How sweet it is to munch on guilt free desserts!

How sweet it is to munch on guilt free desserts!

These cookies are quick and easy to make during the week.  If you have kids who love their sweets (because who doesn’t?) then I highly suggest this recipe!  If not, I suggest it anyway because they’re sweet, chewy, and even offer health benefits! All of the ingredients are natural and most likely already in your clean eating/healthy lifestyle pantry.  Your kiddies will never know they’re not eating a traditional chocolate chip cookie — which are delicious in moderation, but remember they contain lots of refined sugars, gluten, unhealthy oils, and unhealthy carbs.  Why not file away a simple, healthy, clean cookie recipe like my FSS Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies to make any time, without all of the icky stressing out or worrying about nutrition?

If you don’t own these ingredients already, I highly suggest you buy them. They will serve their purpose for a while.  Trader Joes has everything on this ingredient list for a great price.  I usually buy in slight bulk because of the great deals!

So, I guess I’m especially helping my mom friends today in their quest to find delicious, nutritious, simple snacks to have around the house.

Remember my motto –> healthy pantry, healthy home, healthy life!

Seven ingredients, minimal equipment, and you’re good to go!  Try this recipe soon and be sure to make extras to go with an ice cold glass of soy milk, almond milk, or skim milk!  Yum, yum, and yum!
