Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies will be your new favorites, for all time. Paleo or not, these babies are gorgeous!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies - the BEST paleo cookies! Even the non-paleo people in your life will love these!

Meet my new favorite cookie.

I’m having this thing with coconut this summer. It started with this peanut coconut sauce that I was making daily and putting on everything and now I’ve moved onto cookies.

I mean, can you blame me? Coconut and chocolate is such a perfect combination.

Naturally, I’m obsessed with these Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies.

I have been making a batch almost every week and then I’ll make some paleo ice cream and I’ll count down the minutes until the kids go to bed so I can sandwich the ice cream between these cookies and enjoy them in total silence.

That’s totally normal, right?

Strawberry Coconut Granola - easy homemade granola recipe! Oats, coconut, sliced almonds, and strawberries!

Heeeey guys!

Are you watching Big Brother?

I am buuuuut I’m just not into it like I normally am.

I mean, does the boyfriend come home after work and find me watching the live feeds at 1 am?

Of course he does.

But I’m just not invested in anyone yet. And it’s so disappointing because I look forward to it all year. Ugh, hopefully it will get better.

Ambrosia Macaroons - delicious coconut cookies filled with orange zest, lime juice, and dried pineapple. And topped with a cherry!

COOKIES!

I’m so into making cookies right now.

I have 3 different cookies on my counter right now.

I’m refusing to try any of them because I know if I have one, I’ll have to have them all.

No self control. None.

But these! I made these weeks ago and ate way more than I’m going to admit to you today. I cannot resist a coconut macaroon!

Ambrosia Macaroons - delicious coconut cookies filled with orange zest, lime juice, and dried pineapple. And topped with a cherry!

These are different from the classic coconut macaroon though. They’re supposed to have the same flavors as ambrosia salad so they’re made with lime juice, orange zest, dried pineapple, and they have a maraschino cherry on top!

How cute are they?!

Also, really really simple. And they take no time at all!

If you love coconut macaroons as much as I do, you have to give these a try!

Samoa Bars recipe - just like your favorite Girl Scouts cookies! And so easy!

Originally published on February 19, 2011. 

It’s that time of year. You know what time I’m talking about.

Girl Scouts have positioned themselves outside every grocery store, drug store, ballpark, everywhere you could possibly need to go. I try, I really do – I try to walk past them without making eye contact. It never works. This year was no different. I ended up with a box of Samoas (what’s the new name? Caramel something-or-another?) that my children demolished within seconds.

These bars, which are meant to be like my beloved Samoas, have been on my must make list for years now and I am so sad that I’ve waited this long to make them! They are so easy, so quick, and taste exactly like the Samoas. Please don’t be scared of the 3 steps. I’m telling you, there’s nothing difficult about this recipe.

If you wanted to take these one step further, you could dip the bottoms of the bars in melted chocolate. I’m not a chocolate fan so I skipped that part but if you wanted to, just melt a bag of chocolate chips instead of the 1/2 cup that this recipe calls for. Once it’s melted, dip the bars one at a time and then place on parchment (or wax paper) to harden.

Loaded Cookie Bars - this easy recipe starts with a boxed cookie mix and are stuffed with chocolate, peanut butter, candy, and coconut!

I recently had a really fun opportunity to participate in a baking Blog Hop. So I baked something, sent it off to Becky of Somewhat Simple, and received the yummiest Double Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies from Jenny of Picky Palate.

This Blog Hop featured the new Pillsbury Purely Simple baking mixes. They contain simple ingredients, no colors, no preservatives, and no artificial ingredients. Have you tried them yet?

I used the Pillsbury Purely Simple for these Loaded Cookie Bars and it was fabulous. The mix only requires a stick of butter and an egg if you want to make sugar cookies. I, of course, added more than that! This bars have white chocolate chips, semisweet chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, coconut, and milk chocolate candies!

I would’ve added more but I ran out of things in my baking cabinet!

I love these kinds of bars! Something fun and different in every bite! Plus the chewy cookie itself!

And since I started with the Pillsbury Purely Simple baking mix, these took no time to whip up! The hardest part was waiting for the butter to soften!
