Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies – Deliciously thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies made with no butter, or refined white sugar. The BEST healthier cookies!
Today, I bring you my most favourite recipe for Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies. Now you can stick to your healthy eating, and eat that cookie! Because you shouldn’t deprive yourself of the occasional treat. 😉
To make these cookies healthier, I used coconut oil instead of butter, coconut sugar instead of regular white or brown sugar, and dark chocolate chips. I’ve also added in 1 cup of quick oats, for extra healthy chewy deliciousness!
These cookies are deliciously thick and chewy, with a slightly crispy outside, and are loaded with dark chocolate chips. No one will guess that these cookies are healthier!
