Okay, I haven’t posted in a little while so I bring you a peace offering in the shape of a cookie. But not just any cookie. This is a cookie you can whip up in 5 minutes, less if you don’t cook it, which is totally acceptable and basically eating raw cookie dough (minus the raw egg). And you don’t have to share.
Now, let me tell you why this is healthy. First, you’re going to swap butter for coconut oil (bonus points if you use organic). Second, you’re going to use whole wheat flour instead of white flour. And if you’re following a vegan diet you can use vegan chocolate chip. I’m giving you options, man.
Healthy Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie
Makes one deep-dish cookie (Adapted from Love From The Oven)
1.5 tbsp organic extra virgin coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/8 tbsp vanilla
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
Chocolate chips to taste
Melt the oil in a small bowl, add the sugars and vanilla and stir. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and chocolate chips. Mix everything until it’s well incorporated. You can pretty much just, ahem, eat it at this point. I mean, why not? Or you can put the dough into a ramekin and cook in the microwave for 30 seconds.
