Delicious Protein-Packed Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
This Cookie recipe comes to us from our Nutrition Coach Heather Roy. Read on to hear what she had to say. Makes 24 cookies.
“Hi everyone, I wanted to take one of our most loved recipes and tweak it to be “just a little bit better”. Cookies, we all love them right! What I have learned and what I love to share with others is eating better is beyond a meal plan. If you have struggled with nutrition then working at building an improved mindset will help you in learning to have a positive relationship with nutrition, slowly. Small, achievable techniques over time will lead to many mini-wins to celebrate building up to a large win long-term.”
“So when I took this recipe, I didn’t want to completely revamp it to be something you bake but no one really enjoys. I created it to be “just a little bit better”. My hubby and both my kids were home at the time of writing this, they are ages almost 11 and 12. I had them taste them and it was a hit! So I knew I had to share it with others.”
“They are just the right bit of sweetness, not a ton of chocolate chips, but enough to have some in every cookie. They are delicious! Great texture too. I will say, the mix is slightly wet but not so much that it sticks to the spoons too much. The mix will not be dough like and you can not roll it. I did use slightly more than 2 cups of the oats, next time I might try adding 1/4 cup ground flax to the 2 cups of oats and 1 1/4 flour. Depending on your oven, you might need slightly more than 10 mins.”
