Almond Joy No-Bake Cookies (Gluten free)
I had a great couple days celebrating the birth of our first granddaughter. I think the angels sing each time a child is born. It is a sweet time. It is wonderful to watch my son become a Dad and our daughter in law become a Mom. What a the sweetest things in life. I look forward to going and seeing her soon.
These are a fun healthier option than eating an almond joy. They are a greaat little treat or a great way to get a protein boost. These are a winner.
