Date Sweetened Chocolate Chip Cookies. Stay with me here…I was not a believer – at all. When it comes to chocolate chip cookies I am a purist. Butter, sugar (the good stuff – think C&H), brown sugar and all-purpose white flour is the direction my cookies go. So, the unhealthy kind is where my head is at. While I still adore chocolate chip cookies, especially my tried and true all-time favorite recipe that you must try (click here), these Date Sweetened Chocolate Chip Cookies are an awesome and healthier alternative.
