Christmas is over but it is still winter here in the States. This still means 3 things, possible snow, keeping warm and of course food. Cookies are an important part of the kitchen and baking increases in popularity over the winter months. This recipe for Paleo Snow Balls is easy and these treats are fun to bake, which can serve as a sweet treat as well as a lovely decoration on your gluten free, paleo dinner table.
The contributor of this recipe is Rossy Neame. She is full of ideas and occupies every spare second with exciting hobbies. Her website primalyum.co.uk was created a few years ago when she discovered that she has gluten intolerance. Today, it is a place when one can get travel inspiration and can find easy recipes for a healthy lifestyle. Rossy believes that happiness exists within us and being healthy is the first step to a constant smile on our faces. She also loves hiking (like me), yoga, and during the weekends she paints in her studio and creates mini-sculptures using wood, moss and fungus. The rest of the time she works as a 3D artist in the biggest film studio in the Balkans, situated in the mountain near the capital city of Bulgaria, Sofia.
Thank you Rossy Neame of Primal Yum!
