Every once in a while we need some kind of treat. Too often that’s a deep fried donut, or a brownie from your local coffee shop, or cookies from the grocery store. That’s fine sometimes, but don’t let their convenience overcome your good health. If you are seeking a sweet tooth satisfying, healthy goodie, I have a good recipe to share.

I got this recipe from Bakerita.com. These Paleo chocolate chip cookies are delicious, and use healthy alternative ingredients that won’t make your feel like you are cheating your diet. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
