  Who knew that a seemingly “dry” cookie could be so delicious! Could it be the concentrated flavors, the yummy add ins, or just the excuse that with its dryness, you can dip it into your morning coffee or afternoon tea?  Biscotti is another thing I didn’t really have growing up. Since I have a […]

I’m surprised its taken me this long to come up with a healthy gingerbread recipe.  Since I’ve had the blog for 3 years now, the only gingerbread cookie recipe I’ve had is my Healthy Gingersnaps.

Every Christmas, my Mom used to make Snowballs as part of her Christmas baking.  They were chocolatey, minty, with a bit of crunch from nuts and graham crackers.  On and the best finishing touch…coconut! A party in your mouth!  I wanted to come up with a healthier version that was sugar-free with added protein.  Surprisingly, […]
