Collagen Chocolate Mint Thins

Do you love chocolate and mint together? Because I sure do. I also happen to love satisfyingly-crunchy cookies. And I love collagen. Lucky for me (and everyone else like me) this recipe combines these three of my favorite things. These cookies are rich, crunchy, addictive, and contain a punch of Traditional Tonic Nourishing Collagen to protect your hair, skin, nails, and whole-body health. They’re basically the best cookies ever. They also just might taste a little bit like a favorite childhood treat but I’ll let you find that out for yourself.

I’m going to be honest; these cookies take a little bit more effort than our usual easy recipes. The ingredients are fairly standard and none of the steps are particularly complicated but these cookies might take a little more attention and time. Trust me, though, when I tell you that these are absolutely worth it. When you eat one of these cookies, you’re going to want another one. When you run out of these cookies, you’re going to want to immediately make more. They’re just that good.  Make baking these cookies part of your self-care this weekend and you’ll see what I mean.
