I don’t usually post on Tuesdays, but I wanted to get this recipe up today. Late last week I was wanting to do some baking so I could use up some of the food I have here in Germany that I know Matthias probably won’t eat. From that baking experiment, this recipe came to be!
I have to apologize before the recipe because I only have one picture of the cookies, but nonetheless I hope you give these a try! They aren’t very sweet; however, they still taste delicious. If you make them, I would love to know how they turned out!
Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Ingredients for 11 cookies:
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp rolled oats (100g)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour (28g)
- 1/2 cup egg whites (130g)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted (52g)
- 2 rounded tbsp sugar (30g)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (55g)
- 1 tsp baking powder (4g)
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla (7g)
- 1 tsp chia seeds (4g)
- 1/4 cup rounded dark chocolate (50g) + extra for drizzle
- Preheat oven to 375F (190C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix the oats, flour, egg whites, and melted coconut oil.
- Add sugar, applesauce, baking powder, vanilla, and chia seeds.
- Mix until everything is combined.
- Fold in chocolate (mine was in a bar so I chopped it before adding, but if you’re using chips you can ignore the chopping.)
- Roll dough into 11 balls, placing them on the baking sheet.
- The dough doesn’t spread so make sure to flatten a little bit.
- Bake for 10-14 (mine took 12) minutes. You want them to be a little golden.
- Leave on tray to cool (if you try to move them to quickly, they can fall apart.)
- For the drizzle, melt your chocolate (I did mine in the microwave so I added some coconut oil to it) then using a spoon, drizzle away!
And there you have it! These cookies are simple to make and are a little less sweet than most cookies. They received a stamp of approval from my boyfriend so I say that’s a plus!
Let me know if you give these a try!
