Healthy Cookie Cake Bites
My munchkins new favorite ‘cookies’ are these Spiced Cranberry Banana Cookie Cake Bites! Soft and chewy, they are naturally sweet, moist and so healthy. I was quite surprised that my sugar princess enjoyed these so much. But, then again I love them too!
As a matter of fact, I had to leave town for a week and a half. She ran out of them while I was gone. Every day while we were Skyping, she would remind me that she ate all her cake bites and mommy needed to come home to make some more.
It is nice to be needed : ) and even nicer to make homemade healthy treats for my little one!
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
