Chai Spiced Cookies

Here at MSQ, we believe in keeping a fully stocked snack drawer. To help curb cravings and to avoid overeating later in the day, we always keep healthy (and delicious!) snacks on hand to share in the office. Out of all the snacks we have, these chai spiced cookies are usually the first to go. They're sweet and soft, but healthy enough to leave you feeling guilt free (just try not to eat the whole batch!).

Each delicious bite is paleo, grain-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free! Try them and let us know what you think.
