I’m not going to call them paleo cookies because they do contain sugar…you have to have sugar in cookies!?!?
But, they are pretty darn close to paleo.
I read recently that when your body ingests sugar, it doesn’t know when to stop eating. It’s not until the fiber or protein fills you up that you decide that you’re full enough to stop.*
Blessing in disguise! Coconut flour is high in fiber….and as an added bonus, it’s gluten free. Awesome!
Don’t be alarmed when you try these cookies if you’ve never eaten anything made with coconut flour. It’s a little grainy and makes you thirsty. So grab a glass of milk!!! 🙂
