As some of you may know that read my Facebook posts, I have to cut down on my eggs. (It is more of an intolerance than an allergy) I used to make these cookies quite a while ago but had forgotten all about them. With some new tweaks they taste better than ever!
This is also another way to feed your children and yourself healthier snacks! Don’t tell your kids how healthy they are!! They may get angry at you for ruining their cookies 🙂 These would even be great in the morning for a quick healthy snack!
