So I need to be more organized and post at the same time every week but since I'm not that together, here I am trying to post everything at once!:) I thought it was about time to put a sweet snack up here and what's better than protein energy cookies?! I've made several versions of these delightful treats and this recipe is my favorite! So naturally friends, only the best recipes for you!
