Chunky Pistachio, Cranberry & Choc Chip Cookies

As we all bunker down in what we hope will be the remaining weeks of Melbourne’s extended lockdown and enviously watch our friends and family out and about in the spring weather on social media in other states, it can be all too tempting to reach for a sugary snack full of preservatives to pep us up.

As a Wellbeing Coach in nutrition I love making my own recipes full of nutritious and wholesome ingredients… and a bit of naughtiness when I feel like something sweet.

I had fun on the weekend making these chunky pistachio, cranberry and chocolate chip cookies.

This recipe has been designed with sugar intake in mind. Additional honey can be added for sweetness if you prefer a sweeter cookie.

Lastly it only makes 6 cookies so that is 1 each for 6 people in the household with less temptation to eat a whole batch.

Have fun making and eating!
