Found this recipe and put my clean spin on it. They were amazing, chewy, and chocolaty.

  • Mix flour, cocoa nibs, honey, prunes, vanilla extract, baking powder, and sea salt together in a bowl until batter is smooth. Scoop batter using a cookie scoop and drop into a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned, about 8 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can sub the prune puree with 2 tablespoons real butter. Alternately, you can use 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon Greek Yogurt or avocado.

You can use your choice of sugar alternative, like sucanat.

You can use whole wheat flour or gluten-free flour.

Chocolate chips can be used in place of the cocoa nibs. Be sure your choice of cocoa nibs or chips are 70% cocoa or higher.

These were great for something so low fat and 'healthy'. I used Greek yoghurt in place of pureed prunes because I am lazy and felt the extra sugar was unnecessary. These will be a regular! Read More

These were pretty good though I think I'd use dark chocolate chips next time--I wasn't a big fan of the cocoa nibs. But this recipe is a nice option for a healthy treat. I will say the first time I made them the dough was very dry and I wasn't able to form balls of dough to make the cookies. I figured out that the prunes needed to be blended with hot water to make the puree. In a food processor I mixed 6 ounces of prunes with 6 tablespoons of hot water then used 2 tablespoons of puree in the recipe. I was pretty sure it would be impossible to puree just the 2 tablespoons called for so I didn't try that but the recipe only yeilds about a dozen cookies so you could easily double it to make more use of the puree.
