It’s Tuesssssdeeeeee.

You are over the Monday blues…a.k.a. the “omg the weekend was so short and I wanted to do a million + 1 things but instead watched t.v. and never left the house on Sunday” blues.

But then…there’s Tuesday…which is like 3 days away from Friday and 1 day away from hump day, which is basically the middle of the week, so really you have less than 48 hours to the weekend…right?

You need a cookie…or cookie(s).

That’s where I come in.


Because I like to sneak healthy stuff into your cookies. Bet you didn’t know I put bananas up in there.


I hide it all with chocolate chips.


They are my secret weapon.


So are my black tights…which I used as a cookie back-drop.


Because no one said clothing wasn’t appropriate for camera props.


I make my own rules.


Wait…there are no rules.


Especially when there are chocolate chips involved.


Glad I could help.

    Hi Chelsy,

    I’ve been looking for gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free recipes and these cookies look delish! However, don’t chocolate chips have refined sugar in them?

    Kind Regards,

      Hi Sylvia! I use a specific type of vegan mini chocolate chips and they don’t use refined sugars. I also use a brand of dark chocolate chips that has no sugar whatsoever in it 🙂
