If butter and coconut oil are on your healthy ingredients list, these are the best healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Much like my fluffy whole wheat biscuits, these whole wheat chocolate chip cookies will surprise you with their chewy texture and no one in your family will have a clue that they’re made with healthy ingredients. What I love about these cookies… They’re made with local honey, organic coconut sugar, real butter and coconut oil. Ah yes, and whole wheat flour and milled flax seed. I let my kids eat a couple for dessert after a good meal and I don’t have to feel bad about giving them a bunch of empty sweet calories. Looking for a fall treat? Try these Healthy Oatmeal Cookies I make with pumpkin, applesauce and raisins. They’re amazing! Without further ado, our favorite cookie recipe!
Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chewy and soft, and secretly good for you. Well, except for the chocolate and that’s debatable. ;-)
- 1/4 cup room temperature butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup organic coconut sugar
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (I use Montana Wheat’s white wheat)
- 1 cup quick rolled oats
- 1/4 cup milled flax seed
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Scoop and drop tablespoon fulls onto un-greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes or until the cookies take on a light golden color near the edges.
- Remove to a clean dishtowel or cooling rack immediately. Let cool. Enjoy!
Boy, those didn’t last long!
