A spin on the traditional chocolate cookie!
Choc oat cookies (makes around 15)
If your a chocolate lover like us- then you will love these cookies! Remember nothing replaces a good old piece of fruit and a handfull of nuts as a nutritious snacks, but sometimes its nice to bend the rules and have a little something sweet! These cookies contain some unsaturated fats by using oil over butter, antioxidant rich dark chocolate and high fibre, low GI rolled oats instead of regular flour. Enjoy in moderation!
70ml oil (i used macadamia)
2 Tbsp brown sugar
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 Tbsp cacao
100g dark chocolate chopped up into small pieces (or dark choc bits if easier)
Preheat oven to 170 degrees celcius.
Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Beat oil and sugar until pale and creamy.
Add egg and beat until combined.
Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
Drop balls of mixture onto baking trays. Flatten slightly.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Eat and enjoy as a treat!
