Need a truly delicious paleo recipe to make with the kids? Try this one. Kids will love to help measure, mix and scoop for the whole family. Very little sweetener, nutty and crunchy. Encouraging your kids to assist in the kitchen early on teaches them to like the food and appreciate the kitchen early in life. Talk about a truly unique and fun bonding experience. Also, what kid doesn’t want to make cookies?
Just because you are eating healthy doesn’t mean the days of the cookie jar are out of the question. Fill up the cookie jar with these cookies and some “no oatmeal” cookies and you will be set for life, or almost!
This recipe is extremely easy and you can freeze these cookies like I do. I make plenty in advance and bring out a few more as the stack gets low. It sure saves me lots of time. This is a great recipe to have on hand for Santa too for when he comes in December. Or make these and pass them along to neighbors as a friendly holiday gift. Nobody will turn down a paleo cookie box!
