Hello divas! I hope that you have had a fabulous weekend and are ready for another week ahead. Mine was pretty good. As I am still healing from a foot injury, I spent most of it on the couch watching football and shopping for Christmas gifts. I don’t know about you but I am so excited that Christmas is just around the corner. If you know me (and/or read this blog) you know that I love this time of year with all the fun holiday flavors. I especially love Christmas cookies. So today I am sharing another easy healthy recipe to help you enjoy the season without all the extra sugar and calories and fat – my whole wheat peppermint chocolate chip cookies.
There are so many yummy flavors of Christmas time that I love cooking and baking with – red velvet, gingerbread, eggnog and, of course, peppermint. And I love cookies but we all know that they are not always the healthiest options. So I set out to make a healthier version of one of my favorite recipes, peppermint chocolate chip cookies.
I opted for whole wheat flour instead of the normal all purpose. You can also use oat or almond if you are looking for something a little more on the gluten-free or vegan side. I also used dark chocolate chips (because we all know those are good for you lol) and the peppermint chips for that chocolate peppermint flavor. You can opt for peppermint extract instead of the chips if you prefer. Finally, I used a baking sugar substitute instead of sugar for this recipe. Though any sugar substitute such as stevia or honey should suffice.
