Starburst Chocolate Chips









     It's that time of year for all things fireworks...even when it comes to cookies!  And I don't hate it!  In fact, who doesn't love a little sparkle!?  To add to the celebration, each of these 25 cookies are only 69 calories, 8.6g carbs, 6.6g fiber, 2g net carbs, 4g protein and 4.6g fat (macros don't include sprinkles).  So, if you are in charge of bringing dessert to the party (...even if the party is just staying at home by yourself), put this at the top of the list!
