Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's no secret that I love sweets, I know I post about salads and allll the healthy eats on Instagram but I also LOVE me some yummy treats. It's all about balance after all, right? I absolutely love creating healthy treats and finding the healthier versions for my family to enjoy.

These Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of my family's favorite treats. And one that I feel good about making and eating. With no refined sugars or processed flours, they are basically calories that don't count. Okay, I guess it doesn't work that way. But they are way better for you than the average cookie. So go ahead a enjoy them guilt free.

These cookies are best right out of the oven...I dare you to only eat one! And if we have any left I love to freeze them to eat in case of a chocolate emergency.

Creating a healthier lifestyle doesn't mean missing out on yummy treats...it just means using better-good-for-you-ingredients and being mindful of what you are putting in your body. The ladies in Transform: Nutrition Bootcamp are learning how to do that and I love seeing them transform not only their lives but also their family's life.
