Trick Yourself With Chocolate Chip Cookies
I can’t help myself. I really enjoy well made sweets and cookies.
The sneaky chef promotes tricking your kids and husband by hiding healthy stuff in their favorite food.
Why only trick them? I’m perfectly happy to trick myself with the foods I like. Here is a recipe with healthy chocolate chip cookies with white beans. Not only does the recipe cut down on fat and flour it adds one if the best foods: beans.
Beans in cookies?
Yeah, I promise you won’t know the difference.
I make mini versions of these cookies, inspired by one of The sneaky chef’s recipes, stuff them in the freezer and take the out one at the time. Prefect treat for me or for the kids lunch boxes.
