The ULTIMATE roundup of Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes for all you cookie monsters out there. The perfect resource when you’re craving the classic all-American treat made with more wholesome ingredients!
Some foods are seasonal. Some food trends come and go with the changing times. Some foods are just fads that everyone gets excited over for a moment and then dumps the next day for something bolder…more exciting…more inventive!
But then, there are those classic staples of culture. The tried and true foods that are always appealing, always appropriate for the occasion, and ALWAYS delicious.
Some that come to mind for me are…
All of them sort of fall in the ‘comfort food’ category…which makes sense since the food can definitely be a comfort to people in many ways. It can add to wonderful experiences and help in creating lasting memories with family and friends!
One food that I always think of when it comes to recipes that have stood the test of time is….CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. Specifically, my grandma’s (with added walnuts, of course!). But really ANY chocolate chip cookies are usually good!
They’re the kind of food, or in this case DESSERT, that most families have their go-to recipe for. Ya know, the kind of recipe that’s been passed down from generation to generation? Everyone sort of knows it by heart and the cookies always turn out perfect (to your specific standards!). My family has that and whenever someone makes them we all delight in how tasty they are.
Not only do they taste good though, they evoke warm memories of childhood days, times together at holidays, and the simple pleasure of munching on something sweet and satisfying. It’s sort of weird but I love my grandma’s best when they have been in the freezer for a bit! The cookies get extra crunchy, the cold chocolate hits my taste buds like a firework, and all the flavors seem to be more pronounced! Anybody else drooling right now? *raises hand*
