One of the fun things about enjoying a healthy life is playing with recipes. Ever since we posted how to make any recipe healthy it’s almost a game to adapt recipes.

We decided to tackle the pinnacle of homemade desserts with the Nestle Chocolate Chip cookie recipe. We made simple replacements suggested in our post of gluten free flour, healthy butter alternatives and coconut sugar. These chocolate chip cookies are low glycemic (so they won’t raise your blood sugar or stress insulin responses). They’re also dairy free so there’s little worry for those with allergies.


Next time, I’d like to try coconut flour to increase the protein (which helps with cellular growth and repair), healthy fats (which can boost your metabolism and have antimicrobial and antiviral properties) as well as fiber.
