These cookies are a paleo twist to oatmeal cookies. Rather than having the oats and grains, these are grain free and oat free, made with almond and tapioca flour.

I used to really like classic oatmeal cookies, and these are just as good and healthier for the gut than grains.

There are a lot of spices in this little cookie, making it a good holiday treat to warm up with.
