Ultimate healthier oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies

I love making cookies but using butter is something that I always refrain from using. For these Ultimate healthier oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies I used olive oil, which I like much better.

Ultimate healthier oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies
I am extremely excited and happy to post this magnificent recipe…..regular chocolate chip cookies….MOVE OVER!!!!  These Ultimate healthier oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies are awesome!!!

Not only these Ultimate healthier oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies are better for you since I used less sugar, olive oil, oatmeal, wheat germ and whole wheat pastry flour, but they are still super simple to put together, and most importantly, they taste superb!

I use whole wheat pastry flour, wheat germ, olive oil and of course tons of oatmeal as well as dark chocolate chips which can easily be substituted with raisins and cinnamon and be turned into oatmeal and raisin cookies. I think shredded coconut and nuts will be an awesome combination as well…… Just throwing some ideas out there!!

There is nothing further I can really say about this recipe but that we loved them so so much. I made the cookies two days ago and disappeared within 48 hours :-) If you are on a path to healthier eating and have a sweet tooth these cookies may be the answer for you!

Enjoy!!

Cool the cookies about 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. They are so so so good…..

Ultimate healthier oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 30 cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup unrefined sugar
1 1/2 cup coconut oil melted, or light olive oil
2 eggs
2 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons aluminum free baking powder
1/2 cup wheat germ, oat bran also works well
2 cups dark chocolate chips, or 1 cup choc chips and 1 cup walnuts

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside. I used 4 cookie baking sheets at once, much faster

In a mixing bowl, with a wire whisk, mix first 3 ingredients. Add oatmeal, flour, baking powder, wheat germ and chocolate chips. Combine until all of the ingredients are mix thoroughly.

With a medium cookie scoop, place cookie batter onto prepared cookies sheets. Flatten them out with the palm of your hand slightly and bake for 12-14 minutes.

Cool cookies on the cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Nutrition facts calculated based on the recipe yielding 30 servings 1 serving = 1 cookie.

The cookies are really big but if you divide the batter by 60 medium-small cookies they will go down to 103 calories each. All of the other components will be also half.

  1. I love the combination of chocolate and orange. These truffles look pretty and I’m sure delicious. I would love them. I think I will coat them with cocoa powder. Thanks very much for sharing.
