Every Wednesday, we feature little Miss Soul in the kitchen with mama, baking up a storm.  This week for Valentine's Day we made Fairy Dust Cookies, with healthy black beans and stevia. These cookies are low in sugar, BUT loaded with fiber, healthy fats and flavor! A total HIT! They didn't last long in our house.

Check out this fun video of Miss Soul in the kitchen, showing us how to make the perfect cookie! (licking taste test approved! LOL)-- See below for recipe
