Clean eating, part two.

This post should really be called Clean eating, part three but much to my own chagrin, I failed to photograph Friday night's exploits with the Fusion Enchiladas (made veg) but I can assure you they were delish. Would definitely make again though I have to admit, the "Refried" Edamame wasn't worth the effort. To really speed up the recipe while retaining nutritional value, you could easily sub fat-free refried beans. On to cookies. Yes, cookies. Nomnomnom.

Easiest cookies ever? Yeah, pretty much. Please excuse my heinous cell phone photography, I'm out-of-town at the moment. Anyway, this was my first go-around with this recipe but I have a few variations brewing in my head so I might take a crack at jazzing these up in the very near future. I'll report back on my findings.
