Eating a healthy cookie that satisfies me and gives me joy was something I never thought was possible when I started my healthy eating journey. I have always looked at cookies as an unhealthy snack option, to be eaten in a moderation.
The beauty of cooking healthy regularly, is that you tend to develop a sense of what ingredients can work, and create a delicious healthier version of the original unhealthy recipes.
