Who doesn't love cookies? I honestly don't think I have ever met someone who doesn't like a cookie...I mean, there are so many types and flavors, it is almost impossible for someone to "not like cookies". However if you are trying to lose weight, cookies may not be your best friend. Or if you are like me and just like to eat healthy, but also have a huge sweet tooth, these cookies CAN be your best friend. The entire batch is only 360 calories, 7g of fat and 12g sugar! So good luck just eating one. I myself tend to eat the whole batch in one sitting.
I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but it comes from Kim Hoeltje's infamous cookies!

Eating healthy takes commitment, it's a lifestyle.
I love food, that's a given...but I also love to eat healthy. I try to workout three times a week, and eat a lot of protein. These are some snacks, meals, and desserts that are healthy, but also very good! Eating healthy doesn't have to be plain and boring!
