As with most Paleo baked goods, these are the very best on the same day they are baked. I’ve noticed that Paleo baked goods dry out faster than their non-Paleo counterparts.
I love to make cookies like these to put in my children’s lunches, because they taste good, so they are motivated to eat the healthy part of their lunch, but because there are healthy things with substance in them too, like pumpkin and almond flour.
