I’ll start this post out by saying ANYTHING mint chocolate chip is a yes in my book. Since I was a child, mint chocolate chip has always been my favorite flavor. From ice cream, to smackers lip balm, to my stuffed animals names. Mint is one of my favorite flavors ever, which is a little piece of the story as to how I came up with the name Investmint Baker. (full story to come another day).
Another favorite of mine from my childhood was the chocolate chip cookies from Tates Bakeshop. I remember sitting at my friends houses in high school, eating through entire packages of Tates cookies because they were simply, addicting.
So as the health revolutionary that I am, I had this idea to create my favorite cookie in my favorite flavor, and also make it healthy! By healthy I mean super clean ingredients with the addition of a secret ingredient that’s a superfood, and naturally gives these cookies their special and perfect mint green color.
What’s the secret ingredient? CHLOROPHYLL! Speaking of high school… this recipe really brought me back some years to science class, learning about chlorophyll and its magical properties for plants. Well, it also has magical properties for humans and it is definitely considered a valuable investmint to our health.
Chlorophyll is linked to natural cancer prevention, it is good for our livers, it has a ton of vitamins and minerals, it improves digestive health, detoxifies the body.. the list goes on and on. You can read more about it’s benefits here.
So there really should be no question if you should make these or not. The answer is CLEARLY a yes. They do not disappoint and you’re lucky if they last in your fridge longer than 24 hours 😛
Chlorophyll (mint flavor – optional. For this recipe, the chlorophyll is used for color so if you want to omit it, the cookies will still taste the same)
