Guilty Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am leaving tomorrow for Los Angeles. I’m gone for 5 days and so I feel a little guilty leaving my sweet family behind.

But, I made cookies so they won’t miss me too much! I am a bit of a health nut, so I make these chocolate chip cookies from the Jessica Seinfeld’s book Deceptively Delicious. Shhh, don’t tell. I sneak a banana in there too, and I add veggies like pureed carrots and pumpkin when nobody is looking. And she always uses egg whites, but me, I throw in the whole omega-3 eggs like there is no tomorrow. But the real trick is chickpeas. It is really weird because you can actually SEE the chickpeas in the cookies, and my kids still eat them without hesitation. Shocking, but great!

Here they are. I like this book. I recommend it: Deceptively Delicious.

Wish me luck on my trip. I’m excited. I’m a butterfly – I just love to go places!
