My pre-wedding/New Year eating resolve was to try out the Primal Diet, which basically means try to eat like a cave [wo]man, aka no processed stuff, no grains, no refined sugar, no delicious pasta, bread etc. But hey, lots of kale. I will openly admit that I only eat primal
80 70 percent of the time. But even that much really does make me feel awesome.
These cookies are NOT primal. But they are flowerless, so that should count for something. And they are quite possibly the best peanut butter cookies ever. I first had them when Amanda threw a party for all my former students so we could squeal over engagement stuff. And in comparison with the copious amounts of pizza rolls, mini cupcakes, and cheesy dip that I consumed, these cookies were practically primal.
