Who doesn’t love cookies? No one. Everyone loves cookies. Even people who love oatmeal and raisins have a cookie just for them. But that doesn’t mean the cookies are going to love you back. They’re just over there like, “Hey buddy, don’t blame me, you knew what I was when you ate 12 of me.” Luckily for us, Chef Kyle is sharing his delicious (and nutritious) Chocolate Chip Chia Seed cookie recipe this month. With two tablespoons of Chia seeds, these cookies are full of antioxidants, omega-3s, and of course yumminess.
