Paleo Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies for Dad! (Gluten-free)

Tropical Paradise Cookies

I created this recipe and shared it with some friends at my birthday/Easter potluck celebration. They were a hit, especially when nice and warm out of the oven! These cookies are gluten-free, grain-free (no flours), and vegan. Are they taste-free too you ask? No, quite the contrary. You just can’t go wrong with the richness […]
