Loyal store customer Mary knows a thing or two about healthy snacking on the go. She's a kindergarten phys ed teacher and a weekend warrior marathon runner who travels the country to race. So when she told us about these nutrition packed, portable cookies, we listened! These nutrition-packed cookies boast whole grains, beta carotene-packed sweet potatoes and anti-inflammatory spices. Oh, and they're delicious! Bake these, tuck them in the freezer then grab one on your way out. Our new favorite breakfast. Thanks Mary!
