Chocolate chip cookies are probably the most adored and beloved treats of many of us! Everything about them is amazing except their high sugar and fat content. Fortunately, I have invented a recipe that doesn’t use white sugar at all and still gives them a delicious flavor and rich taste. Are you ready for it?
Before I begin I would like to point out that the entire dough preparation takes about 7 minutes. No cooking, pre-baking and any sort of preparation is required! Really fast, convenient and most importantly – healthy.
List of ingredients:
– 200 grams of oatmeal
– 1 banana
– 1/4 of a chocolate bar (any kind of chocolate you like)
– 1 table-spoon of cinnamon
– 1 table-spoon of liquor or rum
– 1 egg
– 1 table-spoon of melted butter
– 2 table-spoons of crushed nuts (optional)
– 15 grams of baking powder
– 1 table-spoon of raisins (optional)
Preparation: Crush your chocolate in smaller chunks and mix all ingredients together. You should have a nice, smooth and homogeneous mass. Take a baking tray and spread a thin layer of melted butter on it. Portion your dough according to the cookie size you would like to have, and lay it gently on the baking tray. Take care that your cookies will grow and spread a little in the oven so make sure you place them far enough from each other on the baking tray. Pre-hit the oven to 170 degrees Celsius and place them there for 13 minutes until they get golden-brown shades.
Tasting profile: Amazingly, but these cookies are very sweet without any sugar. This is one of those recipes that doesn’t reveal the sugar absence at all, especially if you are using raisins and chocolate chunks. Besides the naturally sweet taste, they are rich in flavor and softer in texture. The combination of nuts, chocolate and oatmeal is both healthy and delicious.
Calorie content: The most important benefit of this recipe is not only the absence of sugar, but also the absence of flour. These two components usually add about 200 calories extra to each dessert. This recipe yields about 8 cookies, each having about 120 calories. A normal chocolate chip cookie of this size, American style, has about 180 calories.
Enjoy your healthy, low-calorie cookies with pleasure!
