Back in my single cat lady days I loved making desserts for one. While I loved to bake I hated having 2-3 dozen cookies sitting in my kitchen, taunting me. These healthy chocolate oatmeal cookies are perfect for when you want something sweet, but don't want to make a whole batch of cookies. I've always loved oatmeal cookies and my recipe for healthy peanut butter oatmeal cookies is one of my most popular posts so I tweaked it a bit to make these healthy chocolate oatmeal cookies. I hate it when you find a great recipe for healthy desserts but they are filled with crazy ingredients that are either super expensive or not even available in your area. These healthy chocolate oatmeal cookies can be made with things most people have on hand, and the PB2 can be found in almost all grocery stores (and Amazon!)
- 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
- 2 T. PB2 (Chocolate PB2 if you have it)
- 1/2 T. cocoa powder if using regular PB2
- 2-3 packets of stevia
- 1/8 tsp. baking powder
- 2 T. egg whites
- 1 T. apple sauce
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 2 T. water
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit
- Combine first 5 ingredients (dry) in a bowl. Mix well.
- Add in the rest of the ingredients.
- Drop heaping spoonfuls onto a baking pan lined with parchment paper
- Bake for 15 minutes
- Eat your face off
I added too much cocoa powder on accident so these cookies might look considerably darker than yours. The cookies have a crunchy exterior, and soft chewy inside. They aren't too sweet, and not as rich as regular cookies since they are super low fat. The macros for the entire batch of 5 cookies are:
- 38 grams of carbs
- 5 grams of fat
- 15 grams of protein!
- 225 calories
