With a whole stick of butter, 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup of regular sugar, these cookies seem full of fat and sugar. Where is the "HEALTHY" aspect of these?? They probably are quite tasty...with all that butter and sugar. I won't be making them. Sorry.

The almond flour. I think the OP was being sarcastic but I could be wrong. While it isn’t healthy it does sound tasty.
