These cookies are whole-grain, and the recipe has a lot less sugar and oil than traditional chocolate-chip cookies. But they do NOT taste healthy at all!
For the oat flour, you can make your own by grinding rolled oats in a food processor or blender until they turn into a fine powder. Just be sure to measure the needed amount after blending. You could also sub spelt flour. Feel free to try other flours, but I can’t vouch for the results.
For the macadamia nuts: you can sub chopped almonds or walnuts or pecans or any other nut you desire. You can also just leave the nuts out entirely.
For the oil: feel free to omit the oil if you wish… but I’m definitely not vouching for the results if you do!
For the sugar:
