Paleo Cookie Extravaganza + Cherry Crumb Pie Recipe!

What a great weekend filled with fun, family, and even Cherry Crumb Pie! Here’s what we’ve been up to:

Cole's cherry pie | Paleo Parents

Have we mentioned we have the coolest kids?! Cole and I made this Cherry Crumb Pie using Otto’s Cassava Flour and the sweetest, most delicious cherries! Cole did everything for making this pie – including writing the recipe, mixing together everything, tasting and critiquing it, and even the photography (with only a little help from us)! It is incredibly rewarding to see him showing interest in things like this… it helps him appreciate the amount of work that goes into our blog and cookbooks in order to help and inspire all of you!

Paleo crackers rosemary | Paleo Parents

If you haven’t seen these yet, Simple Mills Crackers are legit one of the best Paleo crackers we’ve ever had- especially the rosemary flavor! It’s the perfect vehicle for nutrient dense tuna salad, topped with a shake of Sea Veg Sea Salt.

Fresh orange juice machine | Paleo Parents

We spent the whole long weekend running errands, cooking together, and having fun enjoying the great weather. On a trip to the grocery store, each of the boys got to pick out one treat, and we loved that Finn picked freshly-squeezed orange juice (of course the super-cool-do-it-yourself-machine helped!). Either way, it was a great choice that we were so proud of him for making.

Paleo family road trip | Paleo Parents

The weekend wasn’t all shopping- we loaded up the boys, packed a picnic and headed out to a wildlife preserve in Maryland. We had a great time, got in a lot of walking, and even saw sloths and snakes!!

Paleo Cookie Essentials

Cookies are a perfect summertime treat, we often bring them to potlucks and parties since they’re easy to eat on the go! Plus they’re fun, they can actually be made quite healthful, plus they travel well, and are a nice treat when the boys have friends over on long summer days!

Simple Mills has become one of our favorite brands, and their Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix does not disappoint! These cookies are not only great-tasting, but so QUICK TO WHIP UP. We love that the boys can (and do!) make these mixes nearly all by themselves.

Even quicker and easier is Capello’s Cookie Dough. Kept in the freezer, this slice and bake dough is just the thing for serious COOKIE-EMERGENCIES (we’ve all had them!) and will have great cookies ready in a moment’s notice!

We’ve baked a lot of Paleo cookies in the past six years, and one thing we ALWAYS USE is a silicon baking mat. It saves our pans and makes clean up super easy! This is a Paleo baking must-have!

Don’t feel like baking? Hail Merry Macaroons are made with only a few simple, CLEAN INGREDIENTS, contain a very modest amount of sweetener (maple syrup), and come in flavors like Lemon, Caramel Sea Salt, Vanilla and Dark Chocolate!
