Chocolate Chip Alternative: Chop sweetened or unsweetened chocolate bar into small chunks. Our family loves the taste of 100% cocoa bars and that is what we prefer over sweetened chips or bars.
Sweeter Cookies: These cookies are a nice balance of sweet and savory. Try adding organic raisins to the cookie batter for a little extra sweetness.
