Y'all know your girl has a major sweet tooth.. 

and because of that, I try to re make me favourite child hood treats with a more 'cleaner' & paleo approach.. mainly so I can have them whenever I want and don't have to worry about feeling sluggish or having a sugar crash later.  

So if you're looking for a light snack/dessert thats high in protein and satisfies you're sugar cravings, these cookies are the way to go! + they are so easy to make with little ingredients (better for the gut) and literally stuff you would already have in your pantry!  

Lately I have been making a batch of these and putting them in containers in the fridge and serving them with coconut yoghurt and berries! Tiff (my house mate) has already eaten 1 batch in a few hours.. thats how light and flavour packed they are haha. Some times instead of the choc chips I actually bake it with some loving earth salted caramel chocolate instead and wowza! but thats only when i'm feeling super fancy and want to spend an arm and a leg on a chocolate block lol.
