For nearly eight weeks, I’ve been working on a new project called 30 to Lifestyle. It’s a health, fitness and wellness site done in partnership with my friend Christa behind Coaching with Christa. There’s a challenge element set to launch on September 1, which will include a month of workouts designed by Christa and recipes written by yours truly. To make it all the more interesting, we have sponsor companies who have donated products that we’ll giveaway as prizes! One of the prizes includes cookbooks to inspire your at-home kitchen experiences. I received a cookbook from one of our sponsors, Quarto Publishing Group, and the first thing I did was try a couple of simple recipes. That’s where these cookies come into play. They’re an easy and quick treat that you can throw together in less than 10 minutes.
