I have been searching for a great, healthier, oat cookie recipe for such a long time. One without refined sugar and no flour (not even the expensive healthy alternative known as almond flour). I am happy to say that I have found the PERFECT oat cookie recipe!
So as you can probably tell from the introduction, I found this recipe, it is NOT my own. I have made an adaption to this recipe, but all the credit must go to the fabulous Leah Itsines! She has the most incredibly easy and delicious recipes on her blog. I have made quite a few of them already and LOVE them all! So do check out her website!Jump to Recipe
Now back to these amazing cookies. They are oat, chocolate-chip and raspberry cookies (here is the link to Leah’s recipe)
I love them so much I could probably make them every day haha. Another great thing about these ruby oat gems is that they seem to work with other fruits. Like I mentioned before, I have tried (and succeeded at) an adaption of the recipe – I substituted the raspberries for an orange. They are just as addictively yummy! I simply cut the orange into segments, removed all flesh from the skin and the segment dividers, squashed the flesh into small pieces and added it to the cookie dough. Easy, peasy, orange squeezy.
So if you have been searching for a yummy, healthier oat cookie recipe, DEFINITELY give this a try!
Deliciously Healthy Choc-Chip Oat Cookies
- 1/2 cup Dark Chocolate-Chips
- 1 tbsp Desiccated Coconut
- 3 tbsp Butter, room temperature
- 3 tbsp Honey
- 2 cups Rolled Oats (Gluten Free if you wish)
- 1/2 cup Fresh Raspberries or 1 Orange
- 1 Egg
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
Use an electric mixer or whisk to cream together the egg and butter.
Add in the oats, honey, coconut, choc-chips and raspberries/orange. Mix together with the mixer/whisk, and then use your hand to work the batter for 2 min. It will be a bit wet, this is normal.
When the batter has come together, roll small balls and place them on a lined baking tray. flatten them slightly, and bake for 12 minutes. They should be golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool down completely (still on the baking tray). Enjoy!
