I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

I’ve made Gina’s Chocolate Chunk {Paleo} Cookies many times; John, Lily, and I all absolutely love them. They’re easy to make, call for healthy ingredients, and taste fabulous. I rarely make a recipe more than once, so the fact that the cookies have become a staple in our house tells you just how awesome they are!

I tossed a couple handfuls of shredded coconut into the dough on a whim the last time I made a batch, and it was a great addition to an already delicious cookie.

The flavor profile is the same as Almond Joy candy bars, but the ingredients are so much cleaner. I adore the chocolate-almond-coconut combination, and each flavor is discernible in these cookies.

The cookies are soft & chewy with just a hint of crispiness around the edges; the perfect cookie texture, in my opinion.

Because there are no eggs in the cookies, you can sneak as many swipes of the uncooked dough as you want. Safe bowl licking for the win (<- I guess the cool kids would write FTW).
