Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


Adapted from The Healthy Chef

Ingredients:

1. 200 g (2 cups /7 oz) rolled oats
2. 100 g chopped strawberries (optional)
3. 60 g (2 oz) macadamia nut oil or olive old or butter (melted)
4. 60 g (2 oz) honey or maple syrup
5. 1 egg
6. 100 g (3 1/2 oz) block good quality dark eating chocolate 70% (see notes)

Directions:

1. Preheat your oven to 150 C / 300 F.

2. Add oats, olive oil or melted butter, maple syrup and egg into a mixing bowl and mix well.

3. Squeeze the dough with your hands for a few minutes until the cookie starts to come together.

4. Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes so the oats soften a little more and hold together.

5. Chop up the chocolate with a large knife.

6. Add chocolate and strawberries into the dough and mix through.

7. Form into balls and and flatten slightly.

8. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden, checking half-way through the cooking so as not to burn them.

9. Remove from the oven and cool completely.

Additional Information:

I tried this today 26 June 2016 (7Y3M21D), and J and my mum liked it. I substituted the coconut flakes with strawberries, as we have plucked a lot of strawberries, and we don't like coconut flakes

According to The healthy Chef, "Oats are a great source of soluble fibre that will keep you regular, lower cholesterol and fill you up for hours. According to studies, the beta-glucan fiber found in oats can help regulate your appetite for up to 4 hours as well as help lower cholesterol. I’ve also used macadamia nut oil in this recipe which gives it a lovely buttery flavour and is also heart healthy and anti-inflammatory to the body. Cocoa from dark chocolate is rich in Magnesium, iron, copper, manganese and riboflavin, essential micronutrients for health and vitality. The high flavenoid content of cocoa has been scientifically linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Cocoa also contain theobromine that boost endorphins and increases mental alertness."
