Healthy (and still delicious) Chocolate Chip Cookies

As I’ve mentioned before, I am usually hesitant about making “healthy” desserts because if I’m going to have dessert, I want it to be delicious. But I decided to try these because they involve peanut butter and maple syrup, two things I love. And while¬†you can tell these are not the usual cookies, they are still so great, especially if you’re trying to cut back on the super indulgent desserts after all the candy and chocolate you likely ate for Valentine’s Day!

Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies Dipped in White Chocolate

I love oatmeal raisin cookies, but sometimes it’s fun to change them up slightly. These are delicious with the sour cranberries, pecans, and the extra white chocolate. Plus with the red and white they’d be perfect to make for friends or family for Valentine’s Day!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich with Nutella Frosting

If you’re like me, you can eat Nutella by the spoonful straight from the jar. But sometimes, it’s fun to eat it in a slightly more socially acceptable form. So turn it into a frosting and then put a large dollop between two chocolate chip cookies. I made these and piled them up to create an unconventional “birthday cake.” But these would also be great for any upcoming holiday parties you have.

Lemon Lime Skillet Cookie

Feel like zesting up your life? This dessert is full of lemon and lime zest. And the best part about this dish is that you could eat it right out of the skillet if you were just cooking it for yourself or your family. I chose to take the dish to a dinner party, which made cutting it up and removing it from the skillet slightly difficult, but it is totally worth it.

Watermelon Cookies

Before you get too excited, I did not figure out how to make a cookie taste like watermelon. Although, I promise that if I do, I will be sure to share the love. In the meantime, here is a great tasting cookie that looks just like a watermelon. Heads up, this recipe involves leaving the dough in the fridge for 2 hours, and then another 6-8 hours.

Patriotic Pinwheel Cookies

I definitely get into the 4th of July spirit. I try to work red, white, and blue into my wardrobe, my apartment, and my food. Normally, I do the classic flag cake (made with strawberries and blueberries), but this year I decided to change it up with these cookies. They involve a few steps (aka you should make them the night before), but they look so cool that they are definitely worth the effort!
