My Favorite Healthy Cookies!

Here is my favorite healthy cookie recipe! It is peanut butter chocolate chip flavored! Trying to eat clean and still enjoy yummy foods is pretty tough. So I found a recipe online and tweaked it to my liking, now I am going to share it with you guys!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup slightly processed quick oats (put them in a blender or food processor for a second to process them.
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter (no processed crap)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (or whatever you desire)
  • 2 table spoons agave syrup to sweeten (You can add refined sugar if you like, about 1/8 of a cup or whatever to your taste)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs (or three egg whites. 1/4 cup)

STEPS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees ferinheight.
  2. Take 1 cup of quick oats and toss them in a blender or a food processor for a couple seconds. Do not process too much, you still want to be able to tell there are oat flakes!
  3. Add oats to large bowl, and add the rest of the ingredients.
  4. MIX! If the batter is too thick (looks dry like pasty dough) then carefully add some olive oil or some other fat.

  1. Prep a cookie sheet, either spray it with cooking oil or put some parchment paper on it. 
  2. Make golf balls out of the batter and put the balls with about 1 inch between them on the tray. Do not worry too much about the space, these cookies do not expand alot. 
  3. With a small bowl of milk (cow, almond or soy) dipping a fork into the milk press down the cookies gently to flatten them only a little bit. The milk helps the cookies not stick to your fork.

  1. Put the tray into the heated oven and let them cook for 10 minutes. 
  2. Voila! Now you have decently healthy cookies. They should still be a bit gooey on the inside. 

Thank you for reading! I love these cookies so much. I like to keep mine on the not-so-sweet side, and this recipe reflects that. But feel free to add more sugar/sweetener to your liking. 

These cookies are the best with a cup of coffee.
