“This is a healthy adaptation of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe so that I could eat a dozen or so of these while I was pregnant without really debilitating guilt... just normal guilt. It didn't really work out the way I wanted to (I gained 80 lbs!) but at least my monumental weight gain slowed down... Aye Yaye Yaye, Nothing made me hungrier than being pregnant! :0 These are named after my Zoey.”
24-36 cookies
