The girls love to make chocolate chip cookies from scratch. And being in a new kitchen in a new home, what better way to make it feel like home than fresh cookies? So when they asked (for the third time) “when can we make cookies?!”, I enthusiastically answered “now of course!”
So, now that most everything is unpacked, it was time for some baking.
But first a new cookie recipe, one with much less sugar.
It’s from My Whole Food Life Blog, she has some interesting recipes, I invite you to check out her blog.
1 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
1 T ground vanilla beans
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350
In a food processor, grind the rolled oats into a fine consistency (I used my VitaMix blender and it took less than a minute)
Combine all the dry ingredients
Mix all the wet ingredients in another bowl
Add the dry to the wet and stir until everything is combined
Fold in the chocolate chips. The batter will be on the wet side
Drop the cookies onto a lined baking sheet and bake for 10-13 minutes*
*My cookies were rather “fat” and took more like 20 minutes to bake – check yours and adjust time as needed.
