Happy Oatmeal Cookies

I call these happy instead of healthy because let’s just make those words synonymous from here on out, okay?

Once again, I tried to make Katie’s Fudge Babies and failed. Instead, I made these

They’re a mix of a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie and Katie’s Fudge Babies. I think they are healthy and delicious, and therefore, happy! They have dates instead of chocolate chips. Dates are an extreme source of antioxidants, so you should probably learn to love them! šŸ™‚

These are my new favorite cookies. No joke. Better than a regular chocolate chip cookie because I know these have a lot of goodness in them so I can many (many, many) and not feel bad! Love that!

Happy (healthy) Oatmeal Cookies [My Recipe]

  • 3 T melted butter
  • 3 T applesauce
  • 1/4 + 2 T Splenda brown sugar (or 3/4 C regular brown sugar)
  • 2/3 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/8 C ground flax
  • 3/4 t baking soda
  • dash salt
  • 1 1/2 C oats
  • 3 T liquid egg whites (or 1 large egg)
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 C of failedĀ Fudge BabiesĀ (mine are a crumbly mess and work PERFECT for this recipe!) OR 1 C chopped chocolate/chocolate chips
Do this: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine melted butter, applesauce and sugar. In separate bowl whisk together flour, flax, baking soda, salt and oats. Combine dry and wet ingredients, add egg whites and vanilla. Stir well and then stir in chocolate (whatever kind you decide; I of course think you should choose the Fudge Baby pieces because there are nuts and dates as well as cocoa = perfect and healthy!). Bake for 10-12 minutes.
