Double Chocolate Oat Cookie

Many of you know I have a love of sweets. I think if I had to choose something to eat everyday for the rest of my life it would be something sweet. Especially after dinner! Yummy! But since I have limited the amount of sugar I eat, I try to come up with some alternative to satisfy my sweet tooth!

Double Chocolate Oat Cookie

Ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 egg whites
2 tbsp greek yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoon mini chocolate chips

Double Chocolate Oat Cookie

Directions:

Combine all dry ingredients, then add wet and stir until mixed. Then add in chocolate chips. Using a tablespoon, place a heaping amount onto a baking sheet. Bake at 350* for 12-14 minutes.

Here is the MACRO breakdown: Serving size: 12 cookies

About Lisa Lamb

This is a way for me to share my passion for living a healthy lifestyle, share my fitness journey and to create low calorie recipes for us and my daughter Makenna who has Prader-Willi Syndrome! Description My daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome which in a nutshell, (but please feel free to google for more information) will cause a chronic feeling of hunger that, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. The food compulsion makes for constant supervision necessary. This page is dedicated to her. She inspires me everyday to live a happy, healthy and active lifestyle. I want to create a healthy environment for her. With my passion for nutrition and fitness, I hope I can spread awareness about PWS and create healthy recipes for her to enjoy with never feeling deprived. She has given me new hope to move forward with my passion in nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. My focus will be on childhood obesity, emphasizing in PWS. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all! ***Please note I am not a Registered Dietitian. I would classify myself as a "nutrition snob." I do all of this because I love learning about food and fitness. All the recipes posted are tired and can be adjusted to your lifestyle. ***
