Chocolate-Chip Cakies, Cleaned up!

“These chocolaty drop cookies have an old-fashioned, cake-like texture and rich flavor, but their nutritional profile is positively modern.” – Barbara K McConnell

Drop cookies - Faith Keith

Ingredients

2 cups oat flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Truvia
2 tablespoons molasses
1/4 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup egg whites
3/4 cup Greek, Non-Fat, Plain Yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Even cleaner:

2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Truvia
2 tablespoons molasses
5 tablespoons peanut butter
3/4 cup egg whites
3/4 cup Greek, Non-Fat, Plain Yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Arrange the oven racks to divide into thirds; preheat the oven to 375°F
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oat flour/oats cocoa, baking soda and salt
  3. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer at high speed, beat the stevia, molasses, coconut oil/PB and egg whites until light and fluffy.  With the mixer at low speed, gradually add the flour mixture, the yogurt, vanilla and chocolate chips; stir until just combined (do not overmix)
  4. Drop the dough by tablespoons onto 2 ungreased baking sheets, making 24 cookies.  Bake until firm, about 10 minutes. Cool completely on a rack; store in an air-tight container for 3-4 days (if they last that long :))

MY PERSONAL COMMENT:
I use Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips and I think it makes a big difference, but I’m a chocolate lover so I may just be picky.
Make these smaller to make a batch of 36 cookies so you can munch “1 serving” a little longer ^_^
