Lemon & blueberry cookies anyone?

I’ve mentioned that I often dream about food – about how I sometimes create new recipes in my dreams while I’m sleeping!

Well, these cookies were a result of one of my food dreams.

Actually, the dream that I created these lemon & blueberry cookies in was one of the first “food dreams” that I ever had… and so I feel a bit selfish for only sharing the recipe with you now – because it is so freaking good!

I love a good cookie (I’m sure you do too) and I also love a cookie that is both healthy and unique.

There are a lot of cookie recipes in the world – and while I sometimes love a simple cookie like a chocolate-chip cookie, I ALWAYS LOVE a cookie that offers a new exciting flavour experience for my tastebuds… just like these lemon & blueberry cookies do.

This cookie recipe is possibly my favourite cookie creation because it is so deliciously unique and so amazingly yummy!

This recipe is completely sugar-free, grain-free, gluten-free and dairy-free. It’s also totally healthy and free from any nasty, processed ingredients.

I hope that you love it as much as I do – and I love it a lot!
