I would have to say out of all the different varieties of cookies out there, chocolate chip cookies are my all-time favorite and probably always will be. Warm, cold, chewy, hard, big, small, I don’t think there is any way that I wouldn’t enjoy a chocolate chip cookie. Since it’s one of my goals to be living a healthier lifestyle, I was on a mission to find a healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe.
This is my kind of of healthy. Less fat, less sugar and the addition of a few “healthier” ingredients, making it a cookie you could choose to eat in moderation. It’s all about choices and moderation! Chocolate chip cookies should be a sometimes food, not an everyday food. Enjoy!
