My baking habits have changed drastically since I’ve been trying to eat healthier. I no longer buy the biggest bags of flour and sugar possible every month. In fact, the smallest bags of each last a very long time these days.

Although it’s necessary to limit the amount of baked treats, it’s nice to have one every now and then. A co-worker introduced me to this delicious glazed fresh apple cookies recipe. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to dust off my baking skills and bake up a small batch. Not only is it one of the most tastey cookies I’ve ever had, it’s only 100 calories per serving! (Yay!)

With all the temptations of high calorie Christmas baked treats ahead, I think these are a nice healthy(-ish?) alternative…

They’re so delicious, no one will guess they are low calorie!;)
