“What Could Be Simpler” Cookies

Sometimes it’s all about simplicity. On the trek to a healthy rest of our lives, I look for healthy replacements to some of my vices. I gave up most sugar. I’m generally okay with that. Then a certain time comes around. I have pretty severe PMDD and I crave food: nothing specific but just want to eat and eat. Stupid hormones. Anyway, want to hear (well, see) the recipe for the simplest cookie recipe ever? You can’t mess this up! I added sucanat sugar sprinkled on top but it lost it’s crunch so next time I might try raw sugar instead. You can do add-ins like raisins, walnuts, or chips (chocolate or carob) but they all add calories and potentially fat. I like them plain & simple.
