A healthier take on an old favourite. With added antioxidants and monounsaturated fats thanks to the added extra virgin olive oil, Natvia Sweetener reducing the sugar content and calories, and oats to increase their fiber content. This recipe doesn’t compromise the flavour of delicious choc chip cookies to be a healthier option. Great for an afternoon treat to keep you full until dinner!
These choc-chip cookies are super delicious all while staying refined sugar-free!
Makes 15 cookies
- ¾ cup rolled oats
- 1 cup of plain flour
- 1 tsp bicarb soda
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup Natvia Sweetener
- ¼ cup butter, softened
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup of dark choc chips
- Preheat oven to 180C
- Line two baking trays with baking paper
- Blend the oats up in blender or food processor until a coarse flour consistency is made
- Stir the flour, bicarb, and oats together in a medium bowl
- Whisk the butter until light and fluffy
- Add the oil, Natvia, vanilla and egg and whisk until well combined
- Fold in the flour until combined and a dough forms
- Add the choc chips and fold through
- Roll the dough into little balls and place on the tray, spread apart because the dough will increase in size while baking. Press each ball down with a fork
- Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until slightly golden in colour
- Let cool before eating, or else they may crumble to pieces
Store in an airtight container for freshness,
