Chocolate chip cookies are an all-time favorite when it comes to sweet treats! But if you're a person who tries to stick to a clean diet, you may have to limit yourself to only one cookie, if any, when the occasion arises. Fortunately, this recipe is not only a clean version of chocolate chip cookies, it’s also a nutritious one! With ingredients like coconut, banana, and flax seeds, the nutrient content is rich and beneficial to our bodies, allowing the indulgence of chocolate chip cookies much more often.
Choosing dark chocolate chips also has a host of health benefits! Made from the seed of the cacao tree, dark chocolate is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet. Studies show that it can improve health and lower the risk of heart disease, and quality dark chocolate is rich in fiber, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, and a few other minerals! Milk chocolate and others that have added refined sugars will not give you these health benefits.
If you don’t like the bitter taste that dark chocolate can give off, don't worry! The sweetness of the bananas in this recipe makes up for it. And now with the holidays coming up, this is a great recipe to help you stick to clean eating, yet feel like you are having a treat!
