I call these happy instead of healthy because let’s just make those words synonymous from here on out, okay?
Once again, I tried to make Katie’s Fudge Babies and failed. Instead, I made these
They’re a mix of a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie and Katie’s Fudge Babies. I think they are healthy and delicious, and therefore, happy! They have dates instead of chocolate chips. Dates are an extreme source of antioxidants, so you should probably learn to love them! 🙂
These are my new favorite cookies. No joke. Better than a regular chocolate chip cookie because I know these have a lot of goodness in them so I can many (many, many) and not feel bad! Love that!
