Sometimes cravings get to me. Even when I've had a full meal, the urge for something sweet takes over. Do you know what I mean? What's a healthy food blogger to do? Make these dynamite-for-you, sweet and satisfying cookies that you can have any time of the day. Breakfast, anyone?
They even have a secret ingredient.
They also have a tad of sugar, but the addition of applesauce, banana and carrot help. They are subtly sweet. You could possibly substitute zucchini for the carrot, but it adds more moisture so add a little more flour, if you do.
You can add any kind of nuts you have on hand. I made these with pumpkin seeds and walnuts. The basic recipe is very good even without the addition of chocolate chips or nuts! Enjoy! These are more cake-like than cookies made with more fat.
Oh, and the secret ingredient.... QUINOA. I love that they have a little more protein to balance the carbs.
