This is totally one of my ‘cheat’ recipes! Why? Well, it’s not all ‘whole food’ clean eating – yes there is flour and sugar in these!

Sometimes we just need a little treat that tastes good and guilty and it doesn’t hurt when it’s festive for Fall!

The good news with this is that you won’t blow your calorie budget or your waistline with this one.

*I recommend this as a welcome treat, not part of your healthy balanced diet (although, it really is not that bad)!

I LOVE the idea of putting on pretty festive themed paper plates or in little baggies and tying up with ribbon and giving as a guilt-free pleasure!

Enjoy and have a HAPPY FALL 🙂
