Surprise! Surprise! I was browsing around on Pinterest and found these delicious looking cookies!! It looked easy enough and the ingredients seemed tasty. I finally had the chance to try them out today and they are definitely just as good as they look! It was nice that they were "no-bake" because it has still been pretty darn hot lately and the last thing I wanted was to have my oven on in the middle of the afternoon. I was a little unsure about the olive oil in the cookies but I went ahead with following the recipe as it was the first time. Later I did read some of the comments on the original recipe that also suggested using half olive oil and half coconut oil and using other types of nuts, so maybe next time I will experiment with the ingredients a little more.
