Paleo Sugar Cookie Recipe

Butterfly and flower cutout sugar cookies

Happy May Day, everyone! We love spring, with all of its bright colours and pretty sights. We thought that the perfect welcome for spring (and soon summer!) would be to start off on a healthy, but decidedly yummy, foot. That’s why we have made these oh-so-cute paleo sugar cookies.

We know what you’re thinking, we were once right there with you. When we first heard about this paleo sugar cookie recipe, we must admit, we were sceptical – sugar cookies? Paleo? Good? We are proud to report that our scepticism was wildly unfounded and that, yes indeed, these cookies are paleo and good. Try it out for yourself and go outside to celebrate May!

Place cokies on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and turn on your oven to bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes. (we burned them the first time, so we started checking the second batch at 5 minute intervals until the cookies looked done).
