Hello Healthy COOKIES!


“A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.” -Anonymous

Nothing gets me motivated quite like DESSERT. Just knowing that I can guiltlessly treat myself to a ‘yummy little something’ in the evening is all I need to get through a day of healthy eating. I’ve always strived for balance when it comes to my diet, but let’s be real, who doesn’t love cookies? Well, my friends, here is the recipe for cookies that will love ya right back! They’re a super simple, fun little recipe I came up with using just a few ingredients that I had in my kitchen. 

I was craving something sweet, but I knew that it had to be gluten, dairy and soy free. I wanted it to be low in sugar, but still super tasty, so I came up with this easy recipe for ‘just a few’ chocolate chip cookies. I added ripe banana for sweetness, and coconut flour and powdered peanut butter for the flour. I threw in some salted dark chocolate chunks (yum). I paired these with a scoop of coconut milk ice cream for a delicious and nutritious little treat. Tastes just like cookie dough ice cream. YUM! 

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
Serves 2
Who says you can't have healthy cookies? These delicious mini cookies are super delicious and totally gluten free, dairy free, soy free and delicious. And the best part? One serving yields 8 mini cookies. YUM!

    This is similar to how we make our cookies too, but we use at flour instead. It really helps when the cookie cravings hit.

      That is one serving! Sorry that was kind of unclear… the recipe makes two servings, but what I have pictured on the plate (8 cookies) is one serving!! πŸ™‚
