What if I told you that you could eat this entire batch of cookies for only 260 calories – 8 grams of fat, 37 grams of carbs (8 grams fiber), and 11 grams of protein?
Consider this recipe a sneak peak into the new cookbook I’m currently working on: The Healthy Cookie Cookbook. The new cookbook will contain tons of healthy cookie recipes, so you can always eat the entire batch with zero guilt! I will keep you all updated on the release date as it gets closer.
This recipe makes 9 delicious oatmeal raisin cookies. There is something so comforting about warm oatmeal cookies with a hint of cinnamon. These cookies would make the perfect healthy breakfast, afternoon snack, or guilt-free dessert. Plus they are gluten free, refined sugar free, and can easily be made vegan.
All 9 cookies: 260 calories – 8 F / 37 C / 11 P
2 Tablespoons coconut flour
2 Tablespoons gluten-free quick oats
1/4 scoop cinnamon swirl or vanilla protein powder (I use Slap Nutrition – discount code: SARAH)
1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar)
2 stevia packets (or other granulated sweetener of choice equivalent to 1.5 tablespoons)
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground flaxseed (this helps hold them together, you may be able to omit it)
2 Tablespoons applesauce
1 teaspoon oil of choice
1 Tablespoon almond milk
1.5 Tablespoons raisins
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix dry ingredients in a small bowl (for vegan option: use vegan protein powder or omit). Add all wet ingredients except almond milk and stir to combine. Slowly add almond milk until you reach a thick cookie dough consistency. Add raisins. Form dough into 9 balls and flatten to desired thickness (they do not spread while baking). Bake on a parchment lined or greased baking sheet for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown on the edges. Allow to cool and drizzle with optional healthy icing (recipe below).
Healthy Icing Ingredients (adds 35 calories – 3.5 F / 1.3 C / 0.3 P):
1 teaspoon coconut butter
1/2 packet stevia (optional)
Melt coconut butter, and stir in stevia if desired. Drizzle over cooled cookies. Enjoy!
