Cookies are so much fun, so much fat and so much sugar! Here is a delectable treat with way less fat (olive oil, not butter) and less than half the sugar. (For some of you who are still adapting their taste buds to lower sugar content, you might want to add one or two tablespoons of unrefined cane sugar.) When I think of all the trans fats we consumed while we were growing up–who had a clue what we were doing to ourselves? This cookie is high in protein, has great texture, and I bet you can’t eat only one! And, because it is healthier, don’t eat twice as many or you have defeated the purpose. Keep them in the freezer and get one (or two?) at a time for your lunch–don’t cheat!
