Anyway, tonight I saw this pinned:

At first I thought, 
"Is this a joke? Those cookies look terrible."

Then, the comments looked promising, so I went for it.
4 ingredients, minimal prep, minimal cook time, nothing to lose.

As I'm making them, I start to think,
"There is NO way these only have 36 calories in them."
And,
"Healthy!? I hardly think they can be called "healthy" when they contain a cup of sugar."

As they were baking I looked up a nutrition facts calculator.

You just have to make 65 tiiiiiiiiiiiny cookies.
Or just eat 1/4 of a cookie.
Either way.



 Here's what mine look like:

Verdict: They were delicious!

So, if you want a quick, easy, yummy treat,
make these.

If you want a "healthy" cookie with 35 calories,
do not.
