5 Recipes for Smart Cookies
Fudgy Brownie Sandwich Cookies
These irresistibly rich cookies have a secret ingredient: black beans. We promise the kids won't suspect a thing.
(Secretly Healthy) Black Bean Sandwich Cookies
Kids (and grown-ups) will go gaga for these moist, flavorful treats. Bonus: Almond flour has double the protein and triple the fiber of white, all-purpose flour. You can buy it in many grocery stores, or make your own by grinding blanched almonds to a fine powder in a food processor.
Peanut-Butter Chocolate-Chunk Cookies
Spelt flour is a nutty-tasting whole-grain flour. If you can't find it, sub whole-wheat pastry flour.
Jammy Oat-Crumble Bars
These homey bars are perfect for afterschool or even an on-the-go breakfast. Make oat flour by grinding oats in your blender. Or look for it at the grocery store, from brands like Bob's Red Mill.
How can you make macaroons even better? Chocolate drizzle. Make sure to use unsweetened coconut for these simple, gluten-free cookies.
