I went to visit my bff, Lauren, in NYC this past weekend. She knows I am picky when it comes to food so she always takes care of me, taking me to good, fresh, and wonderful restaurants with healthy options!
I love chocolate. I love dessert. I really do. So when Elise (from Lillybelle Foods) told me about her recipe for a healthier version of a chocolate chip cookie I was alllll about trying it.
Regardless of being considered more healthy, I LOVED IT ! Try it, and YOU tell me how amazing it is, k?
- The only sweetener in the cookie is honey (and the chocolate chips)
- No butter! We used only coconut oil
½ c whole wheat flour
½ c almond meal
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 T honey
1 ½ tsp vanilla
½ cup chocolate chips
1 T coconut oil, melted is ideal
2 T almond milk
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine all wet ingredients in a smaller bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry and add chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Makes about 6 cookies.
For a vegan version, use 1 T ground flax seed + 3 T warm water instead of the egg, and use maple syrup instead of honey.
