Good morning everyone! I’m so excited to have Suzanne from Strands of My Life sharing a delicious recipe from her cookbook, Paleo Treats! Paleo Treats came about as part of her research in finding the root of her lifelong digestive issues. Paleo Treats is a cookbook of healthy, grain-free recipes that will satisfy that need for something sweet without eating any sugar. Every recipe in her cookbook is grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and NUT-FREE! I know this is important for so many of you who need to stay away from nuts.
Paleo Treats is just ONE of the many cookbooks included in the Fall into Health Autumn sale. The sale includes 47 e-books (Paleo cookbooks and health/wellness books), 3 online classes (one is a Paleo cooking class), 2 meal plans (both are Paleo), and so much more. CLICK HERE to see what it all entails and check out all the delicious cookbooks!
And now please welcome my friend Suzanne from Stands of My Life as she, graciously, shares a beautiful recipe from Paleo Treats!
Thank you so much, Jackie, for having me on your lovely blog. These are the simplest of cookies to put together as long as you have some date puree stored away in your fridge. Otherwise you will need a food processor to grind the dates up until they form a mush. I soak my dates in boiling water for an hour first and this makes it easier to puree. These are healthy little drops of heaven for when you need that sweet hit.
