Healthy Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies

As I have been baking more during the pandemic, I made these cookies with Quaker Oat Flour. Canadians can serve up the wholesome goodness of 100% whole grain oats by simply adding it to their favourite recipes. A single serving of Quaker Oat Flour offers a source of fibre, contains no artificial flavours or colours and is non-GMO project verified.  Made in Canada, Quaker Oat Flour is now available in the baking aisle of local grocery stores from coast to coast.

How to make the best healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe that yields delicious soft and chewy cookies.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 9 minutes

Total Time: 19 minutes

Yield: 14 – 18 cookies

INGREDIENTS:

2/3 cup plus 1/2 cup oat flour (140g)

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

4 tbsp brown sugar

4 tbsp regular sugar

1/2 cup chocolate chips

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 tbsp vegetable oil

3-5 tbsp milk of choice, as needed

INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 380 degrees. Combine dry ingredients and mix very well. Add wet ingredients, and form into a big ball. Now make little balls from the big one.

For soft cookies, refrigerate until cold (otherwise, just bake right away). Bake 9 minutes. Remove from oven when they’re still a little undercooked, then it’s important to let cool 10 minutes before removing from the tray, as they’ll continue to cook while cooling. They should have spread out, but every now and then they might not (climate plays a huge role in baking), so just smush down with a spoon if needed. You can also choose to make extra cookie dough balls and freeze them to bake at a later date. For softer cookies, store in a lidded plastic container. For crispier cookies, store in a lidded glass container.
