Recipe Review: Elana's Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are not legal because of the chocolate, if you read my blog much you know I am not opposed to to cheating once in awhile, especially when it comes to chocolate. Anyway I did substitute honey for the agave, cut the salt in half and added some chunky pecans. I used Enjoy Life's Chocolate chips because they are gluten and dairy free. They tasted even better the next day.

The recipe is here at Elana's Pantry


  1. I love Elana's Pantry! I've been able to adapt many of her recipes to SCD. I have a story about this cookie recipe. One time we decided to let our son cheat on his diet for the sake of a school carnival. So I made this recipe and donated it to the carnival snack bar. (I used honey but the chocolate was still a cheat) I was thinking this way our child could have a cookie from the carnival snack bar, since he usually can't have stuff like that. Well, they were sold out when we got there, and I had made a triple batch!

    Also, I've used Macademia oil in this cookie recipe and it was amazing (and pricey).

  2. Oh Tracee, that is so funny! I too have found that when people are not expecting anything different they love SCD food. Where do you find Macademia oil? I love the flavor of the nuts and I think it would really add to the cookies. Thanks for reading!

  3. I find Macademia oil at the health food store, but stores that like to carry gourmet items will usually have some as well, I think here in Texas, H.E.B. might have it. Whole Foods or Central Market might as well.

  4. Thanks, I will look around for it.
