Good morning! Yesterday I took another rest day… ugh I know, slippery slope! However, I got right back into working out this morning and I did the 21 Day Fix Total Body Cardio. I don’t know if this has happened to anybody else, but I think I really strained my lower back doing that video! Oh well, I strained my glutes when I started T25, so maybe it’s just going to happen occasionally when I’m really trying to train hard. I think some yoga will be on the agenda tomorrow for sure!
As I am trying to keep my blog as open and honest as possible, I have a confession to make:
I ate several chocolate chip cookies yesterday. And they were DELICIOUS! Yesterday I got a craving for something sweet, so I decided to whip up something that would satisfy my sweet tooth without making me feel icky afterwards. Plus, I had everything in my kitchen that I needed for this recipe. It doesn’t even call for eggs!
At about 70 calories a cookie, you can’t beat that with a stick. There were 10 cookies here… hmm…
Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 4 tbsp milk (any kind)
Preheat oven to 375. Mix first 6 ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Put in remaining ingredients and mix again. Drop cookies onto greased cookie sheet using a tablespoon, and bake for 6-7 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom. They will be slightly underdone when you pull them from the oven. Let cool on the baking sheet for about 3 minutes, and move to a cooling rack. Mine made 10 cookies.
Can you believe they’re only 70 calories each?! And believe me, they do not taste healthy at all. Have a healthy happy day y’all! 🙂
