In my opinion a healthy balanced diet still includes indulging sometimes. It’s just aboutmaking a smart choice. My favorite is cookies and there’s nothing more rewardingthen making your own cookies and then eating them. You’ll be more satisfied with ahomemade treat and end up eating less cookies then if you were to buy a box of Oreos. Trust me!
These are so easy to make because there’s very few ingredients. Just one rule, youMUST love peanut butter. And I mean REAL peanut butter. Not the kind with all thesugar and oil in it. Even better, these cookies happen to be vegan (if you use veganchocolate or chocolate chips) and gluten free. I’m also confident saying that my recipe isalso totally GUILT free too!
