Healthy Cookie Heaven

25 Jan

I LOVE cookies, and I wanted to take a quick moment to share with you all my favorite healthy cookie recipe.

This recipe is from celebrity chef (and my favorite Bravo-lebrity) Bethenny Frankel.

Ingredients

Dry
1 & 1/2 cups Oat Flour (I use wheat flour)
3/4 cup Rolled Oats
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet
1/2 raw sugar (yeah..I just use regular)
1/3 cup chocolate chips (dark chips are fab)
1 teaspoon canola oil
1/3 cup soy milk
1/2 cup banana puree (I blend 1 large or 2 small bananas up in my GNC blender)
1 teaspoon vanilla

**If you’re adventurous, add some Chia seeds! This will give it an extra crunch and added nutrients!

What to do

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Combine all wet ingredients, mix
  3. Combine all dry ingredients, mix
  4. Mix it all together until the batter is sticky (don’t panic – this recipe is relatively dry)
  5. Use tablespoon and scoop batter onto cookie sheet
  6. Bake 12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through cooking (monitor cookies to ensure they do not over cook!)

 

Enjoy!!

    I have been making these Bethany cookies for years and they are wonderful. My kids LOVE them. Everyone who tastes them likes them except for one of my neighbors (not known for his exquisite taste OR healthy diet) who tasted one and spit it out! He subsists on cheap wine and fried foods!
