I’m not going to lie. This is not a healthy recipe. I’m not going to pretend to be some magical food wizard who has managed to create a delicious, fudgy, chocolate chip pan cookie recipe that’s super healthy and you can eat all day. I wish! I think I’d be a billionaire if I could manage that one….
Instead, I’ve created this recipe. It is oil and refined sugar free. It is also made with wholemeal flour and almond meal. So as far as decedent desserts, this one is pretty healthy.
This recipe is heavenly served hot from the oven with a scoop of ice cream, and should fulfill any dessert cravings.
Gluten Free: I have made this recipe with gluten free flour in place of the wholemeal flour and it tasted great.
Nut Free: You can replace the almond meal with extra plain flour. The end result is not as fudgy, but it still tastes great!
I have made this recipe nut free, gluten free and soy free by using a gluten free flour mix in place of the wholemeal flour and almond meal, and coconut milk for the dairy free milk. Again, it was missing the fudgy texture from the almond meal, but it was the first thing to go at the party I took it to, so I call that a success!
