My brother and his family were here for the Holidays and my sister-in-law is notorious for always introducing us to something new….and usually a-mazing!

This year it was these! Amazing is an understatement. Buttery. Flaky. Creamy.

They are so easy to make.  Simply spreading Nutella on each uncooked crescent roll triangle. Rolling it up and then baking.  So simple.   And everyone who tries one will think you slaved in the kitchen.

We had them for dessert after dinner actually.  I will say having them warm with a glass of milk is the absolute best eva!

These Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies are the most asked for cookie in our house! Thay are made with NO sugar, NO flour, NO eggs and NO butter. Just the BEST chocolatey goodness with every bite.

How can something with so many healthy swaps taste so darn good?  These Chocolate Chip cookies are honestly one of the best cookies I have ever eaten!  Really!

Tchocolate chip cookies on a glass plate

My sister-in-law introduced us to them over Christmas a few years ago.   Now they are the absolute favorite cookie!  How do you judge the best cookie ever?  By just how fast they disappear off the plate when it’s placed on the table.

The natural ingredients are what make these cookies healthier.  Almond meal flour or oat flour in place of white flour.  maple syrup in place of refined sugar and coconut oil in place of butter.  Plus we can’t forget the almond butter that makes them the perfect crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.

Pro tip: If you use coconut oil be sure to just melt it not “heat” it too much.  If it does get hot, let it cool a little before mixing other ingredients in.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients

1/2 cup of creamy all-natural Almond butter

3/4 cup of maple syrup

1 tsp of molasses

1 1/2 TBSP of vanilla

1/4 cup of Coconut oil or Canola oil

2 Cups of Almond Meal Flour or oat flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill brand)

1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon

2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1/2 tsp of sea salt

1/2 cup of chocolate chips (my favorite is Ghirardelli)

How to Make Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper

Mix the almond meal flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.

Mix the almond butter, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and molasses in a separate bowl.

Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Be careful not to over mix.

Scoop a TBSP of dough onto the parchment paper.

Bake for 11 – 13 minutes.

Let the cool on the cookie sheet for a minute or so and then transfer to a cooling rack……Or put them on a plate and dare yourself NOT to eat them all!

Just mix the spinach, cream cheese, parmesan, garlic, and chives together. Slice the chicken down the side, like you are butterflying it.  Put 1/4 of the mixture in each piece of chicken.  Finish with wrapping each breast in bacon, which is the best part!

Also, you must know it is very easy to prepare but looks like you slaved over a fancy looking dish.  I got several “ooh’s and ahh’s”.   Think of making this the next time you are having dinner guests. 🙂

These easy Tuna Patties are a delicious way to make a healthy meal out of canned tuna. They are a perfectly seasoned high protein lunch or dinner meal idea.

This is one of those recipes that can quickly become an obsession.   To make them even more enticing, they are budget-friendly and kid-friendly too!   That comes directly from my daughter who despises the smell of the can of tuna I open when making my favorite Avocado Tuna Salad.

This tuna patties recipe is can be made with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.  If you don’t have breadcrumbs, you can also use crushed Ritz crackers like my mother did.   You can also use egg whites instead of the whole egg to reduce fat calories even more.

The spices used in this tuna cakes recipe are what make these tuna patties extra flavorful. They are a wonderful low carb meal that fits into many diets such as keto, paleo, and pescatarian.

They are so versatile too! You can eat them alongside a vegetable like roasted broccoli or serve them on top of a salad. They are also great as a sandwich with this cucumber dill sauce!

How to Make Tuna Patties

Drain the tuna.

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl.

Form into 4 equal patties. (roll into balls first then press into patties)

In a non-stick pan, add the oil and saute the patties over medium heat.

Pro tips:

Substitute gluten-free breadcrumbs if desired

You can also use fresh bread diced into small cubes if you don’t have breadcrumbs. My mother used to even make them with crushed ritz crackers.

Make these Healthy Stuffed Mushrooms for your next party or get together.  They are packed with spinach and feta with a little balsamic for scrumptious flavors!

There is something about delicious stuffed mushrooms at any get together that has me hovering over them.

I have mentioned before my love of anything mushroom, garlic, onion, and spinach.  My favorite egg white scramble, or this Spinach Mushroom quinoa and Chicken Spinach Mushroom Spaghetti Squash all have those fabulous flavors.

So, why not stuff a mushroom cap with them and serve them as a great appetizer, right?  Minus the bread crumbs and butter to make them extra healthy and easily gluten-free.

They are probably one of the easiest appetizers to make too.  Just sauté the onions, garlic, and mushrooms.  Add the spinach and a little balsamic vinegar and then a tad of feta cheese to complete those wonderful flavors.

How to Make Healthy Stuffed Mushrooms

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place mushrooms on a baking sheet.

Cut up 2 of the mushrooms into diced pieces. (or remove stems from mushrooms and cut into small diced pieces.

In a medium skillet add oil, onion, garlic, diced mushrooms and saute until tender, about 8-10 minutes.
