As Fall approaches and our young ones are headed back to school in non-traditional form, a healthy AND tasty snack is necessary to alleviate the trying times that are ahead of us. This month, we would like to share this easy-to-make cookie recipe - fun for you and for the kids. These cookies are Paleo diet-friendly, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and vegan. They contain better ingredients for your teeth than mainstream desserts, without compromising any taste bud satisfaction. These cookies are a great treat for your kids to take to school and enjoy at home with you.
