When I was pregnant with my first baby, I gained 65 pounds. I have always been a huge sweets fan and it was only worse when I was pregnant! My poor, pregnant body knows all too well the effects a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey can have on it.
This pregnancy I decided to try and eat only one or two treats a day (I can’t live a day with out dessert. Trust me, I have tried and I am miserable!) rather than a whole batch. I decided I better try this healthy cookie recipe to lighten my load a little bit. They only have 56 calories a cookie! They don’t have any eggs or flour in them and are so easy to make. If you taste the batter and decide it isn’t sweet enough, a little bit more honey and a little bit of semi-sweet chocolate chips will do the trick (don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone).
Keep in mind that these cookies are from a healthy recipe with natural sweeteners . . . if you are looking for a different kind of chocolate peanut butter cookie, be sure to check out our favorite ones here.
