Guess what?! It's cookie week over here in the Bright Moment Kitchen and we couldn't be more happy! I mean, come on, who doesn't look a good cookie? Especially when you can make them healthier and still taste just as scrumptious... if not even more delicious! We are starting the week off with the most festive, holiday-inspired cookie we could think of... Pecan & Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies (NO Butter).
Wanna know a secret? You would've never known that they were made without butter unless you are the one baking them! They are super soft and will just melt in your mouth with every bite. I had a whole tray of these cookies out for the week of Thanksgiving and everyone in my household ate them up within only hours of baking!
Since we are working with extra virgin olive oil, which adds a beautiful richness to the cookie, the cookie dough becomes a little LESS complicated to work with. No need to waste time chilling the dough, because this cookie dough batch is ready to bake immediately after every ingredient has been well incorporated together.
There is 1/4 cup ground flaxseed in the cookies that adds to the nuttiness of the cookie, as well as benefits your body! Flaxseeds are an excellent source of healthy fat, full of antioxidants and fiber, omega-3, and is rich in protein, as well!
It is time to grab our aprons and begin baking deliciousness!
