These chocolate little cookies are pretty yummy all by themselves, but I decided to sandwich them together with naturally sweetened apricot & apple jam. These apricot cookies make for a perfect on the go snack, or even an easy breakfast to grab on your way to work.
Made with only real wholefood ingredients and packed full of deliciousness! Not too sweet, with a little tartness and overall just perfectly balanced. Each bite just bursting with the bright flavor of apricot. How does that sound? Good? Good! Let’s get right to it.
These naturally sweetened apricot cookies are perfect for taking with you on the go or as a quick breakfast or afternoon snack. Click To Tweet
