Guilt Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Guilt free, gluten free, dairy free, chocolate chip cookies.  Need I say more?

Now, I consider these cookies guilt free, as they’re relatively low sugar (for a cookie).  So, I don’t want you to expect them to be super sweet, as they’re not.  But that’s the beauty of it – no sugar crash post cookie.  In fact, I’ve had a couple for an afternoon snack and have felt great until dinner.

The cookies are full of nutrient dense foods, and actually have a secret ingredient that you would never have expected to be in cookies: tahini. SO, if you’ve made my quinoa salad recipe and have leftover tahini, this is the perfect recipe.  As I’ve mentioned before, tahini is a great source of calcium AND magnesium.

The cookies also contain gluten free oats which contain a type of fiber called beta-glucan. Studies have shown that this helps remove excess, bad cholesterol.  Lastly, the cookies have raw cacao nibs, which are an excellent source of magnesium and give you a nice little energy boost!
