FUELED Wellness + Nutrition | Chocolate Chips | Love it, Like it, Hate it!

FUELED Wellness with Molly

Healthy baking is truly within reach. With trade-outs like almond flour for white flour, coconut oil for butter and plant-based sweeteners for sugar, it’s possible to create legitimately good-for-you sweet treats. And now, the array of low- and no-sugar chocolate chip options makes it easier to create a wholesome sweet treat from start to finish.

Real Talk | If what we’re adding ends up being just a bit of chocolate chips per serving, it doesn’t really matter so much which variety we use. But since we have better options available to us now, we can do better, and every little bit adds up.
