Here are a few tips with this recipe:
1. This recipe calls for oat flour which is such a great tool for healthy baked goods. But before you go run out to the store to buy it, realize that oat flour is just ground oats. If you have a high powered blender or food processor (I use this one) you can just buy regular oat meal and make your own oat flour super fast.
2. Being exact is extra important in this one, the right consistency and ratio of coconut oil really makes them work well. Make sure you are measuring your coconut oil in liquid form and then allow enough time for the dough to chill to turn it back into solid paste.
3. Substitute dark chocolate chips for milk chocolate chips to make them extra healthy!
4. Use a cookie scoop (like this one, try an ice cream scoop if you don’t have one on hand!) to avoid the oil in the dough melting with the warmth of your hands.
I have the recipe below in a “pin-able” and printable image simply because I rely on Pinterest heavily to keep my own recipes organized. Another tool we have been using to share recipes with each other besides our Pinterest board is this monogramed recipe binder that we keep in our kitchen. We are on a spending freeze before spring break which means no eating out for a whole two months 🙁 The binder is an easy way for us to keep new crockpot recipes that we both liked for future reference!
Happy healthy baking! Let me know if you try this, they are SO good! I have included some of the helpful tools I mentioned in the widget below 🙂
