I've been getting tons of emails from parents asking for healthy cookie recipes. That request is actually a lot harder than you would think. The words 'healthy' and 'cookies' rarely go into the same sentence. And for good reason. But we here at weelicious are up for any challenge. Not only are these little almond cookies super fast and easy to make, you only have to keep a few ingredients on hand in order to whip them up on a moment’s notice!

The day I made them, Kenya and I had a few and were in heaven. He kept begging for more, but I always try to limit him to one or two. I wish I could say the same thing for my girlfriends. They came over to watch the Bachelor finale (yes, I do love some mindless television now and then), and not only did the ladies enjoy them, they finished every last one! Next time I have to remember to make a double batch.

By the way, these cookies are delicious even if you eat wheat and dairy.

    I have to try this whipped caottge cheese. I’ve never heard of it, but it sounds very promising. I caottge cheese,almost every day, because it’s so easy and high protein. I’m not exactly crazy about it, though, and I think the texture is part of it.

    Could Tahini work instead of almond butter?
