healthy chocolate chip cookies!

No I’m not lying!  I got this recipe out of Double Delicious.  The new Jessica Seinfeld cookbook.  She uses chickpeas, applesauce, and wholewheat floor. (which I have never used before in baking)  They are not quite like regular chocolate chip cookies, they are more moist and muffin like.  But I think they are a great alternative and a healthier option to chocolate chip cookies.  (My husband and his friend loved them so I think they past the test!)

The recipe makes about 20 cookies.  The serving is one cookie- 135 cal, 20g carb, 3g protein, 5g total fat, sodium 135mg, 2.5g fiber.  You could make the cookies smaller so you can trick yourself into thinking you are having more by eating two small cookies then 1 big cookie.  If you do that I would use mini chips so there are more in each cookie.  You can find this recipe and a lot more in Double Delicious.  (Buy it at Target it’s 30% off!)

Healthy whole wheat blueberry muffins

Ingredients

1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup apple sauce
1 cup almond milk
1 egg white

Directions

Mix all dry ingredients set aside
Mix all wet ingredients
make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add wet ingredients mix so dry ingredients are mostly wet, add blueberries
Spilt batter between a 6 cup large muffin pan

Bake 25 min or until a toothpick comes out clean

If you don’t have a large muffin pan just use a small one and cut the calories in half per muffin.

Number of Servings: 6

These muffins are a healthy alternative to regular blueberry muffins I just took a muffin recipe I found in my cookbook and substituted the oil for apple sauce and the milk with almond milk. I also cut out the yolk of the egg and instead of 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup all purpose flour.

Explore…

I go searching for other healthy blogs and all I find are girls putting how they want to lose 10 pounds in a month or look like a Victoria secret model.  They put up pictures, and honestly I hate it.  I think the shows like biggest loser and I used to be fat are NOT realistic at all.  They go to the gym for 6 hours a day… that’s almost a full time job.  Once they don’t have the time to go to the gym for 6 hours a day they will gain weight back.  You have to burn more calories then you eat to lose weight and if you stay eating the same but working out less, well you do the math.  I think people should worry about living a longer and healthier life not worry about the size 2 jeans you fit in.  Yes it is great to have a goal but when you don’t make that goal how do you feel?  I know I don’t feel great, even if I lost 20 pound, if the shirt makes me look fat then I still feel like crap.  If you set your goal to eat more fruits and vegetables and lean meats, you will feel better when you succeed that goal!  So lets try realistic and positive goals and see where that gets us! :-)

haute|mess: the amount of pro-ana tumblrs on here is disgusting. DISGUSTING....

szabolcskt:

the amount of pro-ana tumblrs on here is disgusting. DISGUSTING. seriously, you girls are beautiful, but you’re killing yourselves slowly.

i’m all for getting in shape, but giving tips on how to eat under 500 calories a day and have a goal weight of under 100lbs while being over 5’6” is terrible….

 I totally agree!  It’s pretty disturbing and they need to get help not lose more weight.  And boys don’t like BONES they think it’s gross!  Girls you need something on you to hold, why would anyone want to hold a sack of bones?! GROSS!
