Halvah Cookies

Halvah (Tahini) Cookies

Hello everyone! I’ve got a very tasty treat for you today that happens to be a spin on a beloved childhood treat of mine!

Before that, I wanted to quickly mention my new newsletter, Paleo Bytes. I recently sent out the first newsletter and got a great response! I am sending out a monthly-ish newsletter (you will not get emails every time I post – that’s boring) that features fresh content and awesome times. You can sign up on the right sidebar!

You may not recognize the word “halvah”, but don’t let that turn you away. These cookies are incredibly simple to make – only 4 ingredients! If you like tahini (sesame seed paste), you’ll definitely enjoy these slightly sweet cookies.

Chia Energy Bars

Spiced Chocolate Chia Energy Bars

Sometimes I really just want chocolate. I mean, who doesn’t? People that don’t like chocolate, I guess. But those people are kind of weird and you should be a little suspicious of them.

The problem with chocolate, though, is that on its own it’s not super great for you or very filling. I’m not really one of those “oh, I’ll only have one bite of this dark chocolate bar and I’m good” kind of people. I’m not really a “I can’t help myself and I’m going to stuff my face with chocolate” person, either. Perhaps I just like experimenting too much, so I just throw cacao powder at things hoping it tastes good. Well, whatever the reason, I came up with these Spiced Chocolate Chia Energy Bars, and they were chocolatey and delicious enough to share with all of you!

Layered Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Here I am, finally joining in on the PUMPKIN ALL THE THINGS craze. Not that I haven’t made pumpkin the base of my food pyramid already—glance around my Facebook page or Instagram and you’ll see that pumpkin has become a huge part of my life. I might even say we’re going steady.

I’ve been having Bulletproof(R) Pumpkin Spice Lattes every. single. day. There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s actually the most fun and delicious part of my day. It’s a shame I have to rush through it 64% of my mornings to get to work on time. To make sure I have somewhat adequate time for my morning coffee ritual, it’s nice to have breakfasts pre-prepared.

That’s where chia puddings come in.
