Beautifying Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Halloween kicks off a holiday season full of treats, and the final two months of the year can be relentless when it comes to opportunities to eat sugary offerings.
Although our products feed your skin the highest quality nutrients and essential fatty acids, we believe strongly that a good diet, low in sugar and rich in plants and healthy fats, is the foundation of truly beautiful skin.
Still, treats are going to happen (especially this time of year!), so let’s make them delicious, satisfying, and healthy. Here’s a recipe you can lean on all season long to fulfill holiday party dessert requirements while also sneaking in some good fats, minerals, and plant-based nutrients. They’re sweet, chewy, and super easy to make, and we know you’ll love them.
