Paleo Brownie Cookies

Recipes courtesy of Heather at Home To Heather Blog
These are delicious and super easy to make. I've gained a few pounds after weaning Daniel and have been back on a relatively strict low carb diet but these were my one bit of carbs and sugar this entire week.  They also only have coconut flour instead of almond flour which is significantly cheaper.
