For the start of the new year, I felt that it was time for a new cookie. With some of my favorite flavors and ingredients in mind, I constructed an oatmeal butter dark chocolate chip cookie which came out quite tastey. They look like your classic oatmeal cookie, however, they did not flatten out when baked. Either way, they are pretty delicious, and not to mention, you won't feel as guilty indulging in one of these babies! Enjoy!
Oatmeal Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
¼ cup I can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup dark brown sugar
2 egg whites
1 ½ tsp. butter and nut extract
1 cup flour
1 ¼ cup ground oatmeal
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. In a mixing bowl, combine butter, applesauce, and brown sugar. Beat until well combined. Add egg whites and extract and beat until combined. Combine flour, ground oats, baking soda, and cinnamon and add to creamed mixture. Stir until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
