Sometimes you want something sweet and chocolatey but you still want it to be healthy!!  I found this recipe in my Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook by Tosca Reno and I just love them.  However, I am a chocolate FREAK so I added some bittersweet chocolate chips (to keep them low sugar still) I made them to take on vacation with me so I could have some healthy cookies to share and enjoy.

It's great to have a delicious yet so healthy cookie you can eat it for Breakfast ... these cookies are perfect for that and great with coffee or hot tea!
  • ½ Cup Brown Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Coconut Oil*
  • 3 Egg Whites
  • ¼ Cup Dried Figs (I used Raisens)
  • ¼ Cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Cup all purpose flour
  • ½ Cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ Bran Flakes
  • 2 TBSP Flax Meal
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ¼ Cup slivered almonds
  • 1 Cup Bittersweet Chocolate Chips (I used Ghiradelli)
  • *Note: One of the changes I made was the Coconut Oil in this recipe ... it is healthier and the ingredient she called for I did not have on hand ... you could also use Canola oil. The Coconut Oil makes a difference in the flavor but I like it :) I'm sure you will too.
