Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Bad image, but it’s so true.
So onto the cookies shall we?
Okay, so first of all I’d like to apologize for not coming out with a healthy chocolate chip/chunk cookie recipe sooner. I was so intimidated. All chocolate chip cookies have a ton of butter and a bucket full of sugar. That won’t be happening here, people.
Here at Desserts with Benefits, we make nutritious recipes
So these Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with whole grains, no butter and most importantly, NO white sugar! And to make the cookies suitable for everyone I made them eggless, but you can try using an egg instead of the egg replacer if you like.
Either way though, these cookies are going to be delicious! These are soft, buttery and sweet just like regular chocolate chip cookies, except the chocolate- and cookie-size have been super-sized!
Time for a nutrition label showdown! Rachael Ray’s nutrition label is on the left, then Desserts with Benefits nutrition label is on the right:
Oh my goodness, can you believe the difference in these nutrition labels?!
- 570 calories vs. 230 calories
- 26g fat vs. 14g fat
- 62g sugar vs. 6g sugar
I think it’s pretty obvious which cookie wins in this competition 😉 Plus, my recipe is much lower in saturated fat and cholesterol, and higher in fiber and protein. I’ll take the whole stack of cookies below, thank you very much.
