Thursday Treat!   Chocolate Chip Beauties!  

Chocolate chip cookies are by far my all time favorite cookie.  (In case, you didn't know that already!)  So I tried something new in a very simple recipe today.   I decided to add some collagen into these cookies.  That is why I called them Chocolate Chip Beauties, since anti-aging is one of the benefits of collagen!  One thing I discovered is "yes", you can bake with collagen!  In fact, since I was using a gluten free baking mix I noticed that the little bit of collagen seemed to take out the grainy taste from the baking mix I used. 

Here are a couple links, if you are interested in learning more about the benefits of collagen.
