In our house, snack time is serious business. With a 7 year old who is way too busy to slow down for more than a nibble or two of his crustless ham and cheese, and a toddler who thinks grazing is better left to sheep, I'm constantly trying to sneak nutritious treats into their Green Eats Snack Bowls. We have our favorite quick bites, the standard grapes, apples, carrot sticks, cheddar cheese, but these snacks don't really cut it for the after school set.
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350* F. Blend all ingredients but the chocolate chips in a food processor until smooth. You might have to scrape the sides down once or twice and offer up a prayer that your food processor doesn't die like mine did in the mid-cookie whirl. After you've processed those little beans into submission, stir in the chocolate chips. Use wet hands to form your cookies and press them onto a greased cookie sheet to flatten a little. Bake for 15-17 minutes. I typically get about 2 dozen 1.5 - 2 inch cookies out of this recipe.This is one cookie recipe you have to try to believe. Once they're out of the oven, I like to pop a pile of them onto
