This morning, right after I went to bed, Fitbomb and the kids decided to tackle a cooking project to ring in the New Year. Specifically, they made primal chocolate chip cookies from one of my favorite blogs, The Food Lovers’ Primal Palate.

The grain-free cookies are made with almond flour, coconut oil, chocolate chips, eggs, maple syrup, baking soda, and vanilla extract. Yep, that’s my sister’s homemade vanilla extract. She’s a DIY cooking maven, no doubt.

My kids were so excited to make the cookies, they both patiently waited their turn to stir the batter…

…and it didn’t devolve into fisticuffs.

Here’s the finished dough…

… and the freshly baked cookies right out of the oven:

How’d they taste? I don’t know (big pat on my back) but the kids loved them!

I seem to be missing out on a lot of good eats while I’m sleeping the day away.

However, I’m so effing glad I was sleeping this morning or I would have cheated on the Whole30 without a batting an eyelash. 

Trust me, this guy is a great salesman:

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
