“My Motto for everything I make is "Try to Eat a Rainbow each and every Day" and that goes for cookies too! While I'm not a huge sweets lover I do like an occasional cookie as it pairs well with tea, milk or any drink basically and serves as a special little "treat" for your hard earned efforts at success. They are packed with nutrients and lower in fat and sugars than most. Be sure to add crushed Total Cereal where I list "Whole Grain" cereal as it is the most nutritionally packed product on the market. This raises the nutritional value higher than what you see in the breakdown on the right. So enjoy making and eating them and do not feel guilty about having an extra one of two!”
