OK, I need these in my life every single day. These crunchy chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies are exquisitely AMAZING. I never imagined to see a day that a healthy cookie recipe would live up to my Mother’s, but the time has miraculously arrived and I am not complaining! The dark chocolate chips generously distributed throughout the peanut butter biscuit leaves an indulgent surprise – especially when munching on them straight out of the oven (if you’re like me, you may burn your fingers – be patient!)

My cookies are proof that you can substitute the ingredients in sugary dessert recipes for a healthy version that tastes just as delightful! Let me give you a couple examples:

1 cup of butter = ½ cup coconut oil

1 cup of brown sugar = ½ cup rice malt syrup

Simple substitutions make it easy to recreate your favourite recipes into a guilt-free treat that you won’t regret. So go on, grab another cookie… you know you want to.
