I have to admit something… I have an addiction. To this cookie/dough. I have been aching for a real chocolate chip cookie for awhile now but don’t want all the crazy ingredients that are usually involved and I didn’t want to make a batch because then I would eat WAY more than 1 AND buy flour (no thanks). Prior to paleo my FAVORITE thing ever was a fresh, warm chocolate chip cookie. I loved Subway cookies, Panera Bread cookies, Otis Spunkmeyer cookies… you name it, I probably ate it and LOVED it.
Welp. I have fixed my craving and then some. And by some I mean at least 5 times in the past week…
I decided to call this recipe cookie “dough” because it doesn’t cook all the way through which means the entire middle is ooey gooey like warm cookie dough… which is the very best way to eat cookie dough in my humble opinion 😀 My favorite part is that it doesn’t have any maple syrup, coconut sugar, or honey for sweetener, only half a banana and the mini chips!
You’ll want to make this and they you’ll want to keep making it… and then it will become a problem just like it has for me! Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
On a totally un-cookie-related note, The Dr.’s graduation is ONE WEEK FROM TODAY. Holy crap that came fast and there is so much to DO before he moves to NYC next month! I didn’t tell you guys that before but he is moving out to Manhattan for a year in only a few short weeks and I am messy about it. And by messy I mean I will probably become a pile of emotion in July so there may be more desserts during that time… Unless I do a Whole30 since I have a million weddings in August and one is in Mexico (bikini…). That might be a horrible idea because of the feels I will be experiencing, but we will see. Sorry I am rambling. Back to cookie dough, that always makes me feel better.
You may just have all the ingredients for this RIGHT NOW so give it a shot and let me know if you tweak it and it turns out even awesomer. Because if you make an awesomer version I want to also make it! And I am sure other readers do too!
OH YEAH! I almost forgot to tell you that you only have hours left to order The Fat-Burning Chef Cookbook for $27 ($20 off!)

Paleo Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
- Mash banana into a ramekin or mug
- Add remaining ingredients and stir until well combined
- Nuke for 1 minute 45 seconds and check for doneness, if you want the center really gooey you’re done
- Cook for another 15-30 seconds if you desire a more cooked cookie
- Dig in, I recommend a drizzle of cold coconut milk over the top!
