Now I must admit, I am blessed to be a thin individual. It does help that a lot of my work backstage keeps me active and rarely sitting behind a desk for hours on end. I’ve done mini diets, often after holiday seasons full of cookies, to shed a few extra pounds. But some diets and attitudes towards food I just don’t get. What I’ve always been taught is eat in moderation, but eat. Have a treat every now and then, a little bit of chocolate when you really want it often satisfies a craving that may leave you grumpy or end up eating everything in your pantry.
These cookies I made aren’t something that you should apologize for eating one… or a whole plate. Really, don’t apologize for eating to me at all, I like feeding people. They are delicious, melt-in-your-mouth, and have protein (a little bit but it still counts). The recipe is from Joy The Baker and it’s gluten-free!
