You guys. This is it. This is the Mac-Nut Cookie recipe I’ve been talking about for months! It’s here, we finally have it…(Insert mental image of me caressing the recipe like Gollum caresses the Ring…my Precious). I am so excited to get to share this recipe from The Paleo Kitchen with you! I was so lucky to be able to hang out (eat) with Juli and George while they wrote this cookbook. I was there to (eat) provide mimosas and moral support. The two M’s needed for any cookbook endeavor.
All eating, I mean kidding aside, I am super proud of these two. They worked so incredibly hard on this cookbook and deserve all the success in the world. Hurry up and get here already June! You can pre-order The Paleo Kitchen here, here, and here. Run, don’t walk, to the store to get all the ingredients to make these cookies. I promise you they are incredible. I ate like 2 (more like 5) and couldn’t stop. In fact I think they had to forcibly remove me from the kitchen. And by forcibly I mean they told me to make another round of mimosas.
