Cookie Monsters

So hubby and I have been craving cookies like craaaazy!
Like seriously. This is how I feel sometimes.
One difficult thing about living a healthy lifestyle is definitely cravings. I LOVE eating clean & I LOVE my fruits and veggies! But living without the sweets is hard for me. I AM a girl. ;) I have learned that depriving yourself too much can be a bad thing! Then you end up like the cookie monster. Eating a bazillion cookies in one sitting because you haven't had one in so long. Keeping these clean, healthy little treats in the house really helps us cookie monsters. ;)
I have also been in a baking mood lately. It must be this big kitchen we are enjoying right now! Brett is going to be thrilled when he comes home from work, because I have had myself a little cookie baking party. :)
Today, I tried two different cookie recipes from The Detoxinista. Oh my. They are delicious AND guilt free. I am super excited to share them with you!
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies:
**I used agave nectar instead of honey because I like the taste of it better. Other than that I followed the recipe.**
I have made the Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies two other times before and they are Brett's FAV. He said, "Can you bake these a lot? Lets have these in the house all the time." Sounds like a winner to me!
Double Chocolate Cookie (Grain Free):
These were my personal favorite! I am a chocolate-overload kind of girl though. ;) These cookies are the perfect treat if you ask me.
Go to and check it out for the recipes!


  1. Your blog is super cute Carol Ann! Love the recipes! I will definitely have to try them out! I'm glad you added that Brett likes them because boys can be picky when it comes to healthy treats lol so hopefully Lance will like them too!

  2. Haha yes they are! I kind of don't tell him they are healthy until after he eats them ;) That's how you can really tell that they are good. Let me know what y'all think!
