Looking for a quick and healthy chocolate cookie recipe? You've come to the right place. After decades of research, I've finally found the recipe of my dreams. These cookies take 10 minutes to make, they taste phenomenal and they contain 2 superfood ingredients that are great for releasing stress, balancing hormones, and improving mental clarity. All of that in a little cookie— magic huh?!
But first, I have a confession to make.
My life's a bit of a contradiction. I'm a healthy lifestyle coach who promotes home-cooked meals, but trust me, I'm no Martha Stewart. I'm a woman on-the-go! I rarely have much time to spend in the kitchen, so I have to strategize so I can get my cooking done in little to no time. After years and years, I've finally got it down to a Rolodex of recipes that are ACTUALLY simple, ACTUALLY delicious, TRULY healthy, and FOOLPROOF.
My second confession? I'm so tired of dancing around the subject of what I like to call moving into a new season in life (AKA menopause). It's totally changed my hormones and required me to incorporate new recipes and routines. As I move through this time in my life, these cookies have been life savers!
