We love cookies in this family.
Who doesn’t?? You must not have kids if you hate cookies. I mean… cookie dough itself is the delicious epitome of the baking kitchen.
Back to THESE cookies.
I try to be healthy, okay? Like occasionally eat kale in my salad and not die healthy 😉
(honestly good raw kale from local farmers can be super amazing…I know, it was a surprise to be too!)
Cutting white sugar down in our house is a constant goal- some weeks are better than others, but I’m finding if you just DON’T BUY IT, it sure makes it easier to not bake with it.
And then you find tasty substitutes, like honey or in this case, agave nectar.
I found THIS RECIPE on Pinterest and just substituted the agave nectar for the honey.
What you will need in your kitchen:
- 1 cup instant oats
- ¾ cup whole wheat or gluten-free* flour
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 large egg white, room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup homemade peanut butter
- ½ cup honey (or agave nectar)
- 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
- 1 ½ tbsp miniature chocolate chips
The kids LOVED it!!! I used the Lily’s brand mini chocolate chips, which are sweetened with stevia- so there’s not processed sugar in these.
Win win in my mommy book!!
