Healthy  Chocolate  Chip Cookies

These are the absolute BEST Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies that are soft, perfectly chewy, buttery and loaded with dark chocolate chips. I have perfected my healthy-ier recipe over the years and kids called it “classic”!

Ingredients You Need

In a large bowl, add butter and sugar; beat with a mixer  until creamy.


Add egg and vanilla extract, beat until combined. Add baking soda, salt and flour; beat until cookie dough is formed. Add 1/4 cup chocolate chips and stir with spatula.


Place cookie dough in freezer to chill for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 cookie sheets with unbleached parchment paper or silicone baking mats.


Scoop dough with a regular scoop, roll into balls and place on prepared baking sheets 3 inches apart. Cookies spread.


Bake for 10 minutes and remove while cookies appear underbaked. Place remaining 2 tbsp of chocolate chips into cookies while they are still hot.


Let cookies cool on baking sheet 15 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
