These soft and chewy paleo pumpkin cookies are delish! And they are filled with fall spices and chocolate chips! A crisp cookie crust on the outside and a warm chewy, soft inside. These cookies are the kind that make you want to cuddle up with a cup of tea, a good book, and one or two more cookies…:)
Paleo pumpkin cookies are grain free, paleo, healthy, super duper easy to make! And a delicious paleo desert or snack. For any occasion really. But since it is fall… they will be perfect for any upcoming holiday parties!
So I am in a season of recovery. I realize now that it is okay to hope for and focus on things that bring life. All I want to do happy things. Be joyful. Laugh a lot. Smile more. Be at peace. And not live in pain. Going a little deep in todays blog post. Sorry guys. But really. I think it’s so cool how it is important to breathe life into ourselves and into others.
For me, a step in releasing everything and just being in the moment comes from being in the kitchen. Yes, maybe I cannot do everything I would wish yet. My body is still in process. Healing is a journey. But I can get up. And most morning even manage to make a recipe and take some pretty pictures. This fall has got me all wrapped up in all the lovely spices. I am obsessed with all things pumpkin. If ya couldn’t tell;) And I am happy and content to focus on creating a joyful atmosphere around me.
all the fall things
Food brings joy. Food gives life. And making yummy fall inspired pumpkin cookies is the best! Baking is a way for me to recognize be thankful for all the little details. Details that go unnoticed most days. The simple comfort of toasty cinnamon spiced air. Yeah, it’s pretty great! Warm and cosy sweaters. Slipper covered feet moving around in the kitchen. Gentle tunes… And sometimes loud tunes that are joined by joyful singing. All these things made today stellar.
Because mornings when I wake up and have enough energy to bake. Well, it makes me the happiest person to have enough energy! Afternoons when I can sit outside and play ukulele and have enough energy to sing. Well, it makes me the happiest person to have enough energy! Sometimes I forget that I am on a journey.
the little things
I so badly want my body to function for me. (Read my full health story here). But in my focus, I forget to see the process. I tend to forget to add value to the tears. To the baby steps that are moving forward. And sometimes I just don’t want to see it. I just want to reach the finish line.

But I reminded that there is beauty in the raw and real process. As much as I fight it. I am on a journey. A journey to finding beauty and joy in the process. Thanks for joining me friend! And bearing with me as I process and ramble.
