Baking Chocolate Oat Cookies - Healthy Recipe

Me and my (now ex) boyfriend decided to make some Oat Cookies but a healthier version, gluten and sugar free.
We hadn't made them before but they turned out really good and tasted amazing :-) To know they are not as bad for you makes it even better so i definitely had to share this with you!

These are really quick and easy to make and we are baking some more this weekend as a treat to eating healthy all week :-)







Ingredients // and links to shop the products

  • Self Raising Flour (Gluten Free) - 50g // shop here
  • Oats - 75g // shop here
  • Total Sweet 100% Natural xylitol (replacing normal sugar)  - 75g // shop here
  • Chocolate/Caramel Protein Powder - 25g // shop here
  • Cinnamon - 1 Teaspoon // shop here
  • 85% Dark Chocolate (As darker is healthier) // shop here

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4 / 180 C 
  2. Mix up flour, oats, sugar, protein powder and cinnamon into a mixing bowl 
  3. Heat up the butter, oil, milk and honey in a saucepan 
  4. Once ingredients in the saucepan are heated through, add them into the pre-mixed dry ingredients and mix up well
  5. Shape into balls onto a baking tray and press down with the palm of your hand to make the round shapes, use a knife to press against and neaten the edges, should make 8 large biscuits
  6. Bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown
  7. Once out of the oven and cooled down, it is then optional to melt chocolate on top
  8. I just re made these cookies today (31st August 2016) and I used chocolate brownie protein powder instead. I made them a lot neater than I had in the pictures on here :) I would definitely recommend these as a heathy treat. I had two tonight with a cup of hot chocolate!



These biscuits are 195kcal each with 16g fat, 23g carbs and 5g Protein by replacing flour with more protein.

Let me know if you try these yourself and what you thought about them?
