Snow Days

Its Finally Winterlike!

I've had lots of time to rest and enjoy my husband and our home these last few weeks and I am grateful to be living this really swell life. 

 

Chocolate Avocado Cookies with Maple Coconut Frosting

Avocado creamed with a little maple syrup, an egg, coconut oil and vanilla in the blender combined with almond meal, ground chia, cinnamon, cacao, baking soda and salt makes a really nice cookie.

Melted coconut butter with maple syrup, vanilla and salt as a frosting makes these little guys feel sinful.
