Almond Cookies with Pitaya Frosting

June 24, 2017

If you put a plate of "healthy" cookies in front of me, chances are I'll eat most of them- especially if they have superfoods in them! I have such a sweet tooth that if I would rather eat dessert than an actual meal sometimes. Anyone else with me??

 

These cookies are incredibly easy to make, I'm pretty sure its impossible to screw them up. They are not very sweet, so the frosting really gives them the flavor. If pitaya is too difficult to find or not for your taste buds, you can substitute with raspberry, banana, kiwi, peanut butter or strawberry. You can also just drizzle with melted chocolate rather than making frosting!
