Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies (Reader favorite)
And an easy healthy cookie recipe for Oatmeal Almond Butter Cookies!
- 1/2 cup roasted almond butter, softened to a stir-able consistency
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp quick oats
- just under level 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup sugar or xylitol
- 2 tbsp applesauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie tray with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients to form a dough. Due to the natural oils in almond butter, the dough can be a bit oily, so have a napkin ready to wipe your hands as you work. Form cookie balls with your hands, and place on the cookie sheet. Leave room between cookies, as they will spread as they bake. Bake 8 minutes. The cookies should still look a little underdone when you remove them, but they’ll firm up as they cool. Set the tray aside for at least 10 minutes before picking up a cookie.
