How to event a cookie

At Christmas I baked 14 different kinds of cookies - and they all start out basically the same. Butter or shortening, add sugar, add flour, baking soda or powder, salt and then all the extras that makes that cookie special.

Now I need to lose weight, I love the Daniel Plan and have learned the joy of chia seed, flax seed and coconut oil. So, I thought, why not make a healthy cookie. So off I went to the kitchen. For sugar, I replaced it with a banana and applesauce, the flour I replaced with dry oatmeal. Eggs got replaced with chia seeds and I added cranraisens and 86% Cacao chocolate for flavor. How did it turn out you might ask? Pretty darn good.

The final product - tasty and so simple to make
