I am an absolute sucker for something sweet, if you hadn’t discovered that by now! This recipe was a product of last nights cravings immediately after my Quorn Bolognese with sweet potato. Diets aren’t about restrictions, leading a healthy lifestyle requires balance and enjoying the foods we like. Yes, everything in moderation, lets not pretend these are spinach and kale cookies! BUT, after a full day of work, training for at least half an hour, its OK to enjoy a chocolatey biscuit.

I hope you agree, enjoy training, baking and eating these! Comment below and let me know how they turned out.
