My #1 weakness is homemade gooey chocolate chip cookies. For years I have been trying to make a healthy substitute for them. I’ve made many I like but none like the one I found while pinning. It was on a blog site called Texanerin. You really should check it out. I did tweak it a little to make it a better texture and sweeter taste which also made the glycemic level lower. Instead of honey I used coconut sugar which is a great substitute for brown sugar. Also it uses garbanzo beans. I found out garbanzo flour has more protein and fiber, and less carbs. and calories than other gluten-free flours. Because of all the nutrients in garbanzo flour, I have been experimenting on other recipes that I will be posting after perfecting them.
