Wellness Wednesday: A little treat (the skinny version)

( I just realized it is Thursday---I was sick yesterday so it never happened haha)
These cookies are so so good! I got them off one of my favorite healthy food blogs: Skinny Taste.
I can't say that they are good for you but they are the healthier version--made with whole wheat flour and some healthier sweeteners like agave. Make sure you wet your hands when making them into balls, I didn't do this and they kind of fell apart when I pushed my fork on top.
