These make a great snack. The cookies are large and kind of "poof" up and have a cake-y texture. They're also cholesterol free, refined-sugar free (I used all natural 100% maple syrup) and not overloaded with sugar in general, and they have about the same amount of calories as a Luna Bar. You get some fiber-y goodness from the oatmeal as well. I had a bunch of non-dieters in my house the night I made these who had 2am drunk munchies and they devoured the whole plate, so thus it gets the "non-health conscious" stamp of approval. Happy cookie eating!

Recipe Ingredients for As healthy as chocolate chip cookies can be

2 cups spelt flour
1 cup chocolate chips, dark
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
100 g barley malt (1/3 cup) or 1/3 cup brown rice syrup or 1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup applesauce
1/3 cup soymilk, Silk light vanilla
1 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for As healthy as chocolate chip cookies can be

  1. Mix flour, chocolate chips, oats, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Combine barley malt or brown rice syrup or maple syrup, applesauce, soymilk, and vanilla in another bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well until completely combined. Spray cookie sheets with non-stick spray. Put spoonfuls of cookie dough on the cookie sheets and flatten each slightly with your hand (this recipe makes rather large cookies - 3 to 4 inches in diameter) and making sure to leave enough space for the cookies to spread a bit.

  2. Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. The cookies should be just firm on the top (if they're really goo-ey leave them in a bit longer) and slightly golden on the bottom. Remove pans from oven and allow cookies to cool on pans for 15 minutes. Once slightly cooled, remove cookies with a spatula and place on a plate or wire rack to cool completely (or eat one while it's still warm). Enjoy!
