So there ya go! These bad boys are soo good and definitely won't make you feel bad about indulging in a cookie or two (or three!). These cookies have a more fluffy texture to them, so this dough could also be used to make muffins! Either way, I really love that these are sugar free, exceptionally low in saturated fat, and have a bit of a protein boost!!
I hope you guys enjoy! :)
