Paleo Brownie Bites

OK, this started out as just a treat for Charlie but as we each tried one we found ourselves going back for seconds and thirds. These little things were just too delicious!

I found the recipe on PaleoGrub. Who doesn't love any dessert that's done in no time and requires no baking?  If you can find the will power to wait until these are chilled, you'll find that they taste even better after they're cold.

Making them even sweeter, the recipe calls for just 5 ingredients! While the creator of the recipes rolls them into fewer than a dozen balls, I'm able to get nearly 20 by making smaller balls. You could probably also press them into an 8x8 pan and then slice them and serve them as straight up brownies. Either way, you're bound to love them!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

It seems almost cruel to ask a little guy to skip something as delicious as chocolate chip cookies. After searching for recipes that sounded like they'd be delicious and wouldn't require me to spend a small fortune on ingredients, I found this one on Yoh Can Cook. You Can, Too.

These cookies are among the best I've ever tasted. The only downside is that each batch only makes about 15-16 -- not a big deal  -- until you taste one and then want two dozen more! 

The coconut oil in this recipe gives the cookie a delicious flavor. Because I'm not a huge fan of chocolate, I'm going to experiment with replacing these dark chocolate chips them with raisins. I'll keep you posted on the results.
