Warm cookies are one of my greatest weaknesses. I am trying to watch what I eat and live a healthy lifestyle (check out my YouTube channel for my fitness routine!) so I attempt to minimize the sweets I eat. It’s tough, y’all. Here is a great way to enjoy warm gooey cookies without worrying about the guilt. They’re dairy free and gluten free, but our taste buds won’t know the difference!

Ingredients:

  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a baking pan. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until the batter is smooth. The batter will be thick like cookie dough. Scoop a spoonful out and roll it into a small ball. Take a fork and do the traditional crisscross pattern on the top, flattening the cookie. Bake them for 13-15 minutes or until they are slightly golden brown. Let them cool for about 10 minutes, then devour!

XOXO, Chels

We all get the munchies, when we just need something sweet to sink our teeth into! I have been trying my best to eat healthy, as I am sure a lot of us are. Lucky for us I found a delish recipe for healthy cookies that you can feel good about eating! And with only 3 ingredients they are so easy to make!

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • Handfull of rasins (or chocolate chips)

Mash 2 ripe bananas in a bowl. Then mix in the oats and rasins or chocolate chips. Line a baking sheet with foil and place small balls of the batter on the sheet. Bake the cookies for 15 minute or so at 350 degrees.  These are so easy to make and you probably have these ingredients on hand!

If you want you can add a little bit of cinnamon or vanilla to sweeten them up before you bake them go for it! These are easy and fun to modify.

Nutella and peanut butter: the world’s best combination now in cookie form! When I heard about these cookies I knew I had to try them for myself. Thank goodness I did! They are delicious and all my friends looooove them. Here is how to make these chocolatey bits of joy.

My Top 3 Types of Christmas Cookies!

What’s a better way to celebrate the holiday season than with good food…..COOKIES that is!  My family loves spending time in the kitchen together baking all types of Christmas cookies. However, our top three choices are sugar cookies, peanut butter blossoms, and snicker doodles.

Sugar cookies are made with a super sweet, delicious dough. You can use a multitude of different cookies to make fun shapes!  Roll out the dough and make whatever shapes you have (stockings, angels, snowflakes, etc.). After baking, decorate the cookies using colored icing, sprinkles, and red hots!  Of course, my family tries to see whose iced cookie looks the best. A little friendly decorating competition is always fun!

Peanut butter blossoms are made with a dough that has a little bit of peanut butter in it. (You can get these recipes off of google anytime!)  Roll the dough into balls then roll them in sugar. After baking for a bit, pull them out of the oven and stick a Hershey’s kiss right in the middle of the cookies. Then, continue baking for a bit longer.  They are delicious and are probably eaten faster than any other cookies in the house!Chelsea Crockett - Snicker Doodles

Last, but not least, are snicker doodles!  These yummy cookies are rolled in cinnamon and sugar and baked to perfection. They have an ingredient called cream of tartar in them that makes the cookie crunchy on the outside but moist on the inside!  They’ll definitely make your mouth water.

What’s your favorite cookie to bake? Let me know below!

Happy Baking! – Chelsea
