Personally, I loved the chewy, fudge-like texture!  Continue reading

This is the perfect treat for anyone who is looking for a completely healthy dessert. I know it sounds impossible but this recipe uses no sugar, no egg, no butter, no milk and no flour. It is astonishing that these cookies actually turned out the way I had planned and they taste just like ginger cookies. The thing with these cookies is that they have to be made thin or they may turn out too soft and crumbly.  Personally, I prefer the cookies to be slightly crispy, and chewy which is exactly how these cookies turned out.
