I took a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and substituted some healthier ingredients. For example, instead of using regular flour I used oat flour and quinoa flour. Why? Because for roughly the same calories you get a lot more protein and fiber using oat and quinoa flour. Plus, it’s much fancier.
Instead of using normal sugar, I tried Splenda. It tastes just as sweet minus the calories. So, while eating a cookie is never as good as eating a salad (let’s be real here) at least this recipe is cleaner than a typical one. Enjoy!
- 1 cup almond butter
- 3/4 cup Splenda
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 cup oat flour
- 1 cup quinoa flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips
5. Drop by teaspoons onto cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet.
