…After having baked the Healthy Low-Calorie Apple Cookies and seeing them disappear in a matter of one day I decided that this was a good sign! The sign that more cookies needed to be baked!But then – healthy cookies are always a good idea, don’t they? 🙂
Especially now, after having just survived the Halloween Candy overload!
Because here’s a weird thing: now that all the candy is finally gone, everyone in the family STILL craves “something sweet”! But yet, only I have this nagging feeling that “something sweet” should also be on the healthier side! 🙂
This is why this batch of healthy cookies was the best and the easiest answer to this “want something sweet” but need something healthy dilemma! 🙂
