CITRUS COCONUT COOKIES

Oh no I've failed you. I promised one recipe a day and I posted nothing yesterday. Well to make it up to you I will try to post two recipes today. I do have an excuse though. Typically I come home from work and the gym, write a post, eat, shower and go to bed. But yesterday one of my best friends (who's in the navy) returned home from six months at sea! I'm beyond ecstatic to have her back in my life, she's one of my crossfitting buddies as well so she has been very missed at the gym. After work we went out for Tapas (which was a bit of a paleo fail) but I believe we are all entitled to a splurge on the rare special occasion! I could talk for days about how much fun we had catching up and indulging our taste buds in what felt extremely naughty, but I'm on my lunch break posting this and the minutes are ticking away, so on with the recipe. This is something I tried recently from the preppy paleo. They're really tasty and something a bit different.
