This time of the year we all eat way too many sweets so I thought I would make a cookie that I could make a change in the sugar without sacrificing taste.
The cookie turned out delicious and I was pleased with the sugar change.
This is a quick and easy recipe you can make from start to clean up in less than 1 hour.
I found this recipe in All You Magazine and adapted it for my ‘healthier’ Halloween Oatmeal Cookie which I made to #fillthecookiejar this month. If you would like to bake with the Fill The Cookie Jar group, please contact Cynthia at Feeding Big.
