EatingWell reader Beverley Sharpe of California contributed this recipe. She updated a favorite treat by cutting back on sugar and incorporating whole grains. To increase protein, she replaces the rolled oats with 1 cup almond meal.
Simple recipe with a small list of ingredients. Note the cooking time listed (15 minutes) was too long. Mine were done in 10-12 minutes. Made about 30 cookies.
These cookies have a great flavor and the dough came together beautifully. And they were even husband approved! Noted baking time is a little long. Mine were done around 12-13 minutes. I will be making these cookies again!
As they were baking, we noticed that they didn't spread out. We knew before taking our first bite, that these were not going to be the traditional chocolate chip cookie. These ARE delicious. However they look like little mounds, not like a chocolate chip cookie. We did add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts to the recipe to up the protein. The next time we make these, we are going to try flattening them out.
