So I was cheating a little on my diet the other day with some salty potato chips.
I know, the horror!
Just ate a few but I had a whole bag lying around the house, and I sure don't need that.
So I decided to do that every normal person would do, I baked cookies.
I wanted to see it I could come up with a good way to incorporate potato chips in them.
And I did, together with almond flour, spices, molasses and brown sugar they came out really good.
Sweet, salty, nutty and a mix between chewy and soft.
I had 1/2 and then gave away the rest…….
If that isn't self control..I don't know!
