It’s ideal for when you are missing something sweet, but guilt-free.
I love this healthy cookie recipe as it’s sweetened just with applesauce ( which is homemade ) making it cheap and easy to source the ingredients. The oil in the recipe is absolutely optional, but I find it gives the cookies a lot more crispness!
This cookie recipe is great for children as it can be called a cookie and it tastes so good they don’t realize it’s actually healthy. A great filling on the go breakfast as it’s loaded with protein, fiber, nutrition, and complex unrefined carbohydrates that keep you filled.
There’s nothing wrong with carbs and sugar if like this they just come from whole food ingredients like oats, fruit, and nuts.
This is why nutritional information can be so damaging as not all calories, fats, etc are created equally.
The fats from avocado are a world apart from the chemically extracted GMO refined oils that a doughnut is fried in, but nutritional information doesn’t convey this. For more information have a look at our article: Fat And Carbohydrates Are Good For Losing Weight
A Few Important Tips To Make These Cookies:
I used my homemade applesauce. Which is 98% pure apples and 2% brown sugar. If you use shop-bought applesauce, they are normally loaded with sugar. So I highly recommend making your own. It’s super easy.
I also make my own oat flour, which is super easy as well. Simply blend rolled oats. For this specific recipe, I roughly ground the oats, to give my cookies a little extra texture and crunch.
I shaped small cookies instead of big ones. The reason for this is that they come out crispier. these cookies have got quite a bit of moisture in them, so to make them a bit crispier, I shaped them a bit smaller so that they cook through.
