Yes They’re Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip “Cookies”

Essentially every time I have company or am invited as company somewhere else I bake. I like to bake, I’m pretty good at it and, let’s face it, I grew up with my Nana. Food = love, for better or worse. Also, essentially every time I bake the recipient asks me “Are these healthy? Are they low fat?”

Usually, no. See, I make that stuff at home for me but for guests? I prefer to offer up the most delicious option available and that often requires butter, eggs, and sugar.

But these? I promise, I would even make these for company. If I could stand to part with them myself!

Yes They’re Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip “Cookies”

1 cup Old Fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cups oat flour (rolled oats in the food processor until a fine flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup flax seed meal
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup Splenda
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips (you could sub raisins, or carob chips)
3 Tbs ANPB
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup water
2 Tbs extra light olive oil (can use canola, or vegetable, or coconut)

Preheat oven to 350. Mix everything in a bowl until it mostly sticks together in a ball. Spray a cookie sheet and form 12 balls and flatten. Bake for 12 minutes. Hoard for yourself or, if you’re nice, share!

For each cookie:
112 calories
6 g fat (the good kinds! um, except the chocolate chips. Shh)
10.6 g carb
2.3 g fiber

Here's my deal. It's wicked exciting!
