I don’t like it when people try to make sweets and desserts in a “healthy way”. I don’t know about you, but the sight of a Black Bean Brownie makes me cringe. If you ask me, a sweet here and there won’t kill you. It’s only a problem when you eat those sweets everyday that you may start having some issues.
I don’t crave sweets very often, but recently I’ve been craving an awesome cookie. Normally when I want a great cookie I either go to Dara Marie’s for a sugar cookie with a dollop of icing or to City Bites to get one of their pumpkin cookies. Both are amazing.
As you can imagine, these cookies are also about as big as your face, so it’s probably not smart to eat it by yourself (Unless you want diabetes). Even though I know eating the entire cookie probably isn’t the best idea, somehow I always end up looking for crumbs at the bottom of the bag. Gone.
Tell me I’m not alone here.
Like I said, I don’t like when people church up a dessert and say it’s healthy because..
A) If it is healthy, it probably sucks.
B) Just because you didn’t use crisco and a pound of butter doesn’t mean that this dessert is healthy.. it just means it is the lesser evil.
So, instead of calling these cookies “healthy” I’m going to tell you the nutrition facts and you can decide how many cookies you’ll eat for yourself (I ate 2 today.. oops).
I found this recipe in The Vegetarian Times and decided to try it. It’s a simple recipe and I already had all of the ingredients in my pantry which made it super easy. I used regular margarine instead of vegan margarine.
Here’s the recipe from The Vegetarian Times:

Who to make it:
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! Remember, no dessert that is worth having is healthy. So use portion control and enjoy the heck out of yourself while you eat it. Make sure to hit the gym up too. haha
