Hey friends, have you heard about those drooling cookies?
Well, let me tell you, these are no ordinary cookies. They are packed with nutritious ingredients and are oh-so-delicious.
I’ve made them for the kids at work as a tasty after-school snack, brought them as a treat to celebrate new arrivals, and even used them to satisfy my cravings.
The best part is that they are super versatile and can be enjoyed in so many different ways.
The other day I made a batch of his delicious berry and chia jam and decided to pair it with my freshly baked cookies to create the ultimate jam and biscuit sandwich.
It was a match made in heaven, and I added a little butter and whipped cream to make it extra special.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to dedicate these cookies to all the lovebirds out there.
So these cookies are a perfect choice whether you’re looking for a treat, a snack, or a unique way to show someone you care.
