THE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES IVE EVER MADE

THE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES IVE EVER MADE

This recipe came about in somewhat of an odd manner. I've recently moved back to my home town and I got invited to a barbecue with some friends I hadn't seen in a while. CrossFitters who love to eat none the less. I went out to the garden to pick some zucchini but I knew I needed to bring a paleo treat along. That's how they know me! I had a very short amount of time to whip something up and very few ingredients in my house but I threw a few things in a bowl and these delicious creations came about. Now every time we have a barbecue they ask me where the chocolate chip cookies are! I've created a bit of an addiction.

BACON CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

BACON CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

I'm really excited to share this recipe and guest post from Bob, the blogger and owner of Not So Fast Food. He's got some incredible recipes, but he was generous enough to share this epic one with me. He also has a Paleo food truck, which is pretty awesome. I think I need to plan a trip down to San Diego to try it out. Anyone want to come along? Here's a little message from Bob before he shares this delicious recipe with us: Did I say Bacon, Chocolate Chip Cookies?!?!?! You betta believe it! I mean...what's not to love here? I combined two of everyone's favorites! BACON & Chocolate Chip Cookies. The craze of the past few years has been the combination of Bacon & Chocolate and I get why! It's FREAKING delicious!!!!!! One dilemma I have on my Primal lifestyle is my sweet tooth.....I absolutely love chocolate. Gummi Bears are my other kryptonite, but, I don't have them very often anymore. Chocolate though, I can't get enough of a delicious piece of dark chocolate, especially with Coconut. Better get ready for A LOT of Chocolate desserts on this Blog. The baking time for the cookies will depend on the size you make them. I aim for a good sized tablespoon of dough!

CHOCOLATE CHIP CRANBERRY N'OATMEAL COOKIES

CHOCOLATE CHIP CRANBERRY N'OATMEAL COOKIES

Well I've been on a bit of a cookie kick lately. Probably because I've made them for my teammates a few times now and they've started to expect them when I turn up for training. I also bribe Mark Bell with them so he'll teach me how to powerlift. It seems to be working. He helped me bench press 200lbs over the weekend and made a really nice video about my deadlift. I think he referred to my form as "a dog crapping on a front lawn" you can check it out here: Fixing Ashley Beaver's Deadlift. Other then that my life has been busy with work and training. I've been training at WarriorZ CrossFit in Elk Grove on their Caffeine and Kilos NorCal Regional team. It's been an amazing experience to say the least. The athletes I've had the pleasure of working with are experienced, knowledgeable and a lot of fun to be around. We push each other, coach one anther, and hang out when we're finished. I couldn't ask for a more supportive group of friends to be training with every day. I made these cookies for a BBQ we had last weekend. Considering the fact that they were gone in 2 seconds, I'm gonna say they were liked somewhat. So you'll probably want to make them. Enjoy and happy weekend!

CAPPELLO'S SLICE AND BAKE COOKIE DOUGH

I had the pleasure of taste testing one of the newest and most exciting things since, well, since forever. Slice and bake paleo cookie dough. Yes you heard me right. You order it online, slice it, bake it, and devour it. Or you just open the package and eat the dough if you see fit.

COOKIES SO GOOD MY ANCESTORS WOULD APPROVE?!

COOKIES SO GOOD MY ANCESTORS WOULD APPROVE?!

That's their slogan and that's what they claim over at Paleo Bakehouse. Well I'm no ancestor yet, but I would like to think I'm a bit of a cookie expert. I received a batch in the mail this week (the day I was supposed to start my 21 Day Sugar Detox of all days) a sign from the Gods? Maybe, okay maybe not, I'm starting tomorrow, but I had to give an honest review, so I'm doing this for the blog. I got three different kinds, Amazing Almond, Chocolate Chip, and Power Brownie Cookie, I like the names, so that was a good start. After I was done taking photographs, sorry if they aren't great, I was anxious to try them, I opened one of each flavor and poured myself a large glass of almond milk, because who doesn't love milk and cookies? And OMG they were soooo good. The Amazing Almond was definitely my favorite. I could have eaten the whole package in one sitting. The chocolate chip was a classic and the power brownie was pretty tasty too. To keep myself from devouring all of them, and to share the paleo love with some fellow crossfitters I packaged one of each flavor up in a bag and took them with me to training in the morning. They had theirs after our workout and I'm pretty sure they came to the same consensus I did. Actually I know they did, my friend and fellow training partner texted me after we left and said "I just ate all of my cookies, they are soo good!! I'm really happy you only gave me 3, otherwise it would have been bad." Haha, exactly how I felt. So if you're looking for a tasty treat to satisfy your sweet tooth with convenience and made from healthy natural ingredients then I'd recommend trying Paleo Bakehouse, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
