Love Language Cookies






     There are 5 main love languages...cookies did not make the list, however they have always been my #1 love language, so I guess there are actually 6 in my book (...I penciled in the margins).  My affection has always stayed true, never wavered.  My passion continues to grow when consumption only sets me back 45 calories, 3g net carbs, 2.4g protein and 2.3g fat (macros are for 1 Tablespoon dough and 1 Tablespoon Frosting).  Say what you will, for me cookies are the universal language of love...and I don't hate it!  Find your voice and speak your truth.

Ingredients for 19 Cookies~
1 cup Quick Cooking Oats (I purchased an off brand and the Oats were more meal and less flakes)
1/2 cup/4oz unsweetened Applesauce
3 Tablespoons Egg Whites
1/4 cup Brown Sugar Erythritol (sub with Swerve Granular Erythritol)
Dash Cinnamon
Dash Salt
