Soft Almond Flour Peanut Butter Apple Cookies

What a crazy busy month it’s been. The first week of June was super busy with me releasing a bunch of new features for Velvet Aroma along with doing last minute stuff to be prepared for speaking at BlogHer Food. After I came back, I had friends visiting me from Australia for a week. These friends are extra special to my husband and myself. So we decided to dig deep into our energy reserves to show them around Tahoe and San Francisco. I think I haven’t done as much in such a short period of time since my early 20s.
