I love cookies. I love chocolate chip cookies. I mean, what’s not to love? Cookies have always been my go to food for something sweet and chocolate chip cookies have always been one of my faves. It was about time I created a healthier chocolate chip cookie recipe to satisfy my cravings. I already have my Healthy Oatmeal Cookies and my Healthier Peanut Butter Cookies on the blog, so this was a natural fit.
I think one of the things that makes these taste so good is the ground vanilla bean. It adds a nice sweetness. I had my doubts that this recipe would work and was pleasantly surprised when I tasted the batter. These are so amazingly good! I did use a little more sweetener than I normally do, because I didn’t know how it would turn out. Next time I may attempt them with less. I also might try sweetening them with dates. They are still far healthier than traditional cookies, which usually contain 1 1/2 cups of sugar.
