With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’ve got chocolate on the brain. These cookies should do the trick. They’re made with 100% whole food ingredients– no flour, no oil, and no added sugar! But don’t let these healthy ingredients throw you off. These cookies still have a rich and fudgy flavor and texture, almost like a brownie in cookie-form.

I based these cookies off the recipe for my Healthiest Cookies Ever, which remind me of my childhood favorite “soft batch” cookies, and since they’ve been such a hit with everyone who tries them, I figured a chocolate variation was in order. For this version, I added a hefty dose of cocoa powder, and used pecans instead of walnuts for a more mild flavor. (The walnuts really overwhelmed the cookie, so I couldn’t taste the chocolate flavor as much– keep this in mind if you plan on making substitutions!) Adding dark chocolate chips to these cookies does add a bit of added sugar to the equation, but I think the result is totally worth it.

The word “detox” tends to bring to mind scary-intense juice cleanses or a gluten- dairy-meat-grain-sugar-caffeine-free diet that will make you run away screaming (and hungry).

But never fear—when we say “detox,” we’re talking about refocusing the mind, body, and palate on healthy, tasty, and nutritious foods. Instead of going crazy-restrictive and nixing all food groups except kale and steamed fish (not exactly a sustainable diet), let’s explore new tastes, textures, ingredients, and cooking techniques. Most of these recipes are based on healthy staples like whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, and both vegetarian and meat protein sources.

7 Classic Breakfasts Turned Into Smoothies | Prevention. The Realistic Organizer: {Organized} Slow Cooker-Freezer Meals. Happy Friday! This week I'm doing things a little different.

One type of gluten-free flour alone cannot replace the all-purpose white or whole wheat flour used in regular baking. The rule of thumb is a 2:1 ratio of flour to starch.
