Now that I’m 1.5 months into going back on AIP/elimination for Liam, his skin is 99% improved and his stomach issues are slowly getting better. For all of the doctors we’ve seen and told us to switch to formula or to accept his issues as normal, eff you. Changing your diet and lifestyle has a huge impact on your overall well being.
Being on such a restrictive diet has definitely cleaned up my own gut, but it has also given me a HUGE sweet tooth. I’m a believer that your body craves what you need and are lacking. Clearly, that is currently sweets. This past weekend, I tried reintroducing sweet potatoes and chocolate. Guess which one made Liam scream of gas pains. Yep, chocolate. Which brings me to these cookies. Even though sunflowers seeds aren’t AIP, both Liam and I can tolerate them just fine. Plus, sunbutter tastes almost like peanut butter and is an excellent allergen free substitute.
My latest AIP recipes have been a complete fail and have tasted like crap. So this cookie was a complete shocker that it actually worked out well. Enjoy this delicious and fool proof recipe:
Gluten-Free Paleo Sunbutter Cookies
