Chocolate chip cookies- a little healthier recipe
Chocolate chip cookies- a little healthier recipe - I think that is an oxymoron. Steve and I still like a snack at the end of our day, once in a while we have a bit of a sweet craving. I always have homemade bread and jam in the house, sometimes popcorn, but sometimes we want chocolate! For those occasions, I made this chocolate chip cookie recipe. One or two of these cookies feels like a meal, so you won't overeat them!
2 cups white flour*
2 cups old rolled oats fashioned oats*
1tsp baking soda
Mix and set aside
In a mixer bowl- I use a stand mixer, but a hand one will work just fine
1/2 cup Smart balance (butter substitute- use butter if you can)
this is 1/2 the amount of a "normal" recipe
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
this is 1/3 the amount of a "normal" recipe
1/2 cup date pieces*
3 large eggs
2 cups choco or carob chips
1cup chopped nuts
you can also add raisins or cranberries - I like these in my cookies, but Steve is not a fan of them in the choco chip cookies.
Mix the wet ingredients, add the dry to the bowl
Bake at 375 until golden brown
about 4 dozen cookies.
These cookies freeze well, I keep ours in the freezer and just take them out one at a time. These were big favorites when I had kids at home.
I purchase a lot of my pantry staples from Amazon, I have no affiliation and I am not receiving any products. I have been using all of these products for at least 5 years. Once I received a 25lb bag of flour that was about to expire, I requested a return and instead I was sent a new bag of flour within a few days.
I hope you try these they are really great!
