Everyone loves a cookie jar! 

We are focusing on whole food sources in our household which has been fun for me and gets me more creative in the kitchen! Although we are eating clean, we still crave sweets from time to time (ME ALWAYS)! The Ancient Nutrition team sent me their Bone Broth Protein which I have been absolutely loving. I decided to whip it up into this recipe for some extra protein. I love how it bakes, not to mention the nutritient value it adds into these delightful cookies. 

These cookies are soft and chocolatey in every bite! My husband loved them too (he still doesn’t know what the ingredients are… all that matters is that he liked them, am I right?
