Craving Something Sweet? Try This Healthy Cookie Recipe

20 Apr 16  / Gina

Hello Sprint Kitchen readers! This is my first guest blog and what better way to introduce myself than with COOKIES!! I know I’m not the only one who has those annoying, sweet cravings late at night or straight after a meal and it’s so difficult to not give in. But fear not, there are options to help curb that craving, give these healthy oat cookies a go.

Ingredients

  • 100g oats
  • 90g wholemeal flour – I use one with added seeds
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tsp honey
  • 40g raisins or cocoa nibs if you’re feeling extra sweet!

Instructions

  1. Mix together the oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  2. Then in a separate bowl melt the coconut oil slightly so it starts to soften and mix in the vanilla extract then the egg, and lastly stirring in the honey.
  3. Next, combine both mixtures and gentle fold in the raisins or cocoa nibs.
  4. Chill the dough in the fridge for around 20-30 mins (insert quick HIIT workout here!).
  5. Then line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and form 12 or so cookie shapes and flatten slightly.
  6. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 150° and then… enjoy.
