Flu Fighter Cookies

I’M REALLY SORRY FOR THE LACK OF POSTS. You see, I usually eat at about 3 different places in a week (sometimes more, but they’re usually repeats of the same restaurants). Most of these food adventures, it’s with my friends since we all meet up once a week but lately, we haven’t been going out to eat. That’s because we’re working on a top secret project ;)

Anyways, I should probably have a restaurant review either tomorrow or the day after but in the mean time, here’s a baking recipe! These flu fighter cookies are the baked goods that I make the most. So yes, my specialty is cookies that are good for your health but they don’t taste that phenomenal and they’re kinda ugly… But hey, at least you’ll feel less guilty when eating them!

Not too pretty, huh?

I do make some modifications to the recipe regularly, but this recipe is very versatile! Sometimes, I don’t have all the ingredients handy so I’ll skip out on some of the spices. And you can also add in whatever extra stuff you like, I usually add chopped almonds, chopped walnuts, raisins, and diced-up dried apricots so feel free to experiment!
