Do you know what I’m thinking about right now? Yep, that’s right — ooey, gooey, chocolate chip cookies! Or maybe soft, warm, peanut butter cookies — the kind with peanuts AND chocolate chips.
I’m trying hard to forgo sugary treats, especially ooey, gooey chocolate chip cookies — I can never have just one!
Luckily, when I checked my cupboards, I was missing a few key ingredients: chocolate chips, flour, peanut pieces … so, there will be no cookies tonight. Sad…
This is my favourite recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’re even healthy, if you can believe that. Whaaat??!! Maybe I will bake these tomorrow. *Drool*
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
5 tablespoons dark brown sugar (or sweetener of your choice)
5 tsp coconut oil (melted and slightly cooled)
1 1/2 cups oat flour (I make my own by grinding regular oats in a food processor)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of sea salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or peanut butter chips if you’re feeling zany.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the vanilla extract, egg, and brown sugar in a bowl. Add the coconut oil and beat everything together until just combined.
Stir in the oat flour, baking soda, and salt.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Chill the dough for at least one hour.
Scoop out tightly packed balls of cookie dough onto a cookie sheet.
Bake until lightly browned around the edges, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack.
Makes about 20 to 30 cookies depending on the size of your cookie scoop.
