perfect Cut-out paleo sugar cookies-

The best cut-out cookies were hard to find, but I think we have done it! Your family + friends won’t even guess these are grain free.

A moist + chewy take on a traditionally crunchy classic is the perfect holiday twist, in our opinion.

HIVEhomemade Paleo Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe

Dry Mix “HIVEhomemade

Ingredients:
  • 1 c. Cacao Powder
  • 1 c. Collagen peptides
  • 2 c. Coconut sugar
  • 1 c. Powdered coconut or goats milk (optional)
  • 1/8 t. Sea salt or pink Himalayan salt
  • Shake it all up! 


Optional Serving Suggestions:
I suggest starting with 1 T. or heaping spoonful (add more if desired) + hot water + non dairy milk, healthy creamer, or goat's milk. (Our favorite is Picnik Butter Coffee Creamer - it is the perfect creamy addition in our opinion.) Try one of our variations below or keep it simple with the best of the best. Add a touch of honey, maple syrup (my personal fave), or more coconut sugar to taste if needed.


Other variations/additions:

Mexican Hot chocolate - add cinnamon + red pepper

Spicy Hot Chocolate - red pepper or spicy ginger

Turmeric Hot chocolate - add turmeric + cinnamon

Minty Goodness - add fresh mint and/or peppermint oil

Chocolate Chai - add chai tea

Extra healthy - add MCT oil + ghee for an extra creamy filling version

Cafe Mocha - Add 1 T. to your favorite coffee. This is my favorite way to use this recipe!!!


Other Tips:

- Add marshmallows!

- Use this recipe all year round for hot or cold beverages.
