Chewy Berrylicious Protein Cookies

I have a bitter sweet feeling about the Holidays being over!

I mean, I was really enjoying having a few days off and hanging out with my family, resting and living it up.  But there was a part of me that was ready to get back into routine and healthy eating.

So on New Years Day I woke up and while I made breakfast, I whipped up these cookies and and my Blueberry Egg White Pancakes from My Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipe Book (over 300 healthy recipes by the way).  This way I was prepared with healthy quick and on the go options. 

You will get better results if you have healthy snacks available.

I love these healthy cookies because their are so many good ingredients in them that you can feel GUILT-FREE about eating them.  

They also have some HEALTHY FATS so they are really filling.  You can eat one or two little cookies and feel totally satisfied.  They are BERRYLICIOUS!

I used FREEZE-DRIED FRUIT, which is great because you can crumble it and get the flavor in every bite, and you only have to use a tiny little bit.  I normally use 2 tbsp and its plenty!

Check this out I found on this website:  http://store.honeyvillegrain.com/benefitsoffreezedriedfruitsandvegetables.aspx#.UOtFyDkTufQ

I love cookies, as you can see, I’ve posted a ton of Healthy Protein Cookie Recipes on My Pinterest Boards, so make sure you are FOLLOWING them.

Ok, I hope you are convinced to try them, they are deelish!
