Who doesn’t like cookies right? Especially ones with choc chips!
The whole time I was doing the 30 Days to Healthy Living Program I knew that I couldn’t do life without the occasional cookie. So I set about researching and really weighing up ingredients to decide how I could enjoy a cookie treat without trading in my commitment to healthy eating.
The recipe below is my balancing scales. Wholefood ingredients, a few options to substitute if needing or wanting, but super delicious. They are egg free, and can be made to be gluten free, dairy free and nut free as required. They have very little sugar, but that also can be swapped out as well.
They got the tick of approval from my bread loving, allergy free, 6 year old too!
200g spelt flour or gluten free flour if needed
30g of almond meal or LSA (linseed, sunflower and almond mix) or any other nut meal, or even more flour
1/2 tsp bi-carb
50g brown sugar or honey or maple syrup
125g room temp butter or safe oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla paste or seeds of half a vanilla bean
Dark choc chips (dairy free if needed)
- Place all ingredients in processor except chic chips and mix until coming together (TM 15 sec/sp 4)
- Add choc chips and and mix through (TM 5 sec/ reverse sp 3)
- Bake for 10-15 mins at 170 C
So simple but so good. Hope you like them!
