Wellness Wednesday: Paleo Friendly Coconut Banana Cookies


Hi blog fam! It's been a whole week since I've blogged, and quite frankly it was nice to take a social media break. Don't worry.... this girl is back on the blog! #missedyall . 

Since it's been raining straight for 30 days (thanks Pennsylvania *** hints of sarcasm) I've been doing lots of cooking in my kitchen to pass the time. I love trying out new recipes that I find on Pinterest, and modify them to fit my palette. Recently I came across this paleo friendly cookie recipe, and decided to give it a try. I added my own spin on it of course, and came up with something I think you'll love.

What I love about this recipe is that it's super easy to make, and has almost a "banana muffin" taste. One thing I wish I did to sweeten up this recipe more was to add some chocolate chips into it because this GIRL-HAS-GOT-TO-LIVE. 

If you ever try any of my recipes I would love to hear what you thought of it in the comments. Happy Wednesday y'all! PS big shout out to my bday girl AE in Texas. AE was my first friend in Texas, and I owe so much to her because of all the kindness and love she showed me. Miss you AE, and wish I could have celebrated with you.
