oatmeal chia seed cookies

Have you made anything with chia seeds?

I hadn’t until today.

Rumor has it they’re good for you.
Fiber, protein, Omega – 3
These little guys have them all,
and in  BIG way.

I decided it was time to give them a try,
but truthfully, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Things that are good for you
don’t always taste very good;
I bet you didn’t know that 🙂

These cookies are different.

They are delicious,
and they’re healthy,
but I’m not telling my kids that.

Enjoy!
