When sugar cravings strike, I’m usually quite helpless. I give in easily. I’m overcome with sweetness. I’m in need of a cookie.
I feel ok about giving my body what it wants because what it wants and what it gets is usually homemade, gooey, low sugar, soooo good, and added with love (<–it really is the secret ingredient in everything, ya know).
Inspiration is so sweet, isn’t it?

These aren’t your every day chocolate chip cookies. They’re less sweet than normal cookies so if you’re wanting a sweeter cookie, simply add more honey or a bit of maple sugar.
I made these cookies on Sunday night. By the time I got home from work on Monday at 2 pm(!!) they were gone. Grrrrr and frustration. Guess they were good.
