Recipe: White Chocolate Key-Lime Chia Cookies

Step 1: Lay out all ingredients and measure accordingly.

Step 2: Make the dough.

Step 3: Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour before baking.

Step 4: Apply chia seeds and sugar to dough balls.

Someone asked me: “Why did you put chia seeds in cookies?”

My answer: “Because I incorporate healthy habits in my cooking and baking.   For this recipe they’re just pleasing to the eye, the chia seeds are not over powering.”

You can’t taste them at all. This step is optional.

Step 5 (optional): Prepare pomegranate

Not only do the pomegranate seeds provide a pop of color, they’re a nice pop of flavor in between each cookie bite.

Step 6: After cookies are done baking for 8-10 minutes, let cool serve and enjoy!

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
