Watchin' What We Eat Wednesday Cookies Edition

I have been swamped! I can't explain it to you all. I feel like I can't get everything done I am suppose to and here I forgot to post Watchin' What We Eat Wednesday! I made a list and try to prioritize all of the important things but I still can't fit everything in and I feel so overwhelmed! I thought that with the twins going to school for 3 hours a day that I would get so much done but it just has not worked out like that! :( I gained 5 pounds two weeks ago and I stayed on plan and I think that has frustrated me too! I lost 4.4 at last night's meeting. Anyways here is WWWEW Cookie Edition, share your cookie recipes! Come share your lightened cookie recipes!

RR: I like to do activities with the kids during the day and here is one recipe I have had for awhile that I have been wanting to try. The kids loved making these. They are really easy to make and taste GREAT! I have not had a homemade chocolate chip cookie in 6 months and it was so good. Each cookie is about 3 bites. Totally worth the points or should I say POINT lol!
