My favorite kind of cooking and baking is experimenting (and simplicity). This cookie recipe is super simple and can be made into any type of cookie you want—just use the first three-ingredients as your base dough and experiment away! And as an added gut and hormone health bonus, it contains 2.4 grams of fiber per cookie!
1 ¼ cups rolled oats or 1 cup oat flour (gluten-free if needed)
¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
Pinch sea salt
2 Tbsp chocolate chips
Optional add-ins: chopped dates or figs, walnuts, unsweetened raisins, prunes, or dried cherries, peanuts, etc.
Pre-heat oven to 350° and line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
While oven is heating, place oat flour in mixing bowl (or blend 1 ¼ cups rolled oats into flour) with applesauce and sea salt, and combine well. Allow the mix to sit for 5-10 minutes to allow the flour to absorb the moisture of the applesauce.
Then, stir in chocolate chips and any additional add-ins you’d like (we added a few more tablespoons of rolled oats to make chocolate chip oatmeal cookies).
Roll dough into balls and place on the parchment-lined cookie sheet (this dough will be a bit more moist). Bake for 10-12 minutes and enjoy!
Servings: 8 cookies
