“You make such good cookies mom!”

That was what my 8-year old proclaimed after tasting one of my latest creations, a thin, crispy oat-chocolate cookie.

That’s great! Except for the fact that I am a nutritionist! Should I really be known for making good cookies?

Yes!

All Foods Fit

I am a nutritionist who loves food and believes that all food can fit. You can read more about my philosophy here. And while I do admit to a love for baking, I do my best to balance it out by cooking up a lot of other nourishing creations too—whether it’s pan-seared salmon, kale salad, or lentil soup.

These oat-chocolate chip cookies were adapted from my mother’s oat-raisin cookie recipe. Yes, leave it to me to swap the raisins out for chocolate chips! (Though the raisin version is also delicious!)

Oat-Chocolate Cookies

Makes: 36-40 cookies

1 heaping cup of oats
¾ cup flour
¾ cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 ½ sticks of organic butter, cut into pieces
½ cup chocolate chips (mini seem to work best, but any will do)

1.       Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.       Line 2-3 baking sheet with a Silpat mat or parchment paper.

3.       Combine oats through salt in a food processor.  Pulse 5-10 times, until oats are more finely ground. Add chocolate chips and process a little more (they will get chopped up quite a bit).

4.       Add butter and process until dough forms a ball. You may need to stop and push sides down with a spatula.

5.       Use a small spoon or your hands to scoop small balls onto baking sheets. Flatten with a fork.

6.       Bake for 10-14 minutes, or until crisp and golden.

7.       Allow them to cool for a few minutes and then transfer them to a cookie rack. Store in an air-tight container for a week.

Special Diets: If you are on a gluten-free diet you could use gluten-free oats and almond meal in place of the regular oats and flour. If you are vegan you could use coconut oil instead of butter and milk-free chocolate chips—it will no longer be the same cookie, but it will still be yummy!
