We all want that sweet treat occasionally – but without the guilt. And what’s better than biting into a warm chocolate cookie? Not much. So here’s a healthier versions of chocolate chip cookies using rolled oats, full of fibre and wholegrains, and canola oil and soy milk in place of butter and full-fat milk. The recipe also contains bananas for another level of tasty goodness.
1 cup oat flour
3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup plain soy milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 ripe banana, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup semisweet vegan chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 180° C. Combine first 6 ingredients (through sugar) in a bowl. Whisk together oil, soy milk, and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir to combine. Fold in banana, walnuts and chocolate chips.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop dough onto pan with a small ice-cream scoop. Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown, turning baking sheet halfway through. Let cool on a wire rack.
