“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.”
– Barbara Jordan
I don’t know that I’ve quite learned how to include a nap into my busy schedule every day, but, cookies is a language I speak fluently. From movie nights to dessert after Sunday dinner to an after-school snack for the kids, cookies find their way into our lives. If we’re going to eat them anyway, we might as well make them healthy. That’s why I love this recipe that uses no refined sugar and einkorn flour instead of wheat or white flour.
Einkorn has many great health benefits and is easier on our digestive system. So, I believe that desserts don’t need to be an exception. If we can make a delicious, healthy cookie, then why not? Well that’s exactly what this is.
I was actually blown away by how great this cookie tasted. Let’s be real, sometimes we make sacrifices to be healthy. Because of how much we want to take care of our bodies, we eat things that are tolerable but, in all actuality, just aren’t as tasty as that bacon cheeseburger from Wendy’s. So we opt for whole wheat pancakes in stead of fluffy white pancakes that probably taste better. Well, judge for yourself, but I do not believe that to be the case with these cookies. I didn’t feel like I was sacrificing at all. I’d make this my go-to cookie. Try it yourself, and see!
