paleo cookies!

last week i had my first attempt at making paleo cookies! turned out pretty good for a first run ;)

i combined a banana, egg, coconut milk, coconut oil, almond milk, almond butter, vanilla extract, lots of coconut flakes,  nuts (forgot what exactly i threw in there! haha), cocoa powder, raisins and chopped up dark chocolate.

they turned out more like macaroons ;)

they didnt seem to have enough sweet kick since i was avoiding using sugar so i fixed it by using a natural sugar - maple syrup! i dug some holes in the center added maple syrup and some salt. apparently salt really helps! here's how they look after the adjustment - now lava macaroons!

they were totally yummy after sitting in the fridge and soaking up the maple syrup!! :D

im working on perfecting the recipe so i will keep ya'll posted ;)
