So as the days are getting shorter and the weather is getting colder my body is asking me for lots of comfort food, so I am trying to find ways to make that comfort food just a little bit healthier. I decided to do this with cookies, because who doesn’t like a cookie?
Now, while these are not going to be the epitome of health, but they don’t have any butter or dairy, they have wholemeal flour and they have very little sugar, which is also brown sugar. They also contain oats, which, let’s be honest, oats make everything healthy!
This is how I made them
These cookies are made with very little ingredients and are made in only 15 minutes.
All you need to make them is peanut butter, honey, brown sugar, oats, vanilla extract, egg, and chocolate. I used smooth almond butter to make them, but you can use chunky one if you’d prefer to!
The first step to make these is to mix the sugar, the honey, the vanilla and the egg until combined.
Then, add in the oats and the chocolate cut into chunks and mix with a spatula. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the cookies into a baking tray and (if you want) top them with another piece of chocolate and some pieces of almond. The cookies will feel very sticky.
Cook in a preheated oven at 170 degrees celsius for 10-12 minutes until golden on top. Let them cool down on the tray for a few minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack.

Hello… I made these cookies exactly according to the instructions (no substitutions in ingredients and followed the same method) but turned out very dry and bland… I am a baker myself and not able to figure out what went wrong… Can you please help
Hmmmm….. I am not 100% sure what could had gone wrong, temperature does vary depending on ovens, so may be that… I am planning on re-making these over the weekend as it’s quite an old recipe, so I’ll test it and let you know whether I’ve made any changes to it 🙂 Thank you for pointing it out as I’ll be paying special attention to the moist levels 🙂
