There’s nothing I love more than healthier alternative to a standard desert. These cookies mix up quickly, however they don’t make a whole lot. You could look at that as a good thing; less indulgence and some portion control. Or you could just double the recipe!

I also make these smaller, so that I get 20 or so cookies instead of the 10 that it calls for. However, I have to reduce the baking time when I do this to about 10 minutes or less.

I’ve had this recipe around for a while, so I unfortunately can’t properly credit the author. But if I find it then I’ll post an update for sure.
