Introduction: Healthier Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you enjoy chocolate chip cookies, but feel guilty every time you eat one--this might be the recipe to lighten your heart and decrease your pure sugar and white gluten intake a bit.
Half the flour you'll be using is "White Whole Wheat Flour", a great substitute in baking for those not minding a slightly denser crumb, but not willing to go completely off gluten; let's be honest--a completely gluten free dessert doesn't taste quite as good.
Also, there is a bit of coconut flour for those who have it.
Of course, the rest of the flour will be all-purpose flour.
When it comes to sugar, instead of using brown cane sugar, you'll be choosing from either coconut sugar, or turbinado sugar--or a mixture of both. A smaller amount will be white cane sugar, though.
