If you don’t love chocolate chip cookies, I may have a hard time accepting you’re in fact, a real life human being.

Being a dessert lover, I’m always on the hunt to find or create clean recipes, so I can indulge in my favorite things guilt-free. Is there anything like a warm, gooey “real” chocolate chip cookie? No way. But is there a decent substitute to still get the cookie fix when eating lean, clean, and green? Yes, ma’am!

With that, I hope you indulge in these and love every single bite, because your body will love you too. And a cookie so clean you can eat them for brekkie?!…..yes, please!
