You know I love a good cookie, but around this time of year, there's no shortage of treats to be had, right? This cookie is perfect because it's the best of both worlds. The maple syrup and peanut butter make it sweet enough to feel like a treat, but it's also gluten-free and dairy-free.
And — it even has protein! I added collagen to up the protein count a bit. Collagen has been really buzzy lately, and for good reason. First of all, it's awesome just as a protein. But beyond that, it's supposed to be great at strengthening skin, hair and nails, and improving digestion.
