Cacao Bliss Cookies

Ever since I made these Paleo Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter Cups I’ve become hooked on coconut butter, Artisana Coconut Butter to be exact. There’s something about the taste and texture of it that I can’t describe. It’s addicting! So I went online to check out other products they make, then I discovered Cacao Bliss. It’s coconut AND chocolate all mixed in a jar and sweetened with a touch of agave nectar. OMG! No wonder it’s called Cacao Bliss. So how do you eat Cacao Bliss? You can dig in the jar with a spoon and hide in your bedroom. Or you can make these gluten-free, low in sugar Cacao Bliss Cookies and share them with friends. (Or you can eat the whole batch to yourself and still hide in your bedroom.)
