Love cookies? Then these healthy recipes are a must try.

Pumpkin Chocolate chip cookies

I am sure you’ve had plenty of the pie already so time to move on and put this awesome vegetable to tastier use and refresh your taste buds. With only about 100 calories and 2g fat this cookie will keep you hooked long enough. To begin with, preheat the oven to about 360F and cover the tray with baking sheet and parchment paper.

To prep the dough, mix the flour, water, arrowroot, sugar, pumpkin, coconut oil, and spices in a large bowl and continue to do so to avoid any clumps until its consistent yet slightly gooey. Throw in some chocolate chips, give it a good stir and have them shaped correctly on the baking sheet using your hands. Bake at 350F for 13-15 minutes and only get it out of the tray once it cools down for about 10-15 minutes. This will harden the exterior and leave the interior moist and gooey.

Breakfast cookies

With bananas and oats in the mix this recipe can hardly go any wrong with nutrition and taste. You can throw in some chocolate chips and cranberries but that’s optional. Leave the mixture of banana, oats, vanilla and cinnamon undisturbed for about 4-5 minutes and only then stir in the chocolate chips or cranberries. Once mixed well prepare balls and let it bake for around 15-20 minutes and let your day start with a boost of healthy yet yummy cookies. Each cookie contains 50 calories.

Peanut butter oat cookies

This cookie would be crispy from outside while the peanut butter keeps it soft and sticky in the middle. The presence of flax eggs makes this one of the healthiest cookie choices as it’s rich in omega 3. Note that one cookie contain about 80 calories. Using your hands give the dough a cookie type shape. Continue to bake it until the top turns golden brown in a pre heated oven of about 350F. Avoid over baking as the center tends to get hard. Get the full recipe below.

 

Sugar Cookie Energy Bites

Relax, these aren’t sugary balls of death you fear. To prep them all you require are few cashews, dates, vanilla extract, a hint of salt flakes and about 15 minutes of your time. Dump them all into the processor one by one starting with the nuts, followed by the dates and once it all gels well together, using your hands shape them into mini balls.  Top it off with some  sprinklers to give it catchy look. Each cookie contains around 25 calories only.

Chocolate chip cookies with a healthy twist

This is one recipe that any day takes me back to my childhood but thank god this here comes with a healthy twist which is due to the use of oats and flax eggs rich in omega 3.  Each cookie contains about 150 calories. The recipe is very similar to the regular cookies except here you’ll add in oats and flax egg rather than the regular ones and for sweetening use only organic sugar and no I haven’t forgotten the butter, we’re leaving it out.
