Lemon Cool Whip Cookies

Lemon Cool Whip Cookies ~ Light, Airy Cookies made with only 3 ingredients! via

Thanks to this wonderful sponsorship from Albion Fit I felt the urge to make a treat, Lemon Cool Whip Cookies, that was “Healthified”. Notice the equations. I don’t think cookies every truly become healthy but this one is lightened up a bit, plus it’s light and airy, yet cake like in texture. Let’s just say my hubby who swears he doesn’t like lemon devoured these. He went as far as to have a few the next morning on his way out the door.

He doesn’t eat breakfast. So this is saying a lot! I love how they were light, fluffy, yet chewy and just melt in your mouth. Don’t worry I was hesitant when I saw Cool Whip listed on the ingredients, but Jen over at Yummy. Healthy. Easy  made them and she pretty much rocks so I gave them a try!

    Cool Whip is practically air, so it makes these cookies practically air too? Definitely healthified! Love lemon anything!

    This is a great recipe, but I don’t like lemon. So I think I might try them with a strawberry flavored cake mix instead or another flavor. Thank you for the post. The cookies look divine.
