Deliciously Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

0

If you are like me, a little chocolate or sweet bite is a must at some point in our day, so why feel guilty about it?! I am not the greatest baker, but somehow I conquered a delicious, completely nutritious combination with these chocolate chip cookies. Great for our minis too!!

Husband & Toddler Approved Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract (look for the real stuff)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup of coconut oil
  • 3 cups oat flour (take your old fashioned oats in the pantry and blend up, so easy)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda (make sure it’s fresh)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 scoop of chocolate Juice Plus Chocolate Complete (not a must, but extra nutritional kick of fiber and protein)
  • 1 cup of mini chocolate chips (your preference of milk or dark chocolate will do)

Preparation:

  1. Take regular old fashioned oats or quick oats and blend them until they resemble a flour or powder in a blender or food processor.
  2. Combine the vanilla extract, large egg, and brown sugar in a bowl. Melt the coconut oil and let it cool slightly before adding to the bowl. Stir everything together until just combined.
  3. Stir in the oat flour (measured after blending NOT before), baking soda, and salt.
  4. Stir until just combined and then fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Chill the dough for at least one hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. Using a spoon or cookie scoop (and pack these in the scoop very tightly or they may crumble), scoop out balls of the dough onto a cookie sheet. I simply used a spoon and rolled mini balls into my hand and placed on the cookie sheet, little more mess on the hands but nothing to drive you nuts.
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.
  9. Remove and allow to stay on the baking sheet for another 2 minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack.
  10. Serve & Enjoy!
