Can homemade cookies be good for you?
If made correctly, homemade cookies contain high-quality ingredients, including healthy fats, natural sugar and real chocolate. In contrast, store-bought cookies contain fewer calories and less sugar than their handmade counterparts.
What makes a cookie healthier?
Whole grains provide fiber and protein. Whole wheat flour and oats are used in many cookie recipes. Nuts add fiber and can replace some of the fat in cookies. Since the fat in nuts is healthier than butter or shortening, it can increase the overall health value of the cookie.
What is a healthy substitute for cookies?
One of the best alternatives to baked goods and cookies is yogurt with homemade granola. Unlike baked goods, which contain high amounts of fat and calories and can therefore promote the development of obesity, this is a healthy treat that can actually improve your health while curbing your sweet tooth.
Can I eat cookies every day?
As long as your overall diet is healthy – a variety of foods, mostly plant-based, not too much or too little – and as long as the total added sugars are no more than 5% of your daily calories (about 25 grams for an adult male), a cookie is totally harmless.
