“As someone who's always on the go, I never have time to sit down and eat breakfast. These cookies are my lifesaver. I make them on a Sunday night and pop a few in my bag, car's glove compartment and in my office drawers and snack on them all week long. *You can also substitute other fruits to suit your palate. #allthegoodnesswithnoneoftheguilt”
