This past weekend I went to Lou’s sisters house to bake Christmas cookies. Although I was pretty pumped for the Homemade Peppermint Oreos on our list (not clean by any means), I wanted to include some cookies that wouldn’t make me feel sick. We found this recipe for Raw Hazelnut Macaroons Dipped in Chocolate. Hellooo.

Who said clean desserts can’t taste sinful? :)
