A real crowd pleaser, these whole wheat fruit pizza cookies are the perfect healthy-yet-delicious summertime treat! Today I’m sharing the recipe for these amazing cookies!!
I haven’t seen cookies disappear this fast from a cookie plate in…well, ever to be exact. I was so pleasantly surprised by how well loved these healthy fruit pizza cookies were, because, let’s face it, in the summertime it’s hard to have healthy desserts with all the ice cream treats and other non-healthy treats near.
With everything going on in the summer, it’s tough to get fruits and grains in. This recipe has both, it fuels your awesome summertime get-togethers. I made these for a family dinner, and everyone loved them. I’m talking EVERYONE, including my husbands’ 10 year old cousin who asked his mom to get the recipe because he loved them so much – if that isn’t a stamp of approval, I don’t know what is!
The cookie dough is made with my favorite brand for grains/flours: Bob’s Red Mill. You guys know how much I LOVE Bob’s Red Mill products, right? Just this last weekend I made waffles, like I did in this waffle bar post and I also made this one pot Thai shrimp and quinoa for lunches for the week! I feel really good about using their products and making recipes with wholesome ingredients in them, for these cookies I used Bob’s Red Mill whole wheat flour.
I wanted the cookies to be like a classic fruit pizza, which are typically on a sugar cookie-type crust, so I based this recipe on my sugar cut out cookies, but made them healthier by using whole wheat flour, and by using less butter/sugar. The whole wheat flour really helped the structure of these cookies be sturdy yet soft in texture, and then the lemony frosting and fruit really gave the cookie a wonderful sweetness and made this cookie second to none.
Next time you’re looking for a summertime treat, look no further than these whole wheat fruit pizza cookies, they are SO SO SO good!!
I’d love to know – what is your favorite summertime baked goods treat?
