Please understand that I know these breakfast cookies may look a little ugly. I get it. But they taste awesome. Just a fact.

I miss Jackson SO much. I’m just leaving Austin this morning to head back home and kiss his face over and over until bites me with his little gremlin teeth. He loves to do that. And by the way, Jackson is my dog if you didn’t know who that man name was. He’s still a puppy, not yet a man. That could be a song.

So Austin was amazing. I’m going to do a summary post tomorrow about all of it, don’t you worry, but I can at least do some summarizing. I ate a lot. I hung out with awesome paleo people. Some people were annoying. I mean, it’s the paleo community. It’s full of intense hippies. You’re probably an intense hippy, aren’t you? Judging. Jk jk. I like the smell of lavender sometimes, too. Back to my point. I shopped a lot. I talked to a lot of people. I did a cooking demo. I drank barely any water. I spoke on a panel that I so did not want to speak on. I had more dairy then I’ve had in the entire year. I laughed so hard I cried. Twice. I packed my bag home with 4 chocolate bars. I went to an awesome CrossFit gym and did a super painful workout. I sweated into my eyes while working out. And I stayed in a super fun condo with 7 other people. The coffee table was a giant drum. No lie.

I’m so ready to be home. I made the bf send me multiple pictures every day of the puppy. He’s growing up so fast and I’m missing it all! I was hoping that by the time I got home, he would be perfectly potty trained. But it doesn’t look like it’s going to turn out like that. I think we will still have to work at it. Poor kid. He just likes to be independent and prove that independence through urinating where he pleases. That just ain’t gon’ work.

Speaking of ain’t gon’ work, I’m a bit annoyed with United Airlines right now. I usually stick with them because they tend to almost always have wi-fi, their flights have always been on time with me, and they have seemed to always have a decent amount of space in their planes. I was wrong. This time around, I was forced on one of their United Express planes that looks like it should be taking me from Denver to Colorado Springs, instead of all the way to Austin. They are so small that only a purse fits in the bin overhead and you can literally smell the breath of the person sitting next to you. And based on my experience on this trip, these little dinky planes do not tend to be on time. I’ve never really had a flight be late with United and then once I was lucky enough to ride on the United Express, all my flights were late. I feel like this happens because they are the little, nerdy planes so they get pushed around by the bigger ones and can only come out to play when all the bigs ones are gone. Well you know what United Express? You need to pull up your big boy pants and get your sh*t together. Meaning get rid of those planes so I can make it on time to my destination. Maybe it’s just time to pick a new airline. What do you think? What’s your favorite airline to fly?

    I will try this recipe and let you know the results! Thank you!

  4. Kit says:

    Trying to avoid eggs for now, I usually sub banana but I don’t know if that would taste good in this instance. Suggestions?

    1. juli says:

      not sure, haven’t tried it another way

  5. Dev says:

    I made these exactly as instructed. They came out very very dry, and I only cooked them for 30 minutes. They are hard to pick up off the parchment paper because they want to crumble. They taste ok, just hard to choke down.

    1. juli says:

      so weird. mine didn’t crumble, mine barely fell apart.

    2. Cyn says:

      Could be the way you measured your flour. Too much flour will cause the cookies to crumble. I stirred the flour first to loosen it up and then spooned it into the measuring cup. Hope this helps! They really are yummy! 🙂

    OK i’m very knew to this paleo way, of eating and i have only made recipe so far, but is coconut sugar *paleo* ? Or arent these strictly paleo?

    1. juli says:

      depends what sense of paleo you are looking for. if you’re looking to lose weight, stay away from all sugar, if you’re looking for a sustainable lifestyle with some desserts, coconut sugar is fine in smaller amounts (aka not eating the entire batch in one sitting)

  7. Cyn says:

    Tried these tonight and they were Fabulous! Even my husband and kids enjoyed them and they aren’t on the same dietary restrictions as I am. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  8. Gretchen says:

    I made these last night. I used 3/4 cup of coconut sugar cuz I prefer things less sweet. I used 1/2 cup coconut oi & 1/2 cup of melted butte cuz I like butter. I used mini chocolate chips and 1/2 cup was way too many. I put the oven timer at 30 min cuz 35-45 min seemed kinda long for cookies. After 30 min, they were a bit over-cooked and dry. Also, kind of grainy and dense. I’m wondering if adding more egg or some applesauce will help with that.
    I also think using raisins instead of choc chips/chunks would be a yummy variation.
