My husband has a weakness for cookies late at night.
Usually, after we have dinner we watch some movie or TV show and that’s the cookie-craving-moment for him.
TV = Cookies, that’s his premise.
As we’re not planning to stop watching our favorite TV shows (by the way, we’re still mourning Breaking Bad) I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a cookie recipe that he really enjoys and that is healthier than the store bought which are basically sugar in form of cookie with chocolate cream!
My best friend happens to be a professional cook (lucky me!) and she gave me this delicious recipe. She uses no calorie sweetener but I substituted it with a bit of honey and brown sugar. Use whatever you like best, they will be awesome anyway!
Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies: 38 cookies
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 cup old fashion rolled oats
- 1 cup peanut butter (or any other nut butter)
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup honey
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup chocolate chips (I chopped high quality chocolate)
- Preheat oven at 170ºC and line a tray with parchment paper.
- Combine dry ingredients in a bowl except chocolate chips.
- Stir wet ingredients in other bowl.
- Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix.
- Add chocolate chips with a spatula.
- Form balls of around 1 tablespoon of dough and make them flat with your fingers. The cookies won’t spread while baking.
- Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
- Let them cool and store them in an air-proof container.
