Who says you can’t have cookies at Christmas, just because you’re following a Paleo diet?
Many of us dread the holiday season. Even those of us who don’t necessarily restrict what or how we eat tend to anticipate a season of either weight gain, or testing the limits of our willpower as break rooms fill up with cakes, cookies and candy.
Well I have good news for you: you don’t have to feel deprived any more. Just hold on until you can make it home to make this Paleo treat for yourself.
Once you’ve accomplished that, the only willpower you’ll need will be to stop yourself from eating them all at once. Keep in mind these cookies are sweetened with maple syrup and be sure to check labels of the nut butter you’re using to know how much additional hidden sugar you are consuming.
Memories of Cookies
For many of us, fond memories of mom pulling a tray of cookies out of the oven is a cherished part of our childhood.
Or maybe your mom made those chocolate oatmeal no-bake cookies that sat on the counter to mold into chocolatey goodness, staring you down to steal one, two or three poop cookies, as we so tenderly called them. :)
No one wants to take away those memories, even if those cookies were filled with gluten and sugar.
Instead, start a new tradition this year with cookies that are made from wholesome ingredients, but taste so good, your kids never have to know they’re healthy.
A Bite of Chocolate Air
These cookies have the perfect combination of soft and chewy on the inside, and just a little crispy on the outside.
That wonderful texture, combined with the creamy nut butter and slightly sweet chocolate, help to create a cookie that is irresistible.
