$250 Cookie Recipe - Healthier Version

Ingredients
100g organic rolled oats (I like steel cut as they are less processed)
100g organic block of chocolate (I used Black & Greens 34% cocoa)
60g nuts (optional)
95g butter
160g rapadura
1 egg
tsp vanilla extract
180g organic white spelt flour
Pinch unrefined sea salt
tsp baking powder
tsp bicarbonate of soda
80g rapadura sweetened choc chips

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 180 and grease or line biscuit trays.

Blend oats in tmx to a fine powder (8 seconds, speed 8 ), set aside.

Grate chocolate block (broken up) in tmx (5 seconds, speed 8 ), set aside.

Chop nuts if you are adding them in tmx (3 seconds, speed 5 ) , set aside (can combine with grated chocolate).

Method:

Place butter and rapadura into bowl and cream (30 seconds, speed 5).

Add egg and vanilla extract and mix (6 seconds, speed 5).

Add flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, bicarb soda and mix (20 seconds, speed 5).

Add the choc chips, grated choc and nuts and mix on reverse speed 4 for 20 seconds or until well combined.  Push mixture onto blades with spatula if necessary.

Roll into balls (no need to flatten) and place 5cms apart on tray.  Bake for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!

Notes:

This version is slightly smaller in quantity.

You can make your own vanilla extract by soaking 12 slit vanilla pods in a bottle of brandy or vodka for a minimum of 6 weeks (shake occasionally).

You can make your own baking powder using the EDC recipe.  I use brown rice in the recipe with great results.

cathy79 - When I made these before Christmas, I missed the second lot of chocolate when reading the ingredients.  Still delicious!

Chelsea - I think these taste even nicer than the other ones.  They are a real treat.  I am going to cut the choc chips down even more next time (or even miss them out completely - thanks Cathy). Just remember that if you are using wheat flour to make this version you will need to use a bit less than the spelt flour.  Maybe 150g??

Pam H - Thanks for the recipe Chelsea, I made these for the Grandkids to have after school and they loved them took the rest home to share with their Dad.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
