Wholesome Oatmeal Coconut Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthy Dark Chocolate

[ Dark chocolate chips ]

I find baking extremely therapeutic. Its measurements are exact & girly and allows my creativity to flow. I am always trying to substitute ingredients to make my baking bites a bit healthier. This specific recipe was all organic and turned out to be a learning experiment too: steel cut oats are difficult to bake with [ they end up taking way too long to bake ], I would use rolled oats next time [ they're quicker ].

I whipped up this batch on a whim, and it was a success [ other than those pesky steel cut oats ]. Each cookie, if you portion the cookies out mindfully, turns out to be about 80 calories [ that does not mean to eat the whole batch in one sitting!!! ]. My slightly chubby Chihuahua was the ultimate taste tester and approved with a tail wag and long, low cry that begged for another lick.

Lauryn’s Wholesome Oatmeal Coconut Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

** Makes about 30 cookies

1 cup oat, gluten-free flour

1/2 cup of Earth Balance Light

1 cup organic sugar

1/4 organic, light brown sugar

1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cups rolled oats

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup of DARK chocolate chips

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoons soy milk (unsweetened)

1/2 organic lemon

1 brown egg

3 egg whites

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix up all dry ingredients [ besides oats, coconut & dark chocolate chips ]. Beat in unsweetened soymilk, eggs, Earth Balance light, lemon and vanilla. Add the oats, coconut & dark chocolate chips. Scoop with a spoon to make 1 inch by 1 inch rolled balls of dough. They should be the size of a poker chip or a silver dollar. Not too big, not too small.

Bake one cookie sheet at a time [ usually, they hold about 12 cookies each sheet ] for 10 to 12 minutes [ until they're brown around the edges ]. Remove from cookie sheet when they’re done and place on a plate to serve. Perfection!
