Oat chocolate chip cookies

    40 min

    In an effort to find semi-healthy cookies to make with the kids, I fell upon a few recipes about a year ago that inspired me. So I started playing around with ingredients and tweaking it each time. I finally produced something that we love. No refined sugar added, just naturally sweetened with honey.

    Ride on the sugar train! I saw 1 cup of honey and thought holy mother of sweetness honey is quite a but sweeter than sugar so I don't know how unbearable it would be had I used the full cup. I did 1\2 cup honey plus 3 tbsp brown sugar for a molasses-y flavor and the were still very very sweet. It's still not healthy to be eating so much sugar even if it is unprocessed. Other than that the cookie was good. I didn't have ground flax only whole; so to offset the binding effect I used 1 whole egg plus 1\4 cup cornstarch. I lowered the cinnamon since I'm not a big fan, and used cranberries and almonds in half the batch and the other half I used chocolate chips. I'll probably make again and lower the honey further. It's a good starter recipe for a somewhat healthy breakfast cookie.  -  14 May 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are nice and chewy, lightly sweet, and quick and easy to make. I think I'd like them with dried fruit, too.  -  17 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It's like homemade granola bars! Very tasty, easy to make, and mine turned out nice and chewy - hoping my kids will like them in their school lunches. I made 2 slight modifications, I used two whole eggs (not just the whites), and used Sunflower Seed Butter instead of almond butter, since it's all I had, oh and I threw in a tablespoon or two of hemp and millet as I figured it would work will with the granola! I really like the taste of these, if my kids do too, I'll make them again and maybe even in the shape of a granola bar for a bigger snack portion.  -  03 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
