After making those Lemon Cheesecake Bars, I was on a lemon roll!! Get it? Get it? :D
I know, I'm cheesy... so let's get onto the fooood shall we?
This cookie dough is the springtime snack! It's light, it's fresh, it's summery and it's... healthy?! YUP.
It's buttery, yet contains no butter.
It's sweet, yet contains no sugar.
It's doughy, yet contains no gluten.
Heck yes. I'll take the whole batch please.

1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients, mix and set aside

Can you believe it? I think I'm crying with joy... Despite the clean, fresh lemon flavor, this tastes like one serious diet-buster. But 280 calories for a filling snack filled with fiber and protein? Sounds pretty darn good to me.
