You will notice the colorful little chocolate bombs dispersed throughout–those are pockets of clearance Easter candy. I love that class, but I still like to save a little cash when I can. Candy-coated chocolate eggs are 50 percent off, at a store near you…
I wanted to make these slightly healthier than a standard cookie. I started out with the classic Toll House cookie recipe, but with the following changes: I subbed quinoa flour for half of the all-purpose flour, to add protein and fiber. I replaced the brown sugar (usually 3/4 cup) with a half of a cup of coconut sugar. Less refined sugar, which makes perfect sense, since the next step was to dump in three cups of clearance Easter candy. It’s all about balance, folks. I spread the batter in a 9×13 inch baking pan (which makes for a brownie-type thickness) and baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Are they good? I have no idea, but I will report back from the class. Are they healthy? Absolutely not. They will not, however, kill you as fast as other cookies. Also, if you don’t buy all of the clearance Easter candy, who will?
Thanks for reading,
