Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies
My dad is OBSESSED with these cookies and now my siblings are too. These cookies cut down on the sugar and bump up the nutrition with 3 different kinds of flour. Here's how to make them.
- 3 cups of flour (1c regular flour, 1c almond flour, 1c oat flour)*
- 3/4 c of sugar (1/4c coconut palm sugar, 1/4c granular Swerve, 1/4c brown sugar)**
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup butterscotch chips (or sub milk chocolate chips)
- 6 tbsp butter, melted
- 6 tbsp oat milk (or sub regular milk)
Step 1 - In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add all the dry ingredients: flours, sugars, baking soda, salt. Turn on the mixer to combine dry ingredients.
Step 2 - Turn off the mixer, add the chocolate chips and turn the mixer back on.
Step 3 - With the mixer running, add the web ingredients (butter and milk). A ball of dough should gather in the mixer, if not, add a 1/2 tbsp of milk.
Step 4 - Chill the dough for about 2 hours.
Step 5 - Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out dough and use your hands to roll into a ball. Place cookie dough balls on a parchment lined cooking sheet.
Step 6 - Bake for 11 minutes at 325 degrees. After 11 minutes, take the cookies out of the oven and gently push down with a fork to flatten into cookies. Put back in the oven for 3 minutes.
Step 7 - Allow the cookies to cool for 5-10 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing them to cool further.
*If you do not have oat flour, you can make it by putting any kind of oats in a food processor or blender. Turn it on high and let it go until oats turn into a flour like consistency.
**If you do not have coconut palm sugar or Serve, you can sub regular granular sugar or more brown sugar.
