Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
These yummy cookies from my Healthy Baking Cookbook are full of all things wholesome and nourishing. What I love about this recipe is that it’s very therapeutic to make and I adore slowly mixing the oat filled dough with my hands.
Baking cookies and cakes is fun and it’s a great way to de-stress and relax, put on some French music and have fun.
These simple cookies will be a definite crowd pleaser and also make the perfect edible Christmas gift!
What’s great about them
Oats are a great source of soluble fibre that will keep you regular and fill you up for hours. I’ve also used macadamia nut oil in this recipe which gives it a lovely buttery flavour and is also heart healthy and anti-inflammatory to the body. Cocoa from dark chocolate is rich in Magnesium, iron, copper, manganese and riboflavin, essential micronutrients for health and vitality.
The high flavonoid content of cocoa has been scientifically linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Cocoa also contains theobromine that boosts endorphins and increases mental alertness.
