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.
As always, I recommend using organic and whole ingredients as much as possible…especially with flaxseeds and eggs.
Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2/3 cup brown sugar*
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 2 organic eggs
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1-1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup organic ground flaxseed
- 2 cups oatmeal
- 1/4 cup oat bran
- 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 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)?
