Best "Healthy" Cookies...

These are the MOST delicious "Healthy" cookies you will ever have. Ever. My sweet coworker Kelly baked me a batch as a form of payment for one of my baby posters. I knew I just had to share the recipe.

The Ultimate Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 stick butter (we use salted butter)
  • 3/4 cup raw honey (pick up at your local health food store, substitute regular honey if that is all you have)
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract (I advise against using imitation vanilla)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup whole grain rolled oats (I do not use quick oats, so I roughly chop these oats in my food processors before adding to other ingredients)
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. fine sea salt
Finishing touches
  • 12 oz. package of Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped craisins (a.k.a. dried cranberries)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Now just mix and bake them like a batch of normal chocolate chip cookies.  In a mixing bowl, combine all the wet ingredients (I partiallysoften the butter in the microwave, just be careful not to melt it too much).  Stir them together with a spoon.  In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  Now carefully stir in the dry ingredients in with the wet.  Now stir in the finishing touches.
Place cookies on baking sheet and bake at 350 for 10 – 14 minutes, depending on your oven and how well done you like your cookies.  Enjoy fresh out of the oven, or frozen then warmed in the microwave for 20 seconds.
Alternate/additional finishing touches (add whatever you have a taste for here and substitute it for the finishing touches above, here are some ideas for additional )
  • 2 mashed banana (If you use banana’s only use 1/2 cup of applesauce)
  • 1 cup shredded & toasted coconut
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies
  • 1/2 cup chopped raisins
**Remember…these cookies freeze well, can be eaten as a breakfast meal and are a great healthy treat for any time of day. Here is the link to the site where she got the recipe.
