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. Are the measurements on the brown sugar correct? It’s listed twice. I just want to be sure because i am SO MAKING THESE!!!!

  2. if I don’t have liquid egg white I can just use flour? is that right? (i now have my heart set on making this today!)

  3. I will be making these later today due to the boredom of writing a paper. These cookies should sweeten up the day for me! Thanks, Tina!

  4. I love this recipe!

    Not only do the cookies look amazing but the recipe is only for 6 cookies! I always make dessert recipes that will feed an army and uh let’s just say, my arse really doesn’t need that much! A lot of it ends up going to waste unless I bring it to work. Now everyone at work is on a health kick so I might try these out! Thanks~

  5. Oh yum!!! Yay for having cookies while you are losing weight. (I do the same, and made some ginger cookies with prune puree in place of the fat….sounds gross, but they’re DELICOUS!!!)

  6. I’ve made a gluten-free version of these, I never thought of adding oats to the recipe, duh. I will try that and add raisins to make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

  7. Yay! I was planning on making oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to take on a camping trip this weekend and now I have a “lighter” version that I can try. However, I might need to make a double or triple recipe to feed my hungry campers. Thanks!

  9. Oh, my, these look fantabulous, Tina!! They’re going on my cookie list. 🙂 I LOVE almonds–much prefer those in choco-chip cookies to walnuts (which tend to make my tongue itch!). Yum.

  10. Holy yum. It’s really great that this only makes 6 cookies . . . although I’m fairly certain that when I make them, I will eat all 6! What can I say, that’s how I do! 😉
