Cookin’ Greens Double Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches


The secretly healthy Cookin’ Greens Double Chocolate Cookie Sandwich recipe is  super-quick (9-minute baking time), but also the prep time is made a breeze with Cookin’ Greens pre-washed and pre-chopped greens. These chocolate cookies will initially be more cake-like. Once in sandwich form, with the luscious chilled vanilla icing, it’s like sinking your teeth into a soft pillow.
