I have just been beside myself lately! I've spent years wanting chocolate chip cookies again, but there's always been the small dilemma: Refined-sugar free chocolate chips with zero harmful additives don't exist! So for this recipe I got creative and used the chocolate recipe that I've posted prior to this post. You simply remove the pre-made chocolates from the fridge, chop them into medium sized chunks, and throw them in the batter the same way you you would regular chocolate chips! Easy! And much healthier! 😉
So without further ado, we present to you organic, refined-sugar free chocolate chip cookies! For all the health nuts out there who still want to enjoy a taste of their childhood every now and again. 😉💕😊
Chocolate Chip Cookies!
2 cups whole *wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup salted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/2 cup golden Lakanto Monkfruit sweetner
1/3 cup raw honey
1 Tbs. vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 cups chopped homemade chocolates
*I used organic sprouted whole wheat flour, but any whole wheat flour will work the same
** Here at Chronically Beautiful we strive to keep all ingredients in our kitchen organic and free of any harmful additives in order for our food to be as clean and healthy as possible. I would highly encourage you as you shop for your ingredients to buy and use as many organic as you can!
Funny Story about these babies: I once had a couple of friends of mine try these chocolates that I make fairly regularly, and they told me that they were so good that if I wanted to make a man fall in love with me, all I'd have to do is feed him one of these! .... I have to admit, I tried that tactic soon after that visit with those friends, and needless to say... it didn't work! Ha! 😂😁👍
So unfortunately I can't say that these chocolate will find you true love! 😂 But I can say that they are delicious, healthy, and something that my family almost always has in our fridge to snack on. Not only that, but they only take five ingredients and they're super quick and easy to make large batches all at once!
There is one thing that I LOVE that was incredibly difficult for me to give up when I went on a diet to manage my Lyme disease, and that one thing is chocolate! I wouldn't call myself a "chocoholic" anymore, but I am still a lover of chocolate and the good news is that these chocolates are paleo, vegan, and refined sugar-free friendly! They're packed with healthy fats and they always satisfy your sweet tooth! This particular recipe is also fun to play with. The ones in the pictures are just plain chocolate, but you can spice these babies up with whatever whole food you may be craving. I usually top mine with coconut and almonds, but you could also flavor these with peppermint oil, or raspberry filling made with coconut butter. Whatever you enjoy, I encourage you to be creative and as always, bake with love! ❤😊
