Purple Potato Chocolate Chip Paleo Cookies

Purple Potato Chocolate Chip Paleo Cookies

Cookies are my obsession, my addiction, my everything! There are very other few things that make me happy like a box of freshly baked sweet cookies. Ever since I was a little girl, I could eat dozens and dozens of cookies every day. Even now you will always find a batch of freshly baked cookies in my home.

Because of my recently discovered gluten sensitivity I had to come up with new and original recipes to please my sweet tooth.

You have seen me baking with almond flour, avocado, sweet potatoes, bananas. Today I will share with you this fantastic recipe which calls for purple potatoes! Yes you heard me 🙂

Rich in fiber, low in carbs, they are soft and tasty and beautifully purple!
