It’s a grey Sunday afternoon – what could brighten things up? Why a chocolate chip cookie of course! But don’t settle for any old chocolate chip cookie, why not make one of our delicious, healthy chocolate chip cookies?
Our healthier chocolate is perfect for cooking with and can help make those naughty treats we all crave on a grey Sunday afternoon a little less naughty. We will be bringing you a range of healthier treat recipes using our revolutionary chocolate. Today we will start with some healthy chocolate chip cookies (ok definitely healthier, if not healthy). We’ve adapted a Jamie Oliver recipe which uses oats for added healthiness.
Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients (for approx. 15 cookies)
100g unrefined golden caster sugar
1 large egg
100g plain flour
25g porridge oats
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
100g Rebel Chocolate (roughly chopped)
Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Method
Allow the butter to come to room temperature to soften. If using a food processer, add all ingredients apart from the chocolate and whiz until smooth. Then stir in the chocolate chunks.
If you don’t have a food processor, mix the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon until you get a thick, creamy consistency. Beat your egg and then mix well with the butter and sugar. Sieve the flour into the mix and add oats, salt and baking powder. Mix until smooth and then stir through the chocolate chunks. Spoon the mixture onto a piece of clingfilm and roll into a sausage shape around 7cm in diameter. Put the cookie dough in the freezer for half an hour (this makes it easier to cut).
Baking your healthy chocolate chip cookies
Preheat your oven to 190ºC/375ºF/Gas 5. Cut your chilled dough into 1cm thick slices. Place onto non-stick baking trays leave space between each cookie as they will spread while cooking. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
