Superfood Chocolate Chip Cookies

0

Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite treats to enjoy when I’m craving something sweet. I’ve worked for years to perfect a recipe that is simple, quick, and uses minimal pure ingredients. While I, and my family, really enjoy the recipe I now use, I thought I would try switching it up a bit and adding healthy ingredients to the mix so I can actually feel good about indulging. I made a batch and they were a hit! The kids are still begging for them, despite the good stuff packed into these cookies, which makes me feel better than just letting them eat regular cookies. In fact, I almost want to make sure they eat these daily! Try a batch and see if you like them too.

 

These chocolate chip cookies are filled with ingredients so good for you they might even be called healthy cookies. They certainly are better for you than traditional cookies. Make a batch and feel less guilty about indulging.
