Coconut Almond Flour “Cookies”

I am the world’s best (or is it worst?) picker. I love having nibbles and bites and picks of everything and anything. Mind you, it drives my family absolutely bonkers, but I can’t help myself. I just love sampling a little of everything here and there. So when I came across this recipe for bite size healthy alternative cookies, I was thrilled. And Cruzzie loves them too (he is also a picker and nibbler). It is the perfect snack to grab and have in each hand as I leave the house. A little perfect portable pick-me-up. Also — you can add whatever you want to make them more special and sweet. Isn’t it fun to change things up here and there? Peanut butter vs almond butter? M&M’s or chocolate covered raisins? Bare naked? No matter what you decide to throw into these cookies, they end up delicious.

The cookies are perfectly little formed balls. When you mix the dough, it is easiest to do so with your hands. So if you live in NYC, make sure you wash your hands after the subway!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  And don’t forget, there’s still time to enter the Josie Bra/Tonique DVD giveaway.
