These little cookies pack a powerful chocolate punch! While waiting in the doctor’s office I was looking through a BHG magazine and found this recipe that looked pretty good. Of course I had no paper with me so I had to scribble it onto one of those annoying cards in the magazine that I normally ripe out and throw away. You might ask how this cookie is healthy for you? Chocolate isn’t all bad when it is dark chocolate or in the baking powder form, it actually has some health benefits. This recipe uses less sugar, one egg, and flax meal which adds fiber while keeping the calories down. Honestly, this is the first time I love a cookie that is on the healthy side and I think if you give them a try you will too.
