I had a friend coming to visit. Just before she left to come over she told me she was on diet, cutting out all gluten, high fructose corn sugar, fried, and processed food, dairy, and alcohol. I saw an empty cookie jar and an opportunity for a challenge! Challenge accepted and expectations surpassed!!!

*These nutrition-packed cookies have no added sugar. They are my new favorite superfood  super cookies!
