A couple months ago, I emailed a recipe for Oatmeal Cookie Dough Bites, and they were such a hit that I wanted to share another healthy sweet treat. These brownie cookies have a date-sweetened creamy filling and are a great way to get a serving of beans—yes! beans!—while satisfying a sweet tooth. Check out the recipe here, and watch a video on how they’re made on our Instagram.
Help Us Spread the Health
There’s still time to help us send 12,500 free copies of our Evidence-Based Eating Guide to health care practitioners in all 50 states. Just $20 allows us to print and ship 16 copies of the guide to a doctor’s office, hospital, or health clinic. With increased publishing and shipping costs, we’d be even more grateful for your help in getting them directly into the hands of the very people whose lives can be changed with our practical guide to healthy eating.
