Adorable paleo gingerbread cookies made with coconut and almond flour. These grain free and gluten free cookies are the perfect treat for the holidays!

It’s day 3 of cookie week and I’m loving today’s spicy paleo gingerbread cookies!

When I was young I never really appreciated the deliciousness of gingerbread cookies. I was never one who enjoyed molasses cookies either. The flavor of molasses just wasn’t in the cards for a girl obsessed with pumpkin pie.

The softest grain free snickerdoodles with hints of cinnamon + sugar in every bite. These will be your new go-to snickerdoodle recipe!

I’m laying on our couch watching Tony eat a huge plate of my latest creation: vegan tofu nachos (recipe comin’ soon). The best part is that he has no idea that I made them with a healthy cheese sauce made from nuts, or that the ‘meat’ is actually tofu. This is exactly why I love doing what I do: I love helping people eat healthier and more nutritious without sacrificing taste.

And sometimes you need a cookie that’s the best of both worlds: both sweet and a little more nutritious.

I’m going to keep all posts this week pretty short and sweet, which means we can avoid talking about my obsession with Jelena (justin + selena getting back together) and get straight to these delicious recipes.

November has arrived. Which means my wedding is almost here. I can’t believe it. I still remember the day we got engaged like it was yesterday.

No bake superfood brownie energy bars packed with pistachios, pecans, walnuts, chia seeds, coconut and dried fruit! Topped with dark chocolate and sea salt. The perfect nutritious healthy dessert.

I’m sitting here watching the latest season of Stranger Things, staring at photos of these brownies and thinking how much I absolutely adore them. I’ve made them at least 10 times within the past month and still can’t get enough.

So I’ll just get this out now:

YOU NEED THEM IN YOUR LIFE! BADLY.

As you may or may not know, I had the BEST weekend ever with all of my bridesmaids for my bachelorette party in Scottsdale, AZ. It was such a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend full of amazing conversations, girl time, hiking, tacos, margaritas, guac + all the chips. I swear to you, my belly needs a break from tequila for a while.

Just keepin’ it real.

Guysssss. Can you believe that there’s only about 6 weeks to go ’til my wedding?

I have to admit that planning our wedding has been a weight of anxiety, excitement and anticipation hanging over my head the past 6 months. While I’m certainly looking forward to our day, I’m most looking forward to just being married. You know or whatever married people do. Netflix and chill? Travel the world? Slurp noodles like in Lady and the Tramp?
