Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Like most people, I am a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies. Better yet, a fan of almost all types of cookies in general! There are so many possibilities when it comes to cookies and I really love trying all sorts! However, at the end of the day, I seem to always crave chocolate chip. This recipe is different than my other more classic chocolate chip cookie which you can find here. This version is something you will love to use an reuse when you want something slightly different than the classic chocolate chip cookie.

What’s the difference? I use a different type of flour and coconut sugar instead of regular sugar. What I noticed about baking cookies with coconut sugar is the fact that I can eat more cookies with coconut sugar than with regular! With regular sugar, after a few cookies I will feel like I ate too much. I don’t feel that way when I eat dessert with coconut sugar.

Why Spelt flour? Spelt flour is known to be a little higher in protein and certain vitamins such as B1, B3, B6, Vitamin E, magnesium, iron, manganese, calcium, zinc, selenium, and phosphorus. According to webmd, it is also known to reduce blood sugar spikes, reduce inflammation, and help with the good bacteria that lives in your gut microbiome.

So as a healthier alternative to the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe, I have created this recipe to give you options. They pair really well with tea or coffee and my little babe loves it too.

What I also love about my recipe is that you do not need to chill it, so you save some time with that. (Who doesn’t need extra time nowadays?!) I would love to hear your experiences with spelt flour and please do comment below if you make this recipe. I hope you enjoy it, let’s start baking!

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Rips and I am thrilled to share my passion with you! I am just a girl who loves to bake and cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do and is rewarding in so many ways! It teaches me to be present and helps me relieve stress. I grew up watching both my parents cook the most delicious food you could possibly imagine! Cooking healthy food for each other was something we did for the ones we cared about. Shortly after, I picked up on that habit. I come from a Mediterranean background and I bring that to a lot of my recipes with lots of modern adaptations. I have been baking and cooking for over 15 years and truly find the most joy in it! I also recently wrote and self published my first recipe book called Ripsy's Recipe's on Amazon (I will link below). Ripsy's Recipes has some amazing healthy recipes with gluten free and vegan options that everyone can enjoy. I really wanted to create an easy to follow, non intimidating healthy recipe book for you to love. It truly is my go-to for quick, healthy, easy, delicious meals! The best part of making food is I get to eat it and feed my loved ones. I am very mindful of the ingredients I use in my recipes; at the same time; I still like to indulge in dessert! My dessert recipes are lower in sugar than in any recipe or store bought dessert you will ever find (and they taste amazing). As a result, my family and I get to enjoy it without the guilt. My greatest joy comes from sharing what I make with the people I care about most, and now, you will have access to that too. I hope you try my recipes and love them as much as my family and I do! Namaste Friends!
