• Oatmeal Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

    March 18, 2011

    Happy Cookie Friday!!! :mrgreen:

    Yesterday, I had a serious craving for chocolate chips cookies, so I whipped up a healthier version using rolled oats, almond butter, and liquid egg whites instead of white flour and an entire stick of butter. I realize that butter is key to delicious chocolate chip cookies, but I wanted something a little lighter this time. I mean, I’m trying to lose a few pounds, but I still want to enjoy cookies! These ones are soft and chewy, and practically as good as the original!

    These look great and include all ingredients I love! It’s even better that the recipe is portioned for 6 cookies. I’ll definitely try them out. Thanks!

    Just made these today and they’re completely delicious!! For some reason I don’t like almond butter spread on toast (even though I LOVE peanut butter), so I figured baking them would be a good way to use what I have. 6 cookies per batch is a very good thing, too, otherwise I know I’d be tempted to eat SO many :) Thanks for sharing!

    I made these cookies last night to satisfy a sweet tooth I had after dinner. They were fantastic and the healthy ingredients made the indulgence guilt-free. Thanks for sharing!

    So I made these cookies the first time and it tasted a little funny. I figured since I’m not the best cook/baker, maybe it was something I did. Next time I made them, same taste. Then when I went through my cabinet before grocery shopping this weekend, I noticed that the can that I SWORE said baking powder, was baking soda! I was using the wrong ingredient, lol. Made them again this weekend with baking POWDER and they are amazing!

    Can I use instant oatmeal instead of rolled oats?

    I think rolled would probably work better!
