The Best Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

My brother has made these cookies over and over again, and each time I  turn into a sort of cookie monster. They’re so delicious and chewy, plus they don’t crumble all. This cookie has everything you could possibly want in a cookie, and they’re all healthy ingredients (well except for the chocolate chips).

This is definitely a recipe to save, and it is one that makes the house smell deliciously warm and comfy.

I’ve also started to participate in The Little Plantation’s Instagram Photography Challenge, and these cookies were one of my entries. There’s more at my Instagram feed.

These cookies, thanks to my brother, have become a staple in my house and they’re packed with everything healthy.

Ingredients:
1 1/4 cups oat flour (blend regular oats in a food processor to make oat flour)
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup coconut sugar
2 tbsp. shredded coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tbsp. cranberries
4 tbsp. almonds, chopped
2 tbsp. sunflower seeds
2 tbsp. chia seeds
5 dates, pitted and chopped
5 dried apricots, chopped
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cup coconut oil, melted
4 tbsp. almond milk

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 175 °C (350 °F). In a medium bowl, stir together the oat flour, oats, salt, baking soda, coconut sugar, shredded coconut and chocolate chips.
  2. Add in the cranberries, almonds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, dates and apricots.
  3. Mix in the vanilla extract, coconut oil and almond milk.
  4. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Use an ice cream scoop and compress the dough into the scoop. Put the cookie on the parchment paper and squish it so it’s flatter. Do the same for the rest.
  5. Bake for 8-9 minutes. They will be soft, but after they cool down the cookies will be firmer. Can keep for 5 days in an airtight container.

Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie

Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie

It’s made in less than a minute, which means you can make yourself a cookie whenever! All the ingredients are mixed in a ramekin and then baked in the microwave, giving you a soft cookie which literally melts into your mouth laced with chocolate chips. This healthy dessert came to mind after a friend from school suggested me to put a very easy and quick recipe on my blog. So here it is, J!
Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie

I love making this when I’m just too lazy to make a big batch of cookies, especially on school days. And for those microwave-haters, I got you covered. This can also be made in the oven, but will take around 15 minutes to bake.

The Healthiest Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Not only are they healthy, they taste awesome too! Coconut oil helps keep it all together and the oats are so flaky and delicious. This is the first time I’ve used oat flour ( I grinded oats in a food processor), and it acts exactly like regular flour! Make sure you grab a bit before everyone finishes it off.

The cookies are best eaten with a plate under so all the crumbs that fall can be picked up and eaten! Oh, and I just wanted to say that chocolate is my favorite thing to eat. Ever.

One piece of advice: Don’t forget to add the sugar! I made that mistake and realized it just after I had finished placing all the cookie dough neatly on the tray, all ready to go in the oven. So, sadly, I had to break all my nicely shaped cookies and mix it all together in a bowl with the sugar and then place then back on the tray. Read More »

Pumpkin Seed Tahini Banana Cookies Dipped in Chocolate

On Saturday, I was looking in the pantry and I saw this jar of tahini. Then I noticed a leftover jar of pumpkin seeds. And suddenly I had this craving for cookies. You can guess what happened next.

No more classic chocolate chip cookies for me! These chewy, thick, almost cake-like cookies are my new fave. These were so delicious, I ate about five of them straight out of the oven. But I felt like something was missing.Read More »
