Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

My kids and I are counting down the days.  Not until summer break, but until we leave for Peru.  We’re heading to Peru to go volunteer for 6 weeks in an orphanage near Cuzco.  We are so excited I can’t even tell you.  Interested in reading about our story?  You can find it here.

Until then, we’re baking away to try to earn money for our trip.  And this was a perfect one to take to work to sell.  Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

My Secret Recipe Club assignment this month was Dancing Veggies.  Amanda started cooking in high school when she wanted to start eating healthier.  She’s been cooking ever since and her blog is her outlet for sharing these healthy recipes.

This is definitely a more healthy cookie recipe that I’m used to making.  (I know, don’t judge.)  But oh so delicious!
