My kids come back from school starving and yes I could give them healthy snacks but as they eat healthy all day they tend to have a cookie of some description – Rainbow Candy Crunch Cookies are one of their favourites however they also love Chocolate Chip Cookies. This week we have been giving up sugar in partnership with Canderel and their #SweetSmart campaign, so I decided to experiment with a sugar free version of their favourite chocolate chip cookies.

Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients for Sugar Free Chocolate Chip and Candy Cookies
