So if you’re anything like me, you pretty regularly get a hunkering for a good ol’ cookie. But cookies don’t appear out of thin air. And sometimes you don’t have all the right ingredients. And god knows that during a Southern summer you don’t want to turn on your oven if you can help it.
And this is why Kaeli-O-Kookies rock! Cravings can hit you like a truck, and instead of reaching for that pint of Ben and Jerry’s (which I have been known to do 🙂 guilty as charged) you can satisfy your sweet tooth with a freakin delicious Paleo cookie. Now if you’ve ever tried to come up with a recipe for a Paleo cookie then you know that it’s a really tough thing to nail down, but Emily from Kaeli-O-Kookies has done just that. The Kookies are dense and flavorful, but also nice and soft.
There are 3 flavors: Coco Chip, Brownie Mac and Honey Berry.
- The Coco Chip is like a classic chocolate chip cookie with a hint of shredded coconut. There’s just enough sea salt to balance the sweetness out and give a little of that salty-sweet taste. They aren’t crispy at all, but that doesn’t bother me! I love that they’re moist and soft, they kind of remind me of something in between a traditional gluten filled chocolate chip cookie and a Lara bar. I should also note that since the Coco Chip includes Enjoy Life chocolate chips, they aren’t 100% paleo, but the paleo police can just get lost.
- The Brownie Mac is the least sweet of all 3, so this one is for you folks that don’t like things too sweet. The cocoa powder and sea salt mellow out the sweetness of the maple syrup. I love the smooth crunch (is that an oxymoron?) of the macadamia nuts!
- The Honey Berry is my favorite (just barely though! It’s a close race). It like an updated, hipper oatmeal raisin cookie. It’s super moist and has a very strong honey flavor (hence the name). In my humble opinion, the raisins, dried cranberries and walnuts provide the perfect balance of flavors and textures. It’s also the one shown in the picture below!
Seriously, getcho hands on some of these and you won’t be sorry. You can buy them here!
