Double Chocolate Brownies

Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

My granny always had so much leftover zucchini in her garden, it was a challenge to use it all. I invented this recipe when she gifted me a huge bag of zucchini one summer fresh from her garden. Zucchini is very high in water and fiber content. It’s the perfect way to moisten brownies without adding extra fat and get extra fiber in your diet.

Mini Cashew Cookies

Nut butters are great for making baked goods and sauces. I love the sweet mellow taste of cashews, but if cashew butter is not in your budget, replace it with peanut butter instead.

 

Gingerbread Cookies

Sesame seeds add a delicate crunch to these spicy treats. I like it when the cookies soften up as they are stored, but my husband is a crisp cookie fan, so I reheat them for a few minutes in a warm oven before serving the second day.

Irish Drop Cookies

I call these cookies “Irish” because their green hue makes them perfect for St. Patty’s Day. Instead of using food coloring, I mix in anti-oxidant green tea powder that helps make these low-sugar cookies even healthier!

Chocolate Toffee Grahams

These are a fast and simple treat, adapted from a recipe my granny used to make. Fun and fast, it’s the ideal recipe to make for an impromptu party or an easy, rewarding project to do with kids.

Rugelach

This classic cookie makes a festive Hanukkah treat or a sweet gift. It’s more than just a cookie, it has an extra dose of antioxidants from the prunes and chocolate. The wheat germ adds fiber to the flaky topping.

Peppermint Biscotti

These festive cookies are so sweet but low in fat. Crunchy cookies with a hard candy coating make the perfect treat for kids with a mean sweet tooth or even prancing reindeer!

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookies

Purchase a pumpkin shape cookie cutter to make these fanciful whole wheat trick or treats for Halloween. The molasses adds vital iron and other minerals to these whole grain goodies that have an extra helping of fiber.

Coco Bats

You will need a bat shaped cookie cutter to makes these crunchy crisp chocolate bats are perfect for a healthy Halloween! The kids will love ’em because they’re chocolate sugar cookie dough, but I like them since they have whole wheat flour and are lower in fat than a traditional sugar cookie.

Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

These treats made with whole grain flour have a nutty, rich taste that people expect from a home-baked cookie. It’s fun to incorporate healthy whole grain flour into your favorite traditional recipes. I added dried cherries for a twist, but these cookies are just as good as a classic chocolate chip
