I really like chocolate chips cookies…all gooey and fresh from the oven.  As is often the case in my kitchen, I take a recipe and try to make it healthier.  Now I am fully aware that many people have come up with excellent recipes for cookies that will be, ‘healthier,’ than the one I am about to share with you, BUT, this is my celebratory blog post and I get to share what I will.  I also want you to like my post and not get frightened off by something that sounds too strange and bizarre to be a cookie, so here goes…

Sometimes I will roll out balls of cookie dough and freeze them – that way, I have a quick and easy treat to pull out of the freezer and bake up later.
