I know we all like a little chocolate and this cookie is a quick healthy treat that satisfies your sweet tooth. They are even good with your morning coffee!
I made these cookies a couple of times. The first time they were quite tasty but they weren’t holding up well, so the second time around I added an egg white. This was just enough to keep the cookie in its form. I also decided to use my convectional toaster oven instead of turning on the real oven for such a small batch. The toaster oven was the perfect size for these cookies since they can all fit on one tray. This recipe doesn’t leave a ton of leftovers so double the recipe if you want more, make sure not to over bake them because they will dry out.
As an added bonus this cookie has NO white or wheat flour and you get healthy fats from the coconut oil and almond flour!
Almond flour oatmeal cookie
1/3 cup applesauce (non-sweetened)
1 heaping tablespoon Organic Virgin Coconut Oil melted
1 tablespoon egg white
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/4 cup almond meal
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips (you can also use raisins or cranberries)
