Strawberry Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

What better way to ring in a Thursday! All the cookies, please! When I made these cookies, I couldn’t stop eating the dough and immediately got them out of my house and took them straight to the gym! They are crunchy, chewy, chocolatey and just a little bit salty if you’re like me and put flake salt on all dessert. I just think all chocolate should have salt involved. Seriously loved these! And they are so simple to make!

Soooooo I think I took my dog obsession to a whole new level. Just the other day, I hired our adorable neighbor who works on all the houses around here to install a storm door. All because our living room doesn’t face west. So as the sun moves throughout the day, Jackson doesn’t get much sun unless he goes out in the backyard. And well, he’s such an only child that he won’t go outside unless I’m outside. SO, I decided we should get a glass door in front of our front door to let extra light in…meaning give a spot for Jackson to sunbathe in. I bought a door so my dog could sunbathe. I hate myself for loving him so much.

I’m beginning to get a tad nervous about this next month. I had one trip planned then added one more and just had another come up. So I’ll be gone 15 days out of the month. One of those days I get back at midnight then leave again at noon. That means I need to get A LOT of recipes done and get podcasts recorded early. Plus I’ll be gone for my birthday. And even though I’m not a birthday person, I always use my birthday as an excuse to get a special gluten free cake. So what now!? Celebrating your birthday the day after is stupid. It’s over. Until next year, my friend! Now you’re just eating cake for no reason.

So today, tomorrow, this weekend and into next week, I’m going to bust out so many new recipes for you guys, get a ton of outfit photos and posts ready to go, and get podcasts recorded so everything is ready and up to date no matter where I am in or out of the country! Because you guys are the best and I love you more than these cookies! But in the meantime, I’ve gotsta go. I’m coaching today, get food photos done, getting an outfit photoshoot done, then the best part of it all…going to Beauty and the Beast! Yayyyyyyyy!!!!

Strawberry Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

  • Yield: 15 cookies 1x




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together almond butter and maple sugar using a large spoon. Then add egg and mix again until well combined.
  3. Then add tapioca and coconut flour, baking soda, vanilla, salt and chocolate chunks then mix to combine.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out around 2 tablespoons of dough and make into a round ball. Place parchment paper lined baking sheet. This dough will create 15 cookies. Once you’ve placed all the dough onto the baking sheet, take a dried strawberry or two and press them slightly into each cookie.
  5. Place baking sheet into the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes until removing from baking sheet to place on cooling rack. If you try to remove these from the baking sheet early, they will come apart. So don’t be stupid here. Patience is a virtue!
  7. Eat up! (I sprinkled flake salt on top because I love salt on my cookies, but you don’t have to do that!)

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I love that you have discovered Theo Chocolate! I LOVE LOVE LOVE their bars! No crap, just pure ingredients. My favorites are the raspberry, orange, mint, 85%, and sea salt bars. During the holidays they were on sale for $1.50 per bar so stocked up and spent around $50…my husband looked at me like I was crazy when he found my secret stash. He will not think I am crazy this weekend because it’s his birthday so I’ll be making the double chocolate chip cookies for me, I mean him. All with Theo Chocolate.
    Thanks for all the great recipes, podcasts, workouts, outfits, pepping, motivation, thoughts, the list goes on and on, you do every day! I have made several of your recipes and have yet to found one we did not like. Whenever I try a new recipe for dinner that tastes awesome my husband always asks, “is this another one from that paleo girl?” Yup, sure is. Keep it up, you are awesome!

  2. Juli, before you consider your dog pampered, I present these facts: When we had our house built, we specified a long vertical window at the bottom of the stairs so the cat could sit and look out. And, we had a glass storm door put in with our regular front door so our dogs could see what’s going on in the neighborhood.

  3. Oh man these look good! I just found out I can’t do almonds. Do you think sun butter would be too runny to work?

  4. What can you sub for the maple sugar? Maple syrup or Agave? Real sugar (gasp!)? I’m surprised how little flour product these bad boys have. Going to test them out this weekend.

  5. I made these bad boys today …OMG…..they are amazing! Hardest part was waiting the 5 minutes for them to cool 🙂 Thanks for the great treat recipe, Juli!!!

  6. I made these cookies today for all my friends and they were a hit! Absolutely delicious, especiallly warm and gooey! Used Whole Foods fresh almond butter from the machine (which was roasted) and dried cherries (since they didn’t have strawberries) and they turned out great! Sooo good! Can’t wait to make them again!! Thanks Juli for being so diligent in your work and sharing with us every day!!

  7. Hi Juli! Thank you for all that you provide free to all your lovely followers. Just a quick thing, i’m trying to look at this recipe and there is an add that cuts off the directions. Ive even clicked on the add hoping it would go away and there is no X box to click. Not sure if you place them or they just pop up but just wanted to give you a heads up.

  8. Hi Juli!

    Silly question…can I used freeze dried strawberries? Will it have the same effect? Thanks for making me laugh during your Snapchats….you don’t have to clean up your language. Keep being you!

    Thanks, Danielle

      1. I used freeze dried strawberries because I thought they were the same thing. I now know they are not even close!!!! The cookies are great BUT the strawberries burned where they were sticking out of the cookie and they are just hard and crunchy in the cookie. I ended up digging them out of all the cookies. The rest of the cookie is wonderful! Can you use fresh strawberries???

  9. Hello Juli!!

    Loved this recipe ????. Would love to know if I can omit the tapioca or use an alternative, maybe more coconut flour or maybe almond flour?

    Tapioca and arrowroot are very expensive where I live so would love to know if you have any suggestions ????.

    Thank you, Juli!

  10. I finally got around to making these cookies and they are amazing!!!!!! Only difference was I used the enjoy it life chocolate chunks! Holy yum!!! I couldn’t stop eating them!

  11. Absolutely delicious!! I didn’t have dried strawberries, so I put in dried blueberries, so yummy. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly, but my cookies didn’t look as fluffy as yours, they are really really flat. Any thoughts on what I might’ve done wrong?

    1. it could have to do with your nut butter. if it is a super runny nut butter, it tends to spread more. if it’s thick, it tends to puff up a little more like mine.

  12. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made this recipe. I love these. I always have Costco’s mixed nut butter on hand so that has become a staple in place of plain almond butter. I swap out the strawberries for whatever dried fruit I happen to have on hand and they always turn out so so delicious and they are a very pretty cookie as well. Thanks so much for this recipe.
