Healthy-ish Mini Whole Wheat Scotchies

Hi My loves.

It’s 2012 – I know, you can’t believe it!!  Me neither, to be honest;  but I know it’s going to be a fantastically-amazing year. You know how I know that – – because, I’m going to make it a fantastically-amazing year.

You should too. Be fantastically-amazing … it will make you smile :).

Let’s chat for a little bit, shall we? Let’s talk resolutions. – I don’t do the whole resolution thing.

I just don’t buy it. We commit to doing something, and then get all excited – do it for a while and most of us will get sick of it and then just stop. And why January 1st? If you want to get something done – –

JUST DO IT!!

Don’t wait for new years eve – – or a special date. Today’s special – – you’re alive and healthy …. DO IT TODAY!! *woot woot* that was my daily motivation.

Now, that I’ve started to be all wisdom-ist (remember how I make words up (https://livingthesweetlifeblog.wordpress.com/2011/11/24/well-thats-random/)… I apologize for my lack of  understanding when it comes to english – – and yes, it is my first language :().

Anyways … as I was saying, now that I’ve started to impart my wisdom on all you good-looking kids – – I want to help anyone who decided this would be the year they are going to get healthy. That’s right – I have a healthier recipe for COOKIES for you.

Now, THIS is how to get healthy ;)

Now, just because I said they’re healthier than my norm. don’t eat all … share them. That would be like doing a double whammy to start the year off!! ~ yummy treat for you and you’ll make a new friend.

See… 2012 IS going to be a fantastically-amazing year!!
