Healthy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who else loves chocolate chip cookies? I know I do, these healthy vegan chocolate chip cookies are perfect for people like me who love cookies but don’t want to feel guilty after eating one. Yes that’s right, these are surprisingly “healthy” for a cookie!

You’re probably wondering what makes these cookies healthier than a traditional cookie. Well firstly they are packed with a ton of fiber and potassium. And they aren’t packed with refined sugars and added cholesterol from animal bi-products like traditional chocolate chip cookies. You wont believe how addictively delicious these bad boys are.

Let’s get started:

These healthy chocolate chip cookies are made with spelt flour which surprisingly has some amazing health benefits. It’s high in fiber so it is great with combating bloating, excess gas, and diarrhea. The fiber in the spelt is also helps lower dangerous levels of cholesterol in the body.

Nut butter butter is also an added benefit as well, whether you choose almond or peanut butter they both offer  benefits like protein, vitamin, minerals, and fiber.

Not only are these cookies healthy AND delicious, but they also come together in just a snap. Oh yeah did I mention that this is a one bowl recipe? You guys know I love one bowl recipes because that always means EASY CLEAN UP!

These are the perfect cookies to make for just snacking or you can share them with friends. But they’re so good I’m not sure how many of these are going to make it to your friends and family lol.

Take these the extra mile and make them into Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches! I recently found a new dairy free ice cream called NadaMoo. I was so pleasantly surprised with how GOOD NadaMoo tastes; most vegan ice creams you can tell they are well, vegan ice cream. The NadaMoo rocky road taste just like if not better than rocky road you would buy from a traditional ice cream shop.  vegan ice cream sandwichesvegan ice cream sandwichesvegan ice cream sandwichesvegan ice cream sadnwiches This decadent ice cream squished between two of these cookies was one of the highlights of my summer.
