenge Smile


After coming up with some estimated measurements, I got to work. The dough tasted yummy…


They looked good going into the oven…


(remind me to discuss the Ov’ Glove in another post…it’s awesome)

I said a hope and a prayer, and held my breath as I set the timer for 25 minutes as they baked.




They turned out soft and chewy with just the right amount of sweetness and texture – and got a thumbs up from both Shane and me.



Paleo Chocolate Chip Bars

1.5 c. almond flour or almond meal

1/3 c. raw sugar

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. sea salt

1 tbsp. cinnamon

1/2 c. pumpkin puree

2 tbsp. coconut oil

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 c. chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 baking pan (I just rubbed it down with some of the coconut oil with my hands.) Mix the first 5 ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.



Before I got hit with the baking bug, Shane and I ended up running some errands around town. He had to pick up some jeans he was having hemmed, and I had some coupons to use at various places.

And now, I feel like sitting down with a good book for an hour so that’s just what I’m going to do. I put a tweet out for some book suggestions, and got back a few good ones!


But since when I ask someone their opinion I do the exact opposite, I went with 11/22/63 by Stephen King. It’s about a guy who travels back in time to the day that John F. Kennedy died. Riveting, I know.

Ta ta!

What’s the last good book you read?

    I just read Violets of March which was a fantastic, quick and easy read. I have had almond flour in my house for a while but can never figure out what to make with it. This looks like a good recipe and the perfect snack!

  2. The bars look just perfect! Great job! Whoop whoop to the creativity. I’m not much of a reader…and I just don’t have the time with Kay! Bahh!

  3. those look soo yummy! The Sisters is an awesome book and The Hunger game series is soo good. I am now in the middle of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and its really good!

    • Thanks for the recs! I’ll add them to the list :) I read the Hunger Games last year – the first two right away and then Mocking Jay assoonasitcameout. Loved them more than Twilight!

  4. “I noticed that the only sweets we have in the house are frozen Christmas cookies.” — umm, you need to come to my house then…I have so much food it’s kind of ridiculous. I don’t bake things for the blog per se but I have a ridic amt of leftovers!

    These remind me of a pumpkin/oatmeal bar I made this fall. No eggs, no flour. Plenty of sugar and pumpkin puree though!

  5. Totally off topic… I bought flavored coconut water today and thought of you. Can’t wait to try it!

  6. Stephen King is a great author though, so I’m sure it’ll be awesome!

  7. I can’t wait to try these out! I love when I read a recipe that looks amazing and realize I have everything on hand :)

  8. Those look great! I have all of the ingredients except the almond meal which I ALMOST got today but decided against it … I’m really regretting that now!

    I can’t wait to try these bars! I’m assuming you make your own almond meal….what do you use to grind the almonds? If you have used a coffee grinder, which one do you recommend? Thanks!

  10. trying these asap! have a great week, my love.

  11. yummm!

  12. Yumm these look amazing. I’m totally loving making paleo treats of late. Right now I’m reading ‘Have a little faith’ by mitch albom and really liking it! Before this one it was the twilight series lol!

  13. Looks yummy! Glad you found my blog so I could find yours! Tina at Carrots N Cake just had a great post on Almond Flour so I am excited to find more recipes using that ingredient! Check out her post if you want!

  14. Oooh just found these on pinterest and HAVE to make them! Thanks for sharing girl! Yum!! :)

  15. Technically these aren’t Paleo because they have sugar in them. Could try replacing the sugar with honey or maple syrup but would have to reduce quantity of wet ingredients. Would be interested if you had tested that?

  16. It’s enormous that you are getting ideas frdom this piece of writing as wel as from our dialogue made at
    this place.
