I generally eat a healthful plant-based diet, but when it comes to a special occasion or party, I really look forward to a sweet treat… including lots of chocolate chips!! I am always looking for ways to tweak a recipe to get a little extra nutrition and a little less of the processed junk. This recipe is JUST as delicious (if not better) than your classic “chocolate chip cookie” but with a few healthy swaps and a little extra fiber and protein! Not only is it a boost of nutrients, but it’s a great gluten-free, wheat-free, vegan option for those with any special dietary restrictions. In place of eggs and butter, we use applesauce and almond butter and swap out white flour for gluten-free oats and oat flour! Whip these up and serve for your Fourth of July party!
