Sarah’s Good For You Chocolate Chip Cookies

My friend Sarah is one of those moms you look at and just say, “Wow, she’s got it together.” She has four young children who are sweet and polite, she doesn’t let them watch hardly any television, she actually manages date nights with her husband and looks gorgeous on them, and she exercises. She’s so awesome. And…she’s incorporating healthier eating too! Hurray! I was so excited to try out this chocolate chip cookie recipe she invented and, I have to say, it’s tastier than CCK’s chocolate chip cookie that I blogged here, and healthier too. My daughter loves these cookies, and I don’t mind giving them to her!

Sarah's Good For You Chocolate Chip Cookies
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 2 dozen
Ingredients
  • 1 + ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • ¼ cup ground flax seed
  • ½ cup dates
  • 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats (I used old-fashioned oats)
  • ¼ - ½ cup water
  • ⅔ cup vegan chocolate chips (more or less as desired)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Blend walnuts in a food processor until they are ground into a fine meal. Transfer to bowl.
  3. Blend dates with a few tablespoons of hot water to form a paste. Small chunks are okay.
  4. Combine ground walnuts, flax meal, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and oats in a bowl.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine coconut oil, date paste, molasses, and ¼ cup water.
  6. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until consistency is smooth, adding additional water if necessary. You don't want it to be so sticky that you can't form cookies, so don't add too much water.  Stir in chocolate chips.
  7. Form batter into cookies on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. The cookies don't change shape as they bake, so form into balls or flat cookies as desired. Enjoy with some almond milk!
