I love baking with my children.  But rather than sugar laden biscuits we will make a batch of paleo cookies.  Made with almond flour and flavoured with raw cacao and lucuma these are perfect for an afternoon snack.  For an extra protein hit my recipe includes protein powder – we like to use VEGA chocolate protein powder or Vital Pea Protein.  For a special treat we coat them in dairy free chocolate and top with chopped nuts – a fabulous cookie enjoyed by everyone.
