Healthy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I recently joined a group of bloggers who challenge each other each month to come up with a cookie recipe based on a theme.

Healthy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

This month’s theme was healthy cookies (my favorite kind!) and I had a great time creating this recipe for Healthy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies.

That’s right, they’re indulgent chocolate cookies that are actually good for you. And I’m not calling them healthy just because they have less fat and calories than other cookies, but because they actually contain several essential vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants.

My family loves them and I hope you do too.

Not just low-fat, these cookies are actually good for you. Chock full of antioxidants, omega-3 and extra fiber, you won't need to feel guilty when you steal a few from the cookie jar.

Notes

If you REALLY don't like prunes, or just want a slightly less sweet cookie, substitute mashed avocado for the prunes. I prefer the cookies that way but my kids gave it the thumbs down which is why I published the prune version.

  5. I don’t know if I do or don’t like prunes… So I will have to try it that way. If I don’t, I do know I love avocado!! So I would absolutely love it that way, hopefully?

    I was actually lucky enough to taste both versions of this cookie. I agree with Corinne, the avocado ones were better, not so sweet. Amazingly, they did taste like I was cheatimg on my diet, I will be making my own batch today!. thank you for doing all the work for me.
