When I transitioned to a healthier lifestyle, one of my biggest concerns was that I would not be able to indulge in some of my favorite sweets. Not only do I still get to enjoy my old favorites in moderation, but I've also created some of the yummiest and healthiest dessert recipes.  This was actually my first time making cookies with flour, and I'm so pleased with how the recipe turned out. This recipe is so soft, chewy, and flavorful. I stocked up on all my essentials and I've looked forward to trying different variations of this recipe.  If you're a fan of delectable delights look no further! This recipe will quickly become a staple in your home.
