Healthy cookies - is there such a thing? That's debatable. But with that said, these are pretty healthy. It's not exactly love at first bite, but they grow on you. I really liked them and didn't feel so blah after eating 3 at a time. They are a fun, healthy snack and would be great for after school. I got the recipe from Trainer Momma.
1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
1/2 cup honey
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cup rolled oats
2 cups chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together. Spoon onto cookie sheets sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
Other mix-in options: raisins, craisins, flax seed, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, walnuts, anything really.
This batch made 53 cookies. That makes it 88 calories each.
