Paleo Pumpkin Spice Cookies {gluten Free, Vegan Option}

By Fitfulfocus @fitfulfocus

Monday gets a lot of flack. It’s the start of the work week, so a lot of people dread it. Poor, Monday. It comes right after the weekend, yet it’s so far from Cool Kid Friday. It just wants to be an exciting day. 

Well, I love Mondays. I spend the weekend testing out new recipes, and Mondays are the days I get to share my creations with you. No more Mundane Mondays, I say! Here’s to Mouthwatering Mondays and these Paleo Pumpkin Spice Cookies!

If you read the latest installment of the Boyfriend Chronicles, you know that Will is giving the Paleo Diet a go. I’ve taken it upon myself to find fun new Paleo recipes that he’ll like. These cookies were a winner.

Moist (yup – moist – sorry for those of you that hate the word – moist – whoops, said it again!), just the perfect amount of sweet, and Paleo – which means they are gluten and dairy free
