Now I am not delusional enough to ever say that Fudgey Mint Cookies could ever be good for you, what I will say is that if you are going to have cookies anyway, these will be better for you. I added some Chocolate Silk Greens that are chock full of antioxidants and some Chocolate Mint Swirl that is filled with Omega 3's. I guarantee your family will not have a clue that you have stuck some nutrition in with their goodies.
A friend of ours stopped by as I was taking these out of the oven. He tried one and his exact words were "These are too good" as he grabbed two more and headed out the door to go shooting with Frank. Give them a try. I am sure that your friends and family will react the same way when they try them and you can feel good knowing that you are sneaking some additional nutrition into them.
