Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

So at first I did not want to try these cookies because I thought “A healthy chocolate chip cookie?  That will probably not taste very good.”  But oh I was so wrong!  These are delicious, delicious, delicious!  (I thought if I said it 3x you would know I meant it!)

These are not just “oh for a healthy cookie they’re good” they are just GOOD because they are yummy! This is another recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie.

These don’t have any butter in them or shortening for that matter.  They also don’t have any eggs, so if you want you can just eat the cookie dough!  I may have had less cookies than I could have because I ate several cookies worth of dough! :)

The recipe makes less than a dozen, so the first day I made them Peter and I ate them all!  The second time I made them, I omitted the white sugar as well as doubled the batch- we also ate all of them in a day! These are so addicting and delicious!  I am craving them again as I write this.

Update: After I posted this, I wanted some more, so I just finished making another batch and I used oat flour (just grind up oats) and no oil (I added another tbsp of milk). Without the oil they don’t stick together as well, but good enough to eat! It would be a good idea to refrigerate them before cooking.  Plus without the oil they were only 25 calories I just ate 3! yum yum!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix your dry ingredients, then add in wet.
  2. If you want super-soft cookies, fridge the dough after rolling into balls. Then cook them after the dough is cold.
  3. Form cookies and bake 6-7 minutes. Take out when still underdone–they’ll continue to cook while cooling, and so you don’t want them to get hard.
