A decadent slimmed down cookie bark – made entirely for Thanksgiving!
Cutting the butter and refined sugar in these cookies saves tons of fat and calories, and yet the soft texture and warm fennel aroma is clearly undeniable …
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
As you know, I’m Portuguese but that doesn’t mean we don’t love British and American traditions. That’s why we celebrate them! So, for sure on my house we are going to have a proper meal with lean turkey, roasted sweet potatoes (pecans included!) and the dessert? Yup! The whole Thanksgiving night wouldn’t be complete without a delicious cookie bark to munch on. If you have a couple more ideas for side dishes, make sure you keep me updated!
Is it just me or is this cookie dough really looking so freaking good?
This version of a cookie bark is winter-inspired and has lots of spices, plus it has additional benefits that come from the oats, olive oil and fruit ( find more on my HEALTHY PANTRY).
If you’re a healthy cookie lover, you probably know how hard is to find a good recipe that takes minutes to prepare but is mouth watering as well. Thus, I hope you really love this recipe. I am sure you’ll be chin down!
Another great thing about this cookie bark is that you don’t need to use dried cranberries or mulberries, like I did. If you have fresh on hand, GO AHEAD and use it.
