I’ve been looking for a recipe that incorporates lots of goodies mixed with healthy ingredients to create a delectable treat. These low-fat cookies I made turned out great! If you’re used to full-fat cookies then this recipe may taste less oily to you, and for good reason – it is! For me, these have the perfect amount of sweetness and are very delicious! I adapted this recipe from BakingBites.com. The internet is a great resource when looking for new recipes. You can pick and choose which recipes you like best, what main ingredients you’re looking to include, and you can always make the recipe your own with just a few tweaks.
