Chocolate Chip Cookie Pancake Sandwiches

15 May

Say what?! Chocolate chip cookies..in pancake form..and healthy?!

I love my healthy pancake recipes! It’s so great to be able to eat the foods I love, yet in a healthier light. And like always, just because their healthier, the taste doesn’t suffer one bit. Actually, I think these taste better than regular ole’ pancakes. I mean, come on, they are chocolate chip cookie flavor..

And you won’t believe this one. They are made with a vegetable! Now you’re really starting to wonder if I’ve gone crazy. Nope. These are real. Real healthy. Real ingredients. Real good.

You may have seen the idea before, but making them into pancakes, I bet is something new. Can you guess the secret ingredient?!

Chickpeas.

Yep. Don’t judge until you try it! I promise you that you will not taste the beans. It will taste like delicious chocolate chip cookie dough. I know you’ll love it!

Using chickpeas instead of flour is not only a great way to make something gluten free, but also lower in calories, higher in fiber, and higher in protein! Take that for a healthified pancake. These pancakes are sure to surprise you’re guests..in a good way!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

14 Apr

Okay, so I cheated with this one. Not necessarily a homemade recipe this time. But I’d like to think I made it my own by adding in certain things:)

Are you a big mint fan? York Patties. Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Shamrock Shakes. Well this is for you!

It was my boyfriend’s birthday and I was trying to think of what to make him. He loves Mint. He loves Chocolate Chip Cookies. So what did I come up with? Chocolate chip cookie cake!

But I was a little too lazy and short on time to make homemade dough. So I went the easy way out :)

This is made with store bought dough. Yet..special ingredients added it! So I guess I can still call it my own:)

3 Ingredient Cookies

26 Mar

Wait what?! Only THREE ingredients?! And did I mention NO added sugar?! Cookies could never be that easy! Or healthy! Well, actually..they most certainly can! These are not only easy and so very healthy, but extremely delicious!

Sunday night at my bible study, one of the girls brought cookies over for us all. They looked so good, like all oatmeal cookies look, that I had to try one. But what my mouth tasted at that very moment was no ordinary oatmeal cookie. This cookie was soft, chewy, and packed with such a delicious banana flavor! I had to ask what the ingredients were. And that’s when she told me it was so simple and only three ingredients! Of course, I went home only to make them the next day.

But of course knowing me, I spiced it up a bit and added some extras to bring out the flavors. Try it as you will. For me, chocolate is always a must. But any choice you make, it’s delicious. And healthy. And easy. Did I mention absolutely delicious?!

These will certainly be a weekly creation and my new favorite dessert every night. And no, I am not sorry that I ate over five of them when first bringing them out of the oven. Or that I’ll probably eat some for breakfast.  I did say they were healthy..right?
