How To: Coconut Almond Butter Cookies
We thought a perfect way to kickoff Monday was with a healthy cookie recipe. Jake and I make these ALL the time at home. Coconut almond butter sweets will make your heart [+ stomach] happy. These were included in my list of desserts when I wrote about about what I typically eat in a day. Happy eating!
