Chocolate Chip Cookies

The "healthy" Chocolate Chip Cookies from our video yesterday were a hit in our house...and thanks for all of the Ivy love! They are definitely less sweet than a typical cookie, but there was still lots of dark chocolate chip goodness to enjoy! I used spelt flour to make them nut free and school friendly (coconut flour would have worked too), but using the almond flour would be better to increase their protein content and make them even more blood sugar friendly. We forgot to push them down, so that's why they are a bit puffy...I kind of like that though. They will definitely be added to one of my upcoming meal plans for my online "Your Best Life" program.

Speaking of which, there are still some spots left for the group that is starting next Monday, May 1. If you are thinking of joining, then do it! You won't regret it, and I promise you will learn a lot about good nutrition, time effective exercise for fat burning, as well as tips for stress management, better sleep, improved digestion, as well as time management that can help you achieve your goals. Plus you will get 5 weeks worth of easy, healthy, family friendly meal plans. These are all of the things that I see from over 13 years of Naturopathic practice as being so essential to helping women look and feel their best.
