Springtime Monster Cookies Recipe

Delicious Homemade Springtime MONSTER COOKIES Recipe - sixtimemommy.com

Cookies are one of my weaknesses. I don’t think there is a cookie I don’t like. Being pregnant doesn’t help, but I’ve been trying to really limit my sugar and sweets intake. That can be such a challenge especially if one of the three things you crave is sweets.

So when I do get a craving and I really need to eat something sweet I tend to make my own. I’d rather that than store bought so I can not only control what gets put into it, but also be aware of exactly what is going in my body. Cookies is one of those things that I just love making and although I’ve really been enjoying these Tofu Chocolate Chip cookies — these Springtime Monster Cookies have quickly become my favourite.

They look delicious right? I can’t ever eat just one either. It’s usually 2 or 3 so I limit the amount of times I bake right now. I can’t help it when they are THIS good! I love making these into mini cookies too to send with the kids for school lunches. I try to be as healthy in their lunches as possible but sometimes a treat is nice right?

You can make them mini, or even a huge one – I’ve made this recipe into a cookie pie too. SO GOOD.

What are your favourite kind of cookies?
