I can gladly spend days in the kitchen trialing healthy snacks and healthy dessert recipes, but you'll find me losing my mind trying to perfect a chicken in the oven recipe!

I love making healthy brownies, healthy cookies, healthy cheesecake, healthy mug cakes! But savory dishes aren't my cup of tea, I'll leave those recipes for my sister, Mirna and my mom.  

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe. I look for something to replace the ones we see in those yummy cookie shops at the mall. But whenever I try a recipe, it always proves to be so difficult to get that chewy-ness and proper consistency. 

But I finally got it! & I'm sharing it with you because you're part of my team, and I can't keep this goodness away from you! 

Why is this chocolate chip cookie recipe considered healthy?

It includes:

  • Whole grain flour, rich in B vitamins and loads of fibers
  • Coconut oil, tolerates high heat temperatures well and metabolized better by the body
  • Coconut sugar, all sugar is sugar, but this one has slightly more minerals and has a lower GI index, so less sugar spikes and hunger 
  • Egg, adds protein and healthy fat content to the cookies
  • Dark chocolate chips, dark chocolate simply has more antioxidants, so it's not less calories or less sugar, but it has more benefits than the regular milk chocolate. To make the recipe even healthier you can explore with cocoa nibs or raisins! 
  • & it's so insanely filling! 

Now let's dive into this recipe!
