It’s Almost Fathers Day!
For Father’s Day this year, I wanted to make a healthy dessert that had my husband’s favorite flavors in it, and was also healthier and tasted delicious!
Does anyone else find it hard to make a healthy dish that you husband or father actually likes???
I take this as my personal challenge every time I am coming up with a recipe. My husband, Cody, is a tough food critic. All my recipes are tested on him and my kids to make sure they are really delicious. If I get the seal of approval from him, I know the recipe is a good one!
I went to work trying to find ideas for a healthy dessert recipe. Should I do a brownie recipe? No, my previous attempts at a healthier brownie were met with …. criticism, shall we say. How about a cheesecake? I definitely want to do a cheesecake because my husband loves cheesecake, but I didn’t have by cream cheese in the house.
So after some in-depth research, (aka late night Pinterest searching), I realized that I needed to make the ultimate candy-inspired cookie…. the Turtle cookie!…
