Peanut-Butter-Chia-Seed-CookiesWe try to eat healthy around here and that includes not buying preservative filled snacks.  My goal is to eat fresh, real food when we can so ours snacks include a lot of fresh vegetables and fruit.  Still, it is nice to have a cookie once and a while and these Peanut Butter Chia Seed Cookies are ones that you can feel good about sharing and serving.  A healthier cookie without sugar?  Sign us up!
