My people expect dessert after every meal.
And if you think breakfast is immune, you’re mistaken.
And if you think that I can fool them with grapes or strawberries, you’re mistaken.
And if you think the kids don’t notice when you get an ice cream sandwich and hide it behind your back and sneak bites,
Matty B, you’re mistaken.
The mission: create a cookie that could be consumed, without guilt, anytime of the day or night.
Must be low in sugar.
Must be fast and easy.
Must have some sort of nutritional value.
Must actually taste good. I’m competing with ice cream sandwiches here, people. It’s gotta be competitive!
And as a bonus, you don’t have to eat these cookies in hiding, listening to your children say, “What are you eating, Daddy?”
