Ok, I’m just going to say it. My summer guilty pleasure is Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City. I know that its just a bunch of crude housewives bickering back and forth, pointless entertainment. But it’s so entertaining! I gotta say, I’m totally Team Bethenny. Not that I think she’s the nicest character of the series or anything, but because I love her one liners and just find her quick wit entertaining.
On the show this season, there was a special emphasis on Bethenny’s status as a “chef”. So naturally, I had to do some investigating. Turns out, she’s a natural foods, self proclaimed “Skinny Chef”, and has several books out teaching women how to be naturally thin (whatever that means…) I did some more digging and found some of her health food recipes. Me, being me, of course I need to try one of these recipes! So off I went.
I’ve always been wary of health foods – especially health desserts. But, these cookies are good! I wouldn’t be posting them otherwise. Although, I’m a little iffy about calling them cookies. They’re shaped like cookies, but the texture is almost a little bread like…but delicious without all the butter and extra calories. Win-win.
