We made these turdy little cookies yesterday to run to a friend’s house for a housewarming snack. Healthy cookies are always a little turdy.
Lately I’ve been trying to find more healthy dessert recipes. Not that I don’t like honest to goodness baked goods, the kind made with real sugar, but sometimes they’re just TOO much. You feel ill after you eat one. I want to eat five. I have an agenda. A lot of my friends just halve the sugar in traditional recipes. Which is one way to go about it. But there are a lot of alternative recipes worth trying as well. I like how these are made with two cups of whole almonds that you blend into the flour. They are sweetened with a mix of brown sugar and applesauce. Because really, there is just too much white sugar in circulation. In a knock your socks off kind of way. Nobody needs that. Kind of like over-salting your food. Except not, because I have nothing against that at all.
