Yep I did it! I took the Honey Stinger Ginger Snap Waffle, which I fell deeply in love with back in March-April when I was training for the Big D Half Marathon, and I made a Healthy Cookie taste (almost) just like them.
Well, they weren't quite as tasty because they didn't have the yummy, chewy-ness inside of them, but still....for being a no-grain, sugar free cookie, these things were DANG GOOD!
You see, I never used to eat gingersnaps. I might have had one in my lifetime, but when I was at mile 6 during a training run and I tasted that Honey Stinger Gingersnap Waffle, I was like WOAH! Seriously incredible, and I had to have some Gingersnap cookies.
So...I made it happen!
And what a great way to celebrate NATIONAL RUNNING DAY too! Taking the best mid-run fuel that I have tasted and making it into healthy cookies and sharing the recipe with you! So run to the store, get the ingredients, and make these cookies to CELEBRATE! Plus, have absolutely no guilt while eating them.

I remember in 2012 when we ran the Disney Princess Half Marathon, we over heard someone say they run because they can. That one day they may not be able to, so for now, they run! And that really stuck with both my mom and myself! So true! I love that. So today I celebrate running, BECAUSE I CAN!
Now, to celebrate with these healthy cookies!
