15 Oct Flourless chocolate cookies
It’s confession time. I have a very sweet tooth. The problem is as we all know that too much sweet stuff is just not good for us. It’s generally packed with sugar and fat which have some serious health consequences.
So I’m on a bit of a mission at the moment to create healthy sweet treats. Today’s recipe is a variation of a recipe that has been around for ages. It’s a the ingredient peanut butter cookie that uses one cup of peanut butter, one egg and one cup of sugar. It seems like the most bizarre recipe but it actually works. The problem is all that sugar…
So I set off to mess around with the recipe, as I do, to create a much healthier version. I used chocolate almond butter for this recipe but free few to try out any nut butter that you want to. The chocolate almond butter that I used is the Ohmega brand. It has dark chocolate and almond butter in it and that’s it. Its a minimally processed product which is what I love about it. Just make sure that you like almond butter before you try this or just stick to peanut butter.
There are some great recipes out there for healthy sweet treats. This sugar free date squares are simply delicious. If choc chip cookies are your thing then these low carb choc chip cookies are also worth having around at all times. I often make batches of the various cookies so that I always have healthy sweet options around. Feel free to check out the rest of my blog for more delectable inspiration.
The next thing on my list to try is a chia pudding. It is packed with goodness and looks so delicious too.
