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!

  1. These look great! I love that they only make six. Smetimes I just want a few cookies not 2 dozen. Could these count more as a healthy snack than a cookie since they only have 2 tablespoons so sugar? I think yes.

  3. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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!
