Hello my joyous readers,

I love cookies. In fact, some would say I'm a cookie monster. Years ago I was also asugar-addict and my cookie monster habit certainly did not make me very joyous. I would eat too many cookies, feel bloated, fat and gross. I still eat cookies today, but because my diet is very balanced I don't suffer from sugar cravings and I only eat healthy gourmet cookies these days!

I created these cookies for my Morning Show segment on healthy boob foods last week. They could be eaten raw or cooked, it's really up to you!

Your "SEED Nā€™ SPICE COOKIES" sound great. Do you have a calorie count on this recipe? I will leave a comment after I try out the recipe. Thanks. :)

Hi I wondered if it would be possible to replace the banana with something else... my little one has just become intolerant to this :-( Thanks Miriam
