I am on a recipe rampage and craving all sorts of things since competing in my fitness competition. I have not pigged out though but I feel like getting creative for my little guys school lunches and giving my family a little more variety in the food department. Hubby is always a trooper and eats all the greens and proteins I scoop onto his plate for dinner. So with a little more time on my hands, and some great recipes set aside, I am going on a CleanFitMom clean cooking spree!
But first, my kinda-clean cookie recipe I must share!
Healthy & Delicious Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
- 1/4 cup olive oil or coconut oil
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup oats
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or sans nuts to make these school friendly)
- 1/2 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips
In an electric mixer, beat together the oil, brown sugar, and egg until fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients and beat until well mixed. Use a medium (approximately 2 tablespoons in size) cookie scoop to place cookies on a cookie sheet. Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges.
Makes 24 cookies.
