10 Healthy Cookie Recipes Your Kids Will Love


My daughter loves to eat cookies. Well, to be honest, her mother loves them too. We didn’t have a tradition to bake them ourselves, but I decided to change that. That is why I collected the list of awesome healthy cookie recipes your kids will love.
We are going to bake them all! Yum!

10 Healthy Cookie Recipes Your Kids Will Love

Healthy Cookie Recipes

1. Paleo Strawberry Jam Cookies

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.

3. Healthy Cookies with Chikpeas, oatmeal and Chocolate Chips

Would you ever think of putting chickpeas in cookies? Nope, neither would Vicki until she started investigating healthy cookies and how to make them so they are still delicious cookies. And she made it!

4. Perfectly Soft & Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies are an excellent balance of salty and sweet, soft and chewy. They are hard to stop eating, so be careful!

5. Dark Chocolate Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of the most versatile cookies around, chocolate chips can easily be changed up depending on what you have on hand. The key is to start with a good base recipe and to use quality ingredients.

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.

Krista says that this is the BEST pistachio cookie recipe EVER. We will trust her and bake these asap!

8. Soft Spiced Cocoa Pumpkin Cookies

9. Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Cookie Recipe

  • Reply Rosey April 19, 2015 at 10:10 pm

    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.

  • Reply BritishMumUSA April 19, 2015 at 11:33 pm

    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. My girls have never been ones for sweet things, they like savory Like Salt and vinegar things or crunchy things…… Will try one or two of these as they look delicious and healthy šŸ™‚


    • Reply Marina April 27, 2015 at 11:30 am

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

    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)

    • Reply Marina April 27, 2015 at 11:28 am
