The holiday season is such a cookie baking time of year. Just because you choose to live a Paleo lifestyle doesn’t mean you can’t join in the sweet treat kitchen fun. Here’s a simple and delicious cookie recipe we first shared last year…
I have always loved baking more than cooking, but when I switched to a Paleo lifestyle, I thought my baking days were over. I mean, how do you bake without wheat flour anyway?
Well, thank goodness for geniuses like Bill and Hayley from Primal Palate (and dozens more) for coming up with amazing treats to bake using coconut and almond flour. I tried this recipe out for my Bible study group, but of course I had to taste test them before I served them. To. Die. For. That’s all I need to say. Try it out yourself!
I just followed the recipe as printed in their cookbook. Start with soaking the bacon in the maple syrup and then baking it.
While that’s baking, finish the remaining steps in recipe and then bake! Mine didn’t turn out flat like the cookbook showed, but instead came out fluffy and irregular. I actually loved them this way because they were soft!
These were a HUGE hit with my bible study and a HUGE hit with me. I think I ended up eating 10 of them!
