WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE:
Dr. Mike’s Power Cookies are one of the most popular recipes in the 17 Day Diet lifestyle.
They are so versatile that you can have them for breakfast, dessert or a snack – your choice!
The best part? You can customize Dr. Mike’s Power Cookie and make it your own.
So, if you don’t like dried cherries, use any dried fruit you prefer; cranberries, blueberries, raisins, etc.
When you look at the ingredient list, don’t get discouraged. You may see ingredients that aren’t listed on the food list for the 17 Day Diet cycle you’re currently on…that’s ok.
You see, Dr. Mike believes that enjoying treats in moderation is fine. In fact, it helps you stay consistent on the 17 Day Diet.
Remember, this is about a lifestyle change rather than a short-lived diet that would be hard to maintain.
So, mix up a batch of Dr. Mike’s Power Cookies and enjoy these healthy treats.
