Chewy Paleo (ish) coconut cookies


The ish: a dessert in disguise.  Don’t be fooled by the natural ingredients in this recipe and make it ok to eat the whole batch to satisfy your sweet cravings.  I add these types of recipes to the site to either help transition your kids to eating a paleo diet or to help you make better cheat choices.  These to me would be considered a cheat,  a healthier choice than eating a whole bag of oreo cookies but would still have an affect on your  blood sugar levels.  Convincing yourself that “paleo” cookies are good for you and should be part of your daily diet will never help you with your sugar cravings.  If you find yourself looking for something sweet after your meal even though a few minute prior you swear you couldn’t of eaten another bite of your meal because you were so full.   It’s probably from a habit that was formed years and years ago.  Try changing that pattern and replacing that habit with another like a cup of tea or lemon water also having an adequate amount of healthy fats during your meal – fat’s satiety signal to your brain may help you stay away from those dessert dragons.
