    Delicious! I added chocolate chips … couldn’t help myself. Entire family enjoyed these but the win was my picky son who never wants to try anything new thought they were yummy!

  2. As we age, our bones can become arthritic, ligaments stiffen, and cartilage wears down. This causes the bones of the SIJ to painfully rub together. Poor posture stemming from frequent sitting, wearing shoes like high heels, or genetics can lead to a pelvic tilt and lumbar lordosis. This causes painful compression and tightness of the SIJ.

  3. Trying these using the first recipe. The printable version is different….1 cup coconut flour or 1 cup brown rice flour?
