My co-workers birthday is tomorrow but my boss and I decided to celebrate today (Monday) and it was my duty to come up with a healthy dessert for him. I wanted to make it super healthy but still delicious and I ended up altering these http://healthyisalwaysbetter.tumblr.com/post/19831216799/beccasfitlife-clean-eatings-banana-peanut! They are SO good, they are definitely one of my favorite cookies now! I gave a few to some other people as well to try them out and everybody loved them! They are easy and quick to make, have no added sugar, are vegan AND taste great!
