Plus Size Fitness: Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

August 18 2014 | CeCe Olisa

They say that 80% of healthy living is what you eat… of course, that’s the part I struggle with the most.

I have a habit of of depriving myself of “bad foods” and then binge eating later on the very foods that I was trying to avoid (*blush* does anyone else do that?).

I think a more sustainable plan is to cook healthy foods that will support my healthy lifestyle and satisfy my cravings. Last night I made a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Instead of using pre packaged dough or a recipe with white sugar and flour, I made my cookies using almond flour and agave. Two awesome things about this recipe is that its only four steps and the dry ingredients can be found online at lower prices. Recipe and links below!

These cookies expand, so a small teaspoon of dough is all that’s needed for each cookie…
