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!
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
They are totally vegan, gluten-free, and allergy-friendly of course and full of clean real ingredients: quinoa flakes, pumpkin, unsweetened cocoa powder, and of course cinnamon.
9. Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Cookie Recipe
Baking helps Vinma to relax and lift up her spirits like no other. Well, when she offers us such a great healthy cookie recipe, we wish that she relaxes all the time!
These cookies are quick and easy, plus they’re pretty healthy, especially if you leave out or substitute the chocolate chips.

I’ve never put healthy and cookies in the same sentence before but my kids are huge cookie junkies so will be checking these out.
Awesome recipes! I love the pumpkin ones, I am going to make them first. Thanks for the new recipes!!! Yes
Wow. Those chocolate-chip dipped cookie dough cookies look amazing! I am so going to writing these down so I can bake them for myself! LOL! My little one is only 7.5 months so mama will surely have more to myself! Thanks for all the ideas!
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 🙂
those strawberry jam cookies look so yummy! i want some of those now. lol it’s good these cookies pass the kids test.
I love cookies big time unfortunately never really have the time to bake them, thanks for this round up I will bookmark for future use once I am settled.
Those chocolate chip cookie dough cookies look amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever made a “healthy” cookie before 🙂
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.
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 🙂
This looks fantastic! I love anything healthy and something the kids would eat as well is a double win win for me! Thanks for sharing your recipes 🙂 I will def. try them out soon!
Wow this is a great round up! We love cookies and I know my kiddos would probably like every one of these!
You definitely have great collection of healthy cookie recipes here. Thanks for sharing them, I will try the pistachio cookies.
Oh my goodness, I am personally pinning this for sure. What a great collection! Thanks for linking up at MeetUp Monday – Hope to see you there again this week!
since we love peanut butter at my house and cranberries are from heaven, we will be trying all recipes with those ingredients. Thanks!
My little guy and I love oatmeal cookies. I’ve been wondering what I can do with these chickpeas I bought. Now, I have a great use for them!
All your cookies look delicious! I think it’s a great tradition! It’s good to start traditions of our own.
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)
My daughter would love these recipes, she loves making cookies and sharing them with family and friends.
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.
I can never resist cookie recipes, particularly because my daughter loves them. But healthy cookie recipes…oh my! That’s A++++ in my book! Thanks for sharing!
Never mind the kids these look delicious! Thanks for sharing on Monday Madness link party 🙂
Those Strawberry Jam cookies are to die!!! I need those right now! 🙂
That first one sounds so interesting! I’d love to try it!
Thank you for sharing these! My daughter keeps asking for cookies and I’ll feel pretty good about giving her a few of these.
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!
These cookies are so easy to make, I love them 🙂
I am glad you like them. I love pistachio so that one is definitely my favorite 🙂
hahah, I know what you mean.. my daughter loves them a lot, but mostly I eat them all 😀 Damn those tasty cookies!
I love chickpeas – if you don’t know what to prepare with them, let me know, I have an amazing chipkpeas burger recipe!!
I am like your girls – love savory things, but my husband and daughter would kill for something sweet 🙂
These look amazing!! Far too delicious looking to be healthy?! Yum — I’d want to eat them all myself!! 😉
