Warning: This recipe may cause snowball fights. Make sure you bake (err… no bake) enough for everyone! They’re that good. Sweet and buttery in flavor with a melt-in-your-mouth texture.

The tangy sweetness of key lime pie is packed into a bite-sized cookie! These no bake Paleo cookies use macadamia nuts, sunflower seeds, and coconut flour for the base. But of course, it’s the lime juice and zest that gives them their zing. The dough in this recipe remains quite wet, so you’ll want to pop it into the freezer for a bit. When it’s firm enough, it’s ready to roll in a crumbly nut-based “crust”!
