What a healthy chocolate chip cookies recipe?? So you might be starting to think that I have a bit of chocolate chip cookie obsession happening….who me? Nah, yeah, well okay – maybe. Todays little miracle was born out of a Facebook post by a friend – she posted this link to a recipe and in my every humble attempt to be a bit ‘healthier’ with my baking I thought I’d give it a go. I like ‘sneaky’ recipes where you can build in some goodness without it being noticed.
Anyway, on inspection of my cupboards I quickly realised I didn’t have all the things I needed so I improvised and created this recipe instead!
These cookies have a more ‘cakey’ texture than my ‘Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies’ but they still got a thumbs up from the teenager – who didn’t notice they were a healthy version, until about an hour later when he had some chia seeds stuck in his teeth (hehehehe). Next time I might even try replacing all of the brown sugar with rapadura and see how that goes – and I think you could even try coconut oil instead of butter for a dairy free option but I didn’t want to push the boundaries too far on the first go!
So give it a go they are yummy and the kids can’t be too sneaky with them – the chia seeds stuck in their teeth are a dead giveaway!
