Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are a big hit in our family as they taste delicious but also have a lot of healthy ingredients like brown rice syrup, dark chocolate chunks, and whole wheat flour. So enjoy them without the guilt!


1 cup whole-wheat flour, spooned and leveled
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
1/2 cup oat flour, spooned and leveled
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup brown-rice syrup
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 T water
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
7 oz. bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup natural almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped


In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda , and salt.
In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, rice syrup, sugar, egg, water, and vanilla until completely blended. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients; fold in the chocolate and nuts.
Cover and refrigerate for at last one hour or as long as overnight.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto the baking sheets, spacing them 2 inces apart. Bake until light golden brown, 10 to 13 minutes, rotating the sheets halfway through.

Cool cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining dough.


  1. Oh, they look delicious! I wonder if I could "trick" my family if I don't tell them they're healthy. ;)

  2. I stopped by from Sweets for Saturday. These look great. Great chocolate chip cookies that are a little healthier. Nothing wrong with that.

  3. Try to trick them. let me know how it goers over!!
