Flat and Chewy Honey Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Not the greatest pic, but I don’t have time to whip out my nice camera and take glorious photos of food.
Not at this stage in my life, anyway!

I’ve been on a quest to make cookies with less refined ingredients with additional power ingredients (like chia seeds) to make them somewhat healthier with a boost of nutrients…but hey, it’s a cookie! It’s supposed to be a treat 🙂

Here’s a recipe I’ve been tinkering with and I have a couple of good versions. This one creates a flat cookie that’s SUPER chewy. I actually haven’t tasted it yet (but neighbors and hubby loved them!), since I’ve doing a trial version of the Whole30 diet (no sugar, grains, dairy, etc.) but I’m probably only going to do a Whole15…HA! I’m still nursing, and I’d feel much better about eating less meat and overall just following my intuition when it comes to what foods I feel my body needs. Which, yes, includes a little bit of everything banned by the Whole30 diet.

Flat and Chewy Honey Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 C liquid coconut oil
3 T room temp butter (optional. Added for crisp)
1 egg
2 T ground chia seeds
1/2 C liquified honey
1 T vanilla
1 C coconut sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 C spelt flour
1/2 C rolled oats
1 C chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  1. Mix liquid ingredients together
  2. Add chia powder and mix well
  3. Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl, mix, then add to wet ingredients
  4. Mix all ingredients well and fold in chocolate chips
Bake for 15 minutes. Cool on pan for 2 minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely (they will be floppy unless cooled properly). Of course you can eat them warm, too!
