Umm.. YUM. Seriously, what is be better than a warm, gooey, homemade oatmeal cookie? I don’t know if there’s anything better – except for maybe when the recipe is a clean one!
No butter. No oil. YES.
Obviously, this is a cookie so should be consumed as a treat. Just because it’s clean doesn’t mean it’s a diet food!
These cookies, though…they will be hard to resist. So good my husband took one bite of one and said “you have to take these to work with you tomorrow or they’ll be gone when you get home”. I guess that’s a good sign 😉
These are pretty basic. You really can’t mess them up. Also, I put chocolate chips and walnuts in mine but you really could put whatever you wanted in here. I thought about doing pistachios, but decided to just go more basic. And…yum.
- Dry ingredients:
- 1 cup of oats
- 3/4 cup of almond flour or oat flour
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
- Wet ingredients:
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 cup of almond butter (any or any kind of nut butter)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Any “mix-ins”you desire – chocolate chips, walnuts, pecans, dried fruit…etc!
- Preheat oven to 365 degrees and prepare parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Set aside.
- Mix all dry ingredients together (minus the mix-ins) and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, mix together all wet ingredients until well combined & almond butter is no longer chunky.
- While stirring, add the wet mixture to the dry. Combine well.
- Stir in mix-ins!
- Scoop large balls of dough onto the parchment paper and bake for 12-15 minutes, until you start to notice the cookies becoming golden brown.
