Coconut Sugar Snickerdoodle Cookies {Paleo}

Paleo Coconut Sugar Almond Flour Cookies

I'm posting this recipe today for my own selfish reasons.
Mainly because I love these cookies and I don't want to lose the recipe!

Like many of you I've been trying to eat healthy for the new year, but I also need a
sweet treat every now and then. Like every day :)

Coconut sugar snickerdoodle cookies are grain-free, dairy-free, Paleo and delicious!
They are made with almond flour, coconut sugar, coconut oil, one egg and just a few
other pantry ingredients. I've made them twice this month and I'm sure I'll be making
them again soon!

After the cookies cool I place them in the freezer in an air-tight container and then pop
one in my lunch bag for work. They are the perfect ending to a healthy lunch!

You're the Balm Free Valentine Printable

Remember making Valentine boxes in elementary school? Carefully covering shoe or
cereal boxes with construction paper, heart cut-outs and stickers. Do kids still do that?

The best part was the actual Valentine's Day party when you stuffed your faces with sugar
cookies, red Kool-Aid, conversation hearts and red lollipops with white sugary hearts!
Once you were all hyped up on sugar you got to go around the classroom and place a
Valentine card in all of your classmates homemade mail boxes. Wasn't that the best!

Cupid's Crunch Chex Snack Mix

Valentine's Day Chex Snack Mix

Chex snack mixes are one of my favorite things to make for holidays.
They are quick and easy to make and everyone loves them! Since Valentine's Day will be
here before we know it I decided to share a festive and fun snack mix that I like to refer
to as Cupid's Crunch.

Cupid's Crunch Snack Mix is made up of popcorn, Chex cereal, pretzels, candy and
fun Valentine's Day sprinkles drizzled with white chocolate - yum!

Meatless Monday Quick and Easy Dinner

This post is in partnership with Moms Meet. As always, all opinions are my own.

Happy Monday! How was your weekend?
Mine was super busy once again. Our house is still a mess from the process of removing
carpet and installing hardwood floors and I've been doing a lot of painting. We decided
to hire a professional to finish things up and hopefully that will happen this week. I will
be so glad to get our house back in order!

Vegetarian Lentil Chili for Two

Well hello there. It's been a minute, but it's nice to be back!

Right after New Year's we started the process of installing hardwood flooring in seven
rooms of our house, so it's been total chaos around here. We've been ripping up carpet,
moving furniture, emptying closets and painting. Our house is a mess, but it's going
to be beautiful once it's all complete! I've been sharing some of the progress on my
Instagram stories and will share more here later.
