4 Best Healthy Cookie Recipes

Who says cookies have to be bad for you? These recipes are all absolutely delicious and come with minimal fat, sugar and calories so that you can enjoy them guilt-free.

Zucchini chocolate chip cookies

You might think that zucchini in a cookie sounds a little strange, but they actually taste great in sweet treats and help to make your cookies extra moist and gooey.

Technically, zucchini is a fruit rather than a vegetable and it’s incredibly rich in nutrients. It’s high in antioxidants and it’s thought that it helps to maintain a healthy digestive system.

This zucchini chocolate chip cookie recipe from Delish can be made in either the oven or the air fryer, and you could easily make it dairy-free by switching out the butter and yogurt for dairy-free alternatives and finding some dairy-free chocolate chips.

It’s a simple recipe where you simply beat the ingredients together in a large bowl, form the mixture into cookies, and then bake for 15 minutes.

Apple pie oatmeal cookies

This apple pie cookie recipe is a great choice to feed your family because the cookies taste exactly like apple pie! And, because it’s free from refined flour and sugar they are low calorie at only 71 calories per serving.

They’re made with oats that are packed full of essential nutrients, and they are also high in fiber which is good for your digestion. Oats are a good source of carbohydratesthat your body uses for energy, and they are also slow release. This means that if you eat oats you are likely to be fuller for longer, which is why they are so popular as breakfast food.

If you want to make these cookies extra adorable, try using apple-shaped cookie cutters to give them a shape that goes with their flavor!

Double chocolate breakfast cookies

How can a double chocolate breakfast cookie be healthy, you ask? Well, the recipe actually started life as a breakfast smoothie, so the ingredients are totally wholesome! Some of the sweetness in the dish comes from maple syrup, which is still pretty sugary, but it’s better for you than refined sugar because it raises your blood sugar levels more slowly.

The rest of the sweetness comes from over-ripe banana, and there is also a good helping of nut butter in there to ensure that you get the protein you need to start your day right.

Pumpkin sugar cookies

Pumpkin is completely under appreciated as an ingredient! In October, people buy tons of them to carve into jack o’ lanterns, but nobody ever really does much with the delicious flesh (apart from a pumpkin pie, of course).

Pumpkin is perfect in soups and stews, and even better it’s great for making pumpkin sugar cookies. This recipe comes from the minimalist baker who is well known for making incredible vegan recipes, so these are perfect if you have a vegan friend or family member and you don’t know what to serve them.

Try serving them up with a pumpkin buttercream to make them extra decadent.
