Every week, cookies are baked in my home oven. My son loves cookies—they are, in fact, his one guilty pleasure. But as a college student-athlete, he’s looking for a healthier alternative.

While I’ve experimented with multiple recipes, this is the one we’ve landed on– for now! Kind of like… the flavor of the month!

Why This Recipe Works

What makes these Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies a bit healthier — is they contain no sugar. Sweetened and moistened with honey and banana, they have a cookie-like texture.

Our all-time favorite cookies are Chocolate Chip Cookies and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. These healthy alternative cookies are also delicious, yet lower in calories, and naturally sweetened. Perfect for healthy snacks!
