You know when you try to make something healthy and it turns out tasting “too healthy”? I can assure you these whole wheat oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are healthyish and delicious!
Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are one of my top favorites treats. I created this recipe because I wanted a soft, gooey delicious fiber packed snack. I like to get a least a little nutritional benefit out of my desserts and this one hits the spot. This healthy alternative cookie is by far the best whole wheat flour recipe I have ever made!
Whole Wheat Cookie Nutrition Info:
Oats: Oats contain some unique nutrients including the soluble fiber beta-glucan and antioxidants. Benefits of oats include lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protection against skin irritation and reduced constipation.
Whole wheat flour: is a rich source of fiber, vitamins, minerals and even a little bit of protein! The difference between white whole-wheat bread and regular whole-wheat bread is in the type of wheat used. White whole-wheat bread is made from white wheat, which lacks bran color. It also has a milder flavor and softer texture.
Applesauce: buy unsweetened, made from 100% fruit, great way to sweeten baked goods with some vitamin C!
