You mean, everyday? 😉 Since I’ve developed a number of healthy cookie recipes, everyday can be a cookie day! Woot.

For chocolate chip cookies, I have so many healthified versions, and today I’m sharing my gluten- and grain- free one that is only ~50 kcal for a pretty decent sized cookie. They are also lower in carbs, higher in protein, and sugar-free.Despite all that, you can’t tell these are grain-free, made with flax seed and protein powder, and have no added butter/fat.

The cookies are so soft and chewy with a slight banana 🍌 taste. My little gerbils (aka human taste-testers haha) loved them!

So bring out that inner cookie monster of yours because you’ll definitely be eating more than one of these healthy yet delicious cookies! 🙂
