Super Healthy Cookie Recipe (that tastes great too!)
Well, I think I've finally done it! After several attempts, I believe I have finally achieved perfection in a cookie. At least by my standards. These guys have quite an impressive nutrition profile and a solid nutrient ratio to boot.
Coming in with an impressive 7 grams of HEALTHY fats, 2 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber, these guys are sure to satisfy! And, they are made with 100% Thai Organic Coconut Blossom Sugar, which is a gift from Mother Nature herself!
Derived from the fresh sweet nutritious sap of coconut blossoms, this sugar has a higher nutritional content than other sweeteners. It contains amino acids, especially glutamic acid, is high in Magnesium, Zinc, Iron and Potassium, and is a natural source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B6. Furthermore, it registers low on the glycemic index, at only 35!

2 Tbsp. Organic Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Organic Thai Coconut Blossom Sugar
