Who doesn't like sweets? We all have sweet tooth or cravings for something or the other. These days we are alert on being health conscious, diet conscious, eating right, portion control and more. All it comes to eating right, right portions and every consumption or intake in moderation.
We are the controller of our lives. In my house I try to control portions, eating right and in proportions what we consume.
Being an Economic student I try to improvise things that fit my budget and at the same time, doesn't compromise food and health.
Health is wealth. So I consider health as my assest. I have started my health management in my family. If I stay healthy, I will be able to see another day and take care of my family and vice versa.
Enough philosophy, I will cut to chase. Jolene from moms club made delicious mouth watering chocolate cookies for sumner party and I give her thumbs up! I tweaked her recipe to suit my family needs.
I did some testing at the ease and comfort of my home kitchen. So some of you can enjoy this recipe and the guilt free cookies. Kuddos!
