PALEO SALTED CHOCOLATE TAHINI COOKIES

I’ve been on SUCH a chocolate kick lately and I’m not mad about it. I’m so, so happy I listened to my body a few months ago and reincorporated it into my life again after giving it up for so long (it’s an iffy food on SCD which I was following strictly when I first got diagnosed with ulcerative colitis – now I’m following it more loosely).

PALEO LAVENDER LEMON SCONES

As many of you probably saw on Instagram, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on Whidbey Island, my home away from home. When I think of my childhood I think of Whidbey Island – beach trips with my family, bonfires by the ocean, eating locally harvested seafood, going to the farmers market – it’s always held such a special place in my heart.

Eating these paleo cake pops make me feel like a kid again and I LOVE that. I think we all need a little help getting back to our childish roots once in awhile!

And now with these paleo double chocolate coffee cookies in the picture? My morning coffee ritual just got a whole lot better.
