Monday Munchies - Best Healthy Cookies Ever!


My family loves these cookies! They are such a huge hit that I can't believe I actually got a picture of them before they were devoured. What I love about these cookies is that they are healthier for you but they also are great for a quick snack or breakfast. They are loaded with seeds, oats, dried fruit, and of course, chocolate. Below you will find two different recipes (both of which are delicious), one is gluten-free and the other uses apple sauce. If you would like to see the original recipe, you can visit a previous blog post here. Bon appetit!


The above picture is of the original Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Chip Muesli Cookies
