chocolate chipotle snaps

Here they are! Our paleo chocolate cookie chipotle snaps ~ the recipe currently featured in the newest edition (Feb. 2018) of Paleo Magazine! What a thrill it was to come up with a recipe when they reached out asking to feature our little blog in an upcoming issue. We are actually still pinching ourselves. Got one word for you: BELIEVE! Believe things will happen that you hope for, plan on it, expect it, know that it will happen!

On what we thought was just a typical morning around here, getting ready for work and the day ahead, I noticed a direct message over on Instagram from someone I wasn’t familiar with. This isn’t an odd thing, since we do get DM’s from lots of folks we don’t know, but this one was very different! It’s not everyday you’re contacted about being featured in Paleo Magazine and they ask you to come up with an original recipe….are you kidding me?!

Flattered, honored, in total disbelief…all those feelings and more! This just goes to show you what saying things out loud will do for you life. Each time a new edition of Paleo Magazine arrived I said the words “we will be in this magazine!” When I’d look through all the amazing food pictures I would say “one day, one of my pictures/recipes will be in here!” The issue with this cookie recipe and our bio has not just one, but two of my recipes/pictures! Little did I know last year that Otto’s Cassava Flour & Redmond Real Salt would have placed an ad with my waffle recipe. Say things OUT LOUD! Speak them to whoever is in the room, or even if the room is empty…it works and brings abundance to your life.

“You Bring About What You Think About”

So, back to these cookies! They’re a paleo chocolate cookie that are simple, they’re delicious and yes, they do have just a teeny tiny kick to them, but that’s the point!! You can skip adding the chipotle chili powder if you want, but believe me…you’ll be missing out! Go on, take the plunge and give your taste buds a wake up call! You…Will…Love…Them!!
