An easy fix, guilt-free treat — Healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Every week, cookies are baking in my home oven. My son loves, loves, loves cookies. It is, 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!
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.
My son’s all-time favorite cookie is Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with a traditional amount of sugar. But these are close. And to him, the calories per cookie and lack of sugar make them treat-worthy. For me — I love them! I can snack on one and not feel as guilty.
Experiment with other nut butters for different flavors. Almond butter is a particular favorite!
