Raw Almond Butter Cookies

Raw Almond Butter Cookies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and happy Monday! The latter phrase is typically the last thing most of us want to hear/read/say when our alarms startle us back to reality after a weekend of relaxation, but I find that when I write it out it actually makes me feel kind of excited to kick off the work week. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend filled with friends, family, and lots of luck + laughter. In preparation for being out of town in a few weeks, I spent much of the weekend creating recipes, photographing, and editing. If you would have seen me at 4pm on Saturday afternoon, you would have found me in yoga clothes covered in coconut shreds, raw cacao, tomato sauce, cumin, and watermelon. Don’t worry, none of my upcoming recipes incorporate all of those ingredients at once, and I hope I’m not disappointing those of you who might have been looking forward to a recipe of grilled watermelon sprinkled with cumin and covered in a coconut-cacao tomato sauce. There’s about a 1% chance that recipe might actually be delicious, but I’m not willing to bet the luck of my Irish heritage on it this week.
