Over the years of owning this food website, I have created lots of cookie recipes! I have done a lot of experimenting with trying to make cookies healthier for my family. I have attempted to substituting sugar with fruit or maple syrup. I have attempted to subbing flour with sweet potatoes or oats. I have tried subbing butter with bananas — anything to get more goodness into the mouths of my kids.
Anyway, this time of year, all of my healthy cookie recipes tend to be popular. If you are looking for a healthier cookie to make after a trip to the apple orchard, or the pumpkin patch, a better for you dessert to bring to Thanksgiving dinner or a Christmas party check out these healthier for you cookies that your kids will love!
A few items that make baking cookies so much easier :
- A cookie scoop
- A silicone baking mat or parchment paper
- food processor
- A jar of high-quality pure vanilla
