I don’t know about you, but I need a treat now and then. When I have something decadent, I wan’t it to be something that I have been craving made in a healthier way than I used to eat it. Lately, I have really missed chocolate chip cookies. I added pecans to this recipe, since I am a nut and cookie fan, but you do’t need to add nuts if you are in the nut free cookie camp. I think our household is 50/50 in our preference  to add or not to add nuts.

Although this is not a low sugar recipe, I have used honey to sweeten them, which makes them chewy. The chocolate chips are Lily’s Dark Chocolate No Sugar Added Chocolate Chips sweetened with Stevia. I buy them at my local coop, or they can be found here.

    These cookies are the bomb! I’m a huge baker, so being on the SIBO diet has been a hard transition. I miss my carbs! With this cookie, I feel like I’m not missing anything. The first time I made them, I ate 5 in one day. Probably not SIBO diet friendly, but I couldn’t help myself!
