Healthy Choc-Mint Cream Cookies

After a delicious, healthy dinner you may crave something sweet. Instead of indulging in a treat loaded with sugar and fat, why not try these scrumptious little morsels that won’t derail your healthy eating.

The ‘cream’ layer is made using a method similar to making raw chocolate. It’s simple, fast and uses nutritious ingredients. In this recipe, pure stevia can be used in either powder or liquid form.

Low calorie, sugar-free and high fibre- these choc-mint delights are the perfect treat.
