Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies for an after school snack

I’m curious. Are there even people who don’t like chocolate chip cookies? I mean, who would pick a cookie with raisins or nuts over a cookie with chocolate chips? Seriously. Do people do that?

I’m not against nuts or dried fruit in cookies…but I could never see myself choosing raisins over chocolate chips. Not happening. Ever. I’m just not that good.

These cookies aren’t low carb, vegan, or gluten free…however; they are made with healthier ingredients like coconut oil and whole wheat flour – there are also some heart-healthy omega-3s with the addition of nuts (yes, nuts are good WITH chocolate chips!) and flaxseeds. These are a great snack or dessert for kids who need a lot more carbs than us grownups.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

As always, I recommend using organic and whole ingredients as much as possible…especially with flaxseeds and eggs.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. 1/2 cup butter
  2. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  3. 2/3 cup brown sugar*
  4. 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  5. 2 organic eggs
  6. 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  7. 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  8. 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  9. 1-1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  10. 1/4 cup organic ground flaxseed
  11. 2 cups oatmeal
  12. 1/4 cup oat bran
  13. 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  14. 3/4 cup chocolate chips

*Coconut sugar is an even better option

In a mixer, cream the butter, coconut oil and sugar. Add the vanilla, eggs, salt, baking soda and powder. Fold in the rest of the ingredients. Form small cookie dough balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Are you a dried fruit or nut fan with cookies? Or maybe you’re into the chocolate chips (like me)?

    I love how puffy these cookies are. I always hate when my cookies turn out flat… I’m more of a chocolate chip girl myself, I don’t like nuts or things in my cookies or brownies or breads. Not a fan.

    They sound good to me! I love chocolate chip cookies, and I can’t turn down a healthified version.

  3. Christine @ Love, Life, Surf

    These look delicious! I’m definitely into chocolate chips, not so much the dried fruit or nuts.

  5. Angela @ Happy Fit Mama

    I am one of those strange people that do not care for chocolate, especially chocolate chip cookies. I love peanut butter cookies, anything but chocolate chip. Your cookie look great though! Good enough to at least have a bite lol.

    I LOVE raisins in oatmeal cookies. A personal favourite. I’d actually pick them 2000 times, before I’d pick a chocolate chip cookie. Haha… Weird, right? Glad you got home safely!

  8. Laura @ Mommy Run Fast

    Yes! I love baking with coconut oil… and butter. :) These look so yummy!!

    I like lots of walnuts in my cookies, plus some dried cherries, along with some chocolate chips or maybe dark chocolate chunks. More nuts than chocolate, though.

  11. Debbie @ Live from La Quinta

    I totally agree with you on the chocolate chip over other type of cookie thought. They are definitely my favorite! (I see from the above comments though that not everybody agrees with us…crazy!)

    You know I always choose raisins over chocolate chips :)

    Nicole – Haha, of course…YOU! Maybe someday I’ll understand! ;)

    I’m a recent convert to organic products and natural fats, loved seeing your coconut oil in the recipe, can’t wait to try these out!

    Hi there. I googled best coalochte chip cookie recipe, or something similar and came across several recipes. Yours looked the closest to what I wanted. There’s a bakery in town that makes the best coalochte chip walnut cookies. They’re slightly dry-chewy-crunchy on the outside and moist-chewy-chocolatey on the inside with at least a walnut bite every other bite So I followed your recipe pretty close, just adding some walnuts and maybe a little less coalochte chips. Also, I didn’t have baking soda and felt ashamed to substitute a larger portion of baking powder. I do not own a mixer so I improvised doing it all by hand. I kept the butter a little colder but it probably is best to do this with a mixer. Despite the inconsistencies, Wow!!! I was not dissapointed. I just ate 2 and a half with a glass of milk. After writing this comment, they’ll have cooled the proper amount of time. I think I’ll go have another right now. Thank you for sharing!
