I think I tend to romanticize the Paleo diet. I imagine our ancestors out there in the wilderness, the men hunting wild game, the women gathering nuts and fruit, and coming together at night to cook a wholesome meal.
Of course, I have no idea how this actually worked. And come to think of it, if you gathered pecans one day, you probably wouldn’t be gathering coconut the next (because you know, geography). So perhaps my romantic notions are a tad skewed. Regardless though, I remain convinced that the healthiest thing we can ever do for ourselves is just eat real food. These cookies are loaded with your favorite gatherer instincts–my go-to mix-ins are pumpkin seeds, dates, chia seeds, and pecans.
Speaking of instincts: when I get the itch to bake, it’s hard to suppress! But eating real food doesn’t allow for much baking at all (hint: sugar and flour are not real foods). These totally satisfy that craving!
I eat eggs and an avocado most days for breakfast. But the truth is, there are days where I don’t have time to make eggs and I really just want a grab-and-go breakfast. When little feet fill this house, my mornings are going to get a whole lot more hectic. Enter this recipe: a wholesome, protein-packed, low sugar, satisfying breakfast without the guilt.
