Mix Up Some Love: Valentine’s Day Cookies

Love is most assuredly in the air this week as Valentine’s Day approaches! If you are looking for a healthy option to satisfy your family’s sweet tooth, this recipe fits the bill without costing too many calories. What I love about these cookies in particular is the balance of healthy ingredients and an incredible taste. This recipe calls for honey which acts as a natural sweetener and dark chocolate M&M’s which are full of antioxidants. Grab your sweetheart and start mixing up a batch of these adorable Valentine’s Day cookies!
