Chocolate Chip Cookies with Hidden Tofu
We love to eat cookies! Chocolate chip cookies have got to rank as one of the worlds favorite cookiesits one of our family favorites anyway. Unfortunately there are no wise words that say A cookie a day keeps the doctor away! Of course, there is evidence that a merry heart does good, like a medicine and I always feel quite merry when Im eating a cookie therefore, I am convinced that eating a cookie is good for you, especially if you are quite regular about it!
Truthfully, this year I have been mindful of making healthier choices, even when I bake. This recipe has a hidden benefit: tofu. You cant taste the tofu in these cookies but it adds some protein. Tofu benefits also include iron, calcium and the minerals manganese, selenium and phosphorus, as well as a few other goodies. So, if youre trying to be smart about your indulgences, this version can soothe the conscience as it pleases the palate.
