Spice Cookies (not really . . . )

Standard

So in my attempt to eat healthier I found this recipe on the internet (no not Pinterest).  I still have a need for a cookie now and then, or everyday!  I quit buying cookies from the grocery store some time ago.  I decided that if I wanted cookies I’d have to make them.  I found this cookie recipe and it will blow you away. It’s not sugary, it’s totally healthy, full of protein and actually taste like you took a Spice Cake mix and added chocolate chips & walnuts to it.  You MUST try this sometime, you will be presently surprised! I love it when I’m pleasantly surprised . . LOL
