hallows eve

Did you guys know that we’ve been lied to our entire lives? It’s true. I’ve never thought much about  the little nickname our cherished Halloween has – All Hallow’s Eve. Eve of what you ask? The REAL Halloween apparently!!

And I quote ..

It’s liiiiike, why did I even stomp through snow as tall as I was looking like a fool as a “ballerina apparently from the arctic” during the Halloween blizzard of ’91? I don’t know you guys, let’s just focus on cookies.

almond peanut butter cookies

I made these super gooey treats just last night in hopes to enjoy them tonight while eating popcorn and watching scary movies and they are already practically gone. The great thing about this batter is that you can easily add any addition you’d like. I added a touch of real almond extract, but you could add almond slivers, walnuts, or chocolate chips. Did I mention they’re made with coconut flour instead of the regular stuff?
