(nasty iPhone picture-sorry! They're so good! I promise!)
So if you want a really delicious and super sweet chocolate chip oatmeal cookie, but don't want to feel super guilty after eating one or two or seven.....follow this recipe!
1/2 cup Xylitol (I used Xyla brand)
1/2 cup Sugar in the Raw
1/2 cup solid, room temperature coconut oil (I used Nutiva brand)
1/2 cup almond butter (I used MaraNatha brand)
Instead of eggs-4 tablespoons water, 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil, 2 teaspoons baking soda
(mix together until well blended and gelatinous--I think it's good when the coconut oil starts re-solidifying)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups unbleached flour
2 1/2 cups steel cut toasted oats (I use Coach's Oats brand from Costco)
1 cup non-dairy chocolate chips (I threw away the bag so I can't remember the brand name but you can find them at a Sprouts/Whole Foods/Trader Joe's kind of place!)
Cream together sugars, coconut oil and almond butter, then add egg replacement mixture and mix well. Add baking soda, baking powder, salt and vanilla. Add flour and oats and mix, then add chocolate chips. The dough is sort of dry so pack it together in small balls and put on cookie sheet lightly greased with coconut oil. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Enjoy!! Try these out and tell me what you think!
All my love, B.
