The jam is made from fresh strawberries and Kelly got a little creative with the cookie recipe. She combined cashews with coconut flour, and it gives them a buttery flavor (without using any dairy).

2. Chocolate Dipped Cookie-Dough Cookies

Stacey made this cookie dough from white beans. White beans are good at boosting energy and calming the mind. They can help improve your memory and can lower your cholesterol. They are also a great source of protein.

6. Orange Oatmeal Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

Plan to make this dough at least a day ahead. It needs to chill to firm up, to allow the butter and cream cheese to enrobe the flour, and to give yourself a break from kitchen marathons.

  6. Wow can you send me a batch of those chocolate chips. My mother use to bake things with me and I think its just an awesome part of your childhood. Sounds like she has awesome parents šŸ™‚

  7. I love the idea of healthy-ing up the cookies. I’ve heard of carrots in there, but not really chick peas. I’d do it though, definitely.

  8. This is a fabulous round up of cookies. I gave up keeping cookies in the house as they call my name at 8:00 pm…. Not good.

  12. This list is a great idea! I always try to keep cookies out of the house (mostly because I eat them all) but also because my son likes them too but so many health options to pick from I won’t feel so bad about a treat now and again. (found you on Marvelous Mondays)

  13. These are some awesome cookies for kids indeed. The pistachio cookies and the chewy peanut butter cookies look amazing and I will be making them with my niece’s kids for sure. Thanks so much for sharing.

  14. Same here. She wants to eat cookies all the time! With these at least I know what is in them, so I prefer them more than store bought!

  15. hahah, I know what you mean.. my daughter loves them a lot, but mostly I eat them all šŸ˜€ Damn those tasty cookies!

  16. I love chickpeas – if you don’t know what to prepare with them, let me know, I have an amazing chipkpeas burger recipe!!

  17. I am like your girls – love savory things, but my husband and daughter would kill for something sweet šŸ™‚
