When you start to read the recipe for these cookies you will be amazed they only have 5 ingredients and flour is not one of them.  I don’t mean to confuse you but there is not flour of any kind in the cookies but they are some of the best tasting cookies you will ever taste – look out Pillsbury 🙂  My mom found these cookies and made them for my daughter but we had to sample them to see how they were and I can’t believe I gave my daughter the rest of the plate (minus about 6)!  Yes, they were that good!  Enjoy!!!!  For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com
