We are lucky enough to have another guest post from Louise at PaleoMagazine.com. Louise just released her new cookbook, Essential Paleo Cookbook, which comes with amazing recipes and a few of awesome bonuses – click here to check it out!
If you like cookies, you might be tempted to make these all the time! However, one of tricks for not eating the whole batch of cookies at once is to freeze them after they have cooled. I can then ration them out for my daughter one at a time over the period of a month or two. However, during the holidays you might want to package them up and distribute them to friends and neighbors to share some love from your own kitchen. You might even want to host a Paleo cookie exchange?
Despite the name, I don’t actually recommend making these cookies “all the time,” even if you find yourself wanting to. They’re just too yummy, and it’s hard to stop eating them. For sure, there are a lot of great Paleo cookie recipes, but Jeremy (my husband) and I can’t resist the fresh-baked yumminess of chocolate chip cookies every once in a while. If you make these, I highly recommend the Enjoy Life chocolate chips, which have much better ingredients than 99% of chocolate chips you can find. (And they’re even sold in Wal-Mart now!)
