Look I’m just gonna be real honest here. Either you are gonna be my new BFF or you are going to unfollow me…all based entirely on this recipe. It’s not egg free, or nut free, or nightshade free. It has all the stuff that dreams are made of but it is NOT what cavemen ate. Now, I honestly think they would have but that is beside the point.
These are a treat. This recipe is not for healing autoimmune disease or for reversing anything chronic ever- ok it does reverse chronic boredom and ridiculous cravings, but that might not count in the world of “healing”.
But if you just really need something to treat yoself that isn’t white flour and bleached sugar, I invite you into my world to try these. I am pretty sure if you aren’t allergic or the paleo police, we are going to be lifelong pals. But you’ll just have to let me know!!!
These are Paleo Potato Chip Cookies. They are pretty much my new reason for living. I mean sure my kids and husband are great, but these, these are my everything. Gosh I’m dramatic. I blame the book launch week for Down South Paleo – I am all sorts of messed up. Thank goodness for new cookie recipes to bring life into perspective!
