2013: It’s a New Year, So Have a Cookie!

1 Jan

Happy New Year! Today is day 1 of a brand new year, and this year is the first time since 1987 when a year had four different numbers! Cool, huh???

I decided that on January 1st, 2013, that I would also go on a Baking Adventure, so I went to Whole Foods and bought ingredients to bake some paleo chocolate chip cookies!

By the way, I got the recipe from this site, though I decided to get chocolate chips instead of chunks because, well, they were cheaper! I also pasted the recipe on the body of this blog post to make it easier for y’all.


Here are the ingredients for some paleo baking!


Wet and dry ingredients.


Mixed in the chocolate chips, then mixed everything all together!


Into the oven they go!


Fresh out of the oven. Smell was DIVINE!


TADA! 1st ever batch of paleo chocolate chip cookies!
