In case you missed it, one of my New Years Resolutions was to eat healthier. I have a serious sweet tooth and my biggest enemies to healthy eating are sugary snacks and soda drinks. Cutting back on the sugar has been difficult. However I’ve found that switching to Truvia from regular sugar and drinking Bigelow tea instead of soda makes me feel better and more energized all around. So today I’m bringing you a recipe that is helping me stay on track with my resolutions and still satisfy my sweet tooth cravings – using Truvia Baking Blend and Bigelow Green Tea. Yes, you read that right – I actually used green tea to make these cakes. Think I’m crazy? Well think again because they are delicious. Plus they pair up perfectly with a cup of warm Bigelow Cozy Chamomile tea.
These cookies are simple and light, but melt in your mouth and have just the right amount of flavor.
Here’s what you need:
-1 Cup Butter, Softened
-1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
-2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
-1/4 Teaspoon Salt
-1/3 Cup Sweetener
-2 Pouches Bigelow Green Tea
Here’s what you do:
1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
2. In large bowl beat butter, Truvia and vanilla until smooth.
3. Slowly add flour, and cut open packets of green tea and empty contents into mixture. Keep mixing until well combined. Your mixture should look something like this:
4. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes until slightly browned. Allow to cool before serving.

These look delicious and I love that they are lighter than a regular cookie. I love that you used the green tea in the cookie as well. #client
