Healthy Cranberry Almond Cookies

Apr 23, 2020 | Snack

We’ve been doing a fair amount of baking around here; you name it…banana breads, chocolate chip cookies, brownies, you get the picture. I’m starting to find my kids want a sweet treat now every day, so I had to pull together something that is going to offer a bit more nutrition. 

These healthy Cranberry almond cookies are perfect, at only 100 calories each you can satisfy your cookie craving and actually feel full! The Oats and almonds come together to give you some real staying power. I enjoyed mine with a cup of tea and I was in bliss! 

Remember, no foods are off limits, it’s how you incorporate them into your overall diet that makes all the difference.
