Chocolate Chip Cookies – Guilt Free & Kid approved

Who doesn’t LOVE Chocolate Chip Cookies?  I do.

The only thing I don’t particularly love is the fact that my Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe starts with 4 sticks of butter.  Don’t get me wrong, the ultimate chocolate chip cookie is hands down my FAVORITE cookie creation I have ever made.  I just wanted something “healthier”.  Now if you read my blog, you know about my disasters that have happened when cutting the butter in a baking recipe, but this one works.  I promise.  I tested it this weekend on 8 adults & 14 kids.  All thumbs up!

Guilt Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Stack

 It’s absolutely DELICIOUS and KID-approved.  This recipe has NO-Butter… so what is the substitute then?

Coconut Oil!!!  With 100’s of benefits from coconut oil, you can indulge without guilt and feel good about giving these cookies to your kids.
