There was a girl that used to work with me. Her name was Angie. She was health conscious and tried to make better food decisions for herself as well as her family. Maybe that’s why we became really good friends. 🙂 Well, one day she had brought in these “cookies”. I took one look at them and I knew I wanted one. There were flecks of chocolate, nuts and chia seeds. I had to have the recipe. Luckily for me, she wrote down what she could remember. And the first thing I did when I got home? I made some darn good-for-you cookies.
I’ve made a few variations of these cookies. I would swap out walnuts for almonds, dried cherries for raisins, chocolate for white chocolate. These however, are my favorite. It’s obvious I love anything coconut and chocolate. (here and here … oh, and here), but feel free to add your favorite combos.
These cookies aren’t overly sweet (depends on how much honey/chocolate you use). They could be gluten-free, and holds everything that is good for your body. I kind of feel guilty calling these bad boys cookies, but that just makes it more treat-worthy 😉 Not a fan of cookies (do those people exist?!), then make them into bars. Problem solved. 😉
