Phoenix Cookies

Tonight, we’re teaching our Food Allergies for the Holidays class – we teach it every year, but every year the recipe list gets longer as we come up with more and more delicious holiday treats!

As I was adding this one into the handout, I thought oooh! I should share this with everyone! I made these spontaneously while visiting my sister-in-law in Phoenix, hence the name. Macadamia Chocolate Chunk is a very popular cookie, but this is one of those cases where the paleo version is so much better, because the *whole cookie* is macadamia, not just one or two bits of nut. Oh so decadent!

Ingredients:
About 3 cups macadamia nuts, ground with some small chunks left
1 cup shredded coconut
¼ cup honey
2-3 eggs
1 bar of fair trade dark chocolate, chopped
¼ cup coconut oil
pinch of salt
a bit of cardamom, cinnamon, and nutmeg

Combine all ingredients, spoon out as cookie blobs onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.

And really, you should probably make a double batch…
This batch didn’t last long enough for them even to cool!


Tapeworm? No problem!

Our dog…
You know, some people love fine wines. Some people appreciate fancy truffle oil. Our dog, she loves goose poop. I don’t know what it is, but she seems to think it is the tastiest of all delicacies. Yuck.

And of course, here in Boston, there’s no shortage of goose poop. Which makes Elsie very happy, but also has landed her with tapeworm three times this summer.
