Okay, I admit…I have given my kids the store-bought Bear Paws cookies! It’s really the convenience factor for me, especially when making their school lunches. But it finally dawned on me; if I only feed myself the best and healthiest foods, why wouldn’t I feed my kids the same nutritious foods?!
Just check out the ingredients for the store-bought Bear Paws cookies: sugar, palm oil, dextrose, etc. Is that something you want to be giving your kids? Probably not. Now that’s not to say I’ll never buy them again, because as a busy mom, sometimes I need those conveniences, but when I do have the time to bake cookies for my kids, I’ll definitely be making these Healthy Homemade Bears Paws Cookies instead.
These Healthy Homemade Bear Paws Cookies contain ONLY wholesome ingredients. Ingredients like coconut oil, whole wheat flour, and chia seeds. I decided to add the mini chocolate chips because my kids love chocolate chip cookies, and anything that helps them eat healthier is okay with me 🙂
And yes, my kids did gobble these healthy cookies up! I put them in their school lunches as a healthy treat, or they like to have one for an after-school snack. I hope you and your family enjoy these healthier cookies too!
