My goals for this Christmas Season are simple 1.) Don’t go totally broke buying Christmas decorations and dog sweaters. 2.) Find healthy alternatives whenever possible so I don’t start 2017 feeling like a puffer fish. Simple, right?! 


Welp, I decided that this Paleo Coconut Macaroon recipe was a great way to celebrate National Cookie Day without all of the added sugar. I love simple recipes, too!

I think macaroons are such a beautiful cookie. You could dress them up for your next holiday potluck by adding a few Christmas colored sprinkles after you drizzle the chocolate. Or wrap them individually in cellophane with a pretty bow as a cute, healthy sweet treat gift! 

Do you have a favorite cookie recipe you would love to adapt to a healthier version?
