I LOVE baking. I do it often and bring what I bake to gatherings with friends so I don’t eat it all or force my boyfriend to! Over the years, I’ve developed a reputation for my excellent chocolate chip cookies. I decided to explore a healthier and all-around more amazing version of my recipe for this post. Coconut is God’s greatest gift to this earth, so that was the first thing I decided to add. The combination of coconut and chocolate just can’t be beat. After coconut, almond seemed like an obvious choice. I also included chia seeds to add just a little more nutritional value to these delicious treats!
