Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies with Cassava Flour {Nut Free} | The Paleo  Running Momma

Nothing brings family together like baking, and campfire cookies are way easier than you think. Here’s how it works; start out by gathering all ingredients needed for the cookies. These could be chocolate chip, peanut butter, or even snicker doodles!

Next you’ll need a spatula, cookie sheet, and aluminum foil. If you have a rack that will fit over your fire pit than you can set the cookie tray right on top, but a few stones to build support are a great substitute as well.

Place your cookie dough of choice on your tray and wrap the tray of cookie dough in aluminum to get perfect, golden cookies in just 15-20 minutes. Remember to keep the cookies close to the fire and the flame low. Super hot glowing coals is the ideal heat source for making camp fire cookies. Keeping the flame low will ensure evenly baked cookies.
