I have been eating waaayyy to many cookies.

If you read my last blog post, you’d see that on Monday, I’m going on a bit of a health kick before Christmas – you’re welcome to join me and sign up to my weekly emails and our little Facebook Group!

While these cookies are nowhere near the nasty stuff you’d find in the supermarket, I think it is important for us all to recognise that sometimes there can be too much of a good thing – and I’m the type of person that struggles to stop at one, so sayonara 4 ingredient cookies for the next 12 weeks, but may those of you who aren’t embarking on my little health kick enjoy them all for me!
