Healthy Yogi Cookies
The Yogi Cookie is my favourite post workout snack . This healthy cookie is packed with wholesome ingredients to help your body recover and give you “superpowers” :). These cookies make a great after-yoga snack full of things to give you that additional boost of energy you may need. They also make a nice, healthy dessert when you’re craving something sweet. Enjoy!
