In a nutshell, these are just delicious. I don’t know about you but it kind of gets boring having to always use almond flour or coconut flour. So, I decided to change it up a little and introduce new flavors and textures. The best part is that these are healthy cookies that can be enjoyed by kids as well. All the benefits without the unruly behavior and sugar-spikes, from sugar-laden, carb-heavy, empty-calories, they get from regular cookies.
Most of my baking is sugar-free but once a while you will find that I may use other alternatives. You can easily replace sugar with your choice of sweetener. The recipes are very flexible and adaptable. I hope you enjoy these!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In a bowl mix butter, vanilla, sugar, baking powder, xanthum gum, salt
Slowly mix in flour and fold in chocolate
Form round dough and place on the sheet
Bake for 11-13 minutes
You can adjust sugar based on your taste. I generally do not eat anything to sweet so my recipes tend to have mild sweetness to them.

Sometimes I tweak traditional recipes and sometimes I get bit by the creative bug and whip up new and unique ones. I’ve had the opportunity to try a variety of cultural dishes from the quarters of France to the mountains of Iceland, to the islands of Greece to the food trucks of New York City. They’re all full of flavor and I like to create healthier versions of these dishes while keeping the flavor intact. They’re healthier, so you can eat them all of the time! Enjoy these quick, easy (for the most part :-)) and oh so delicious recipes!
