Kitchen Sink Oatmeal Cookies – oatmeal cookies filled with everything but the kitchen sink! Chocolate chunks, white chocolate chips, cinnamon chips, walnuts, raisins, and coconut!

When we moved I realized I had a lot of mostly empty bags of chocolate chips.

A lot.

Same goes for pecans, shredded coconut, almond meal, bottles of vanilla, all the stuff I always think I’m out of when I’m out the store and apparently am never actually out of it.

Plus, 15 packages of almond bark even though I only use almond bark once a year for crockpot candy…? I don’t know, guys.

I guess everyone I know is getting crockpot candy for Christmas next year.

M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies – soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! 

M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies - soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! I make these over and over!

I’m just not a cookie person.

I would choose cake, a slice of pie, a handful of gummy bears, pretty much any other sweet over a cookie.

The exception to that rule is the one or 2 times a year when the only thing I can think about is grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies.

You know the ones, right?

They’re super soft and somehow every grocery store in the country makes them exactly the same way?

Yeah, those.

When I get a random craving for one of them, nothing fixes it but getting those cookies.

I can remember leaving my house in a snowstorm in Colorado because I needed these cookies to survive the day.

Fritos and grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies are the only things that I was ever willing to leave my house for during a snowstorm.

Y’all remember those days? When I was too scared to drive in the snow so we would walk to school every day? Granted, it was a short walk but still. I was terrified to drive in the snow for the first several years we were there.

Gluten Free Iced Orange Cookies - the perfect gluten free holiday cookie recipe! Tender cookies with orange zest and topped with a delicious sweet orange glaze.

We had parent teacher conferences last month and during one of them my blog came up and we started talking about how I do a lot of paleo stuff and the teacher mentioned that she and her husband are gluten free so when her students bring in homemade treats for her, she typically has to pass them on to other teachers.

And I don’t know if I’ve told you guys but I love all my kids’ teachers this year. I love them.

So obviously gluten free treats needed to be made for her.

Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies - the perfect sweet and salty cookie! Bacon is quickly candied in the oven and then added to the best chocolate chip cookies recipe!

This post originally published on September 30, 2011 and was updated October 23, 2017. It’s one of my oldest and favorite recipes. 

The first time I ever made these Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies – over 6 years ago – was the first time I realized what a food blogger weirdo I was.

Food bloggers love bacon. Okay, yeah, everyone loves bacon but food bloggers love to put bacon in places where bacon usually doesn’t belong. Cookies, ice cream, rice krispies treats, pretty much everything.

I mean, I have a bacon egg and cheese sandwich on a glazed doughnut pretty much every Saturday morning of my life.

And you can think that’s weird but I have made everyone in my life try them and no one’s complained yet.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies will be your new favorites, for all time. Paleo or not, these babies are gorgeous!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies - the BEST paleo cookies! Even the non-paleo people in your life will love these!

Meet my new favorite cookie.

I’m having this thing with coconut this summer. It started with this peanut coconut sauce that I was making daily and putting on everything and now I’ve moved onto cookies.

I mean, can you blame me? Coconut and chocolate is such a perfect combination.

Naturally, I’m obsessed with these Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies.

I have been making a batch almost every week and then I’ll make some paleo ice cream and I’ll count down the minutes until the kids go to bed so I can sandwich the ice cream between these cookies and enjoy them in total silence.

That’s totally normal, right?
