I’m definitely one to fall into the sweet craving trap after a meal. I’m always digging for that handful of chocolate chips or spoonful of ice-cream, but this time it was Erik. After dinner he turned to me and said, “I wish there was healthy dessert that we can have, like cake.” This is the guy who always yells at me for wanting a piece of chocolate after dinner and believes the cravings are all in my head. Oh well, I’m always up for dessert and an experiment.
I decided to try making a healthy version of a chocolate chip cookie and these turned out super good. They are almond flour-chocolate chip cookies with coconut oil and coconut sugar. To keep my husband’s interest, I didn’t cut the butter from the recipe but I’d like to believe they’re a healthy alternative when it comes to dessert. My only regret is forgetting to check the expiration date on my baking soda prior to mixing everything together… my cookies turned out a bit flat!
