Almond Flour Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I love eating sugar cookies around the holidays and was so happy to find a healthier option with almond flour! These cookies turned out perfectly soft and kept well for a few days! I skipped the frosting since I'm not a huge fan of it but please let me know if you try it!

Herby Everything Cheddar Swirl Buns

I'm such a big fan of Teighan over at Half Baked Harvest and watch her instagram food stories daily! As soon as I saw this cheddar pesto bun, I knew I had to try it out! They are perfectly cheesy with the right amount of herbs! I love these so much and will definitely be making them again!
