Being a Monday morning, I found myself craving chocolate, smothered in chocolate, with a helping of coconut and nut butter, topped with more chocolate. With that as my inspiration, I decided to bake. I just made a batch of some super yummy, anything goes cookies! Yup, they helped chase a case of the Mondays away!
The Super Food Sneak
Okay- so I will be straight with you, these aren’t super amazingly healthy cookies. However, I have tried to make this recipe a healthier alternative to regular cookies. Like using cacao instead of cocoa or using coconut sugar instead of highly processed white sugar. That being said, you can always substitute a different ingredient if you do not currently have all of them on your shelf.
Another ingredient note, I use bisquick or a homemade bisquick in this recipe. The reason I use bisquick in a lot of my recipes is to save time. When you have young kids drooling over, sticking their fingers in, or trying to dump out your mixing bowls speed is key. So if you do not like bisquick, you can easily make a homemade (less processed) version of it to substitute.
These anything goes cookies came about during an unusually long nap that both girls took, get this, at the SAME time! Yes!!! So what does mommy do? Well the kitchen was clean, so why don’t we mess it up a bit! I just got crazy and pretty much threw everything that sounded good in a bowl and called it a cookie…hence the name anything goes cookies. Kind of a junk cookie of sorts…that name just doesn’t sound as good. 🙂
To be completely honest, my husband is not a huge fan of these cookies. He really isn’t a huge chocolate person (weird, I know), so that might be part of it. However, both the girls and I love them! So I am counting that as a win. These anything goes cookies made a great start to the week!
