The average person will eat about 35,000 cookies in a lifetime. So why not have one that also adds good nutrition?
This recipe is especially great if you have picky eaters in your family. Kids will love eating vegetables that look and taste like a cookie. The carrots are excellent for eye health because they are rich in beta-carotene and Vitamin A. The zucchini helps boost immunity, while fighting cardiovascular disease. These vegetables, along with the dark chocolate and oatmeal, add fiber, antioxidants and vitamins all packaged into a delicious cookie treat.
