Soft, Sugar-free Chocolate-Chip Cookies

You know those chocolate-chip cookies in the stores that wink at you and can’t wait to be eaten? You also know that “temptation” is not always healthy but still…you want that chocolate-chip cookie so badly. I have a solution: my own chocolate-chip cookie recipe. It’s healthy, sugar-free (it does not contain refined sugars) but sweet, delicious and bound to satisfy your taste buds.

This is the time to let go of those desserts that only make you fat and unhealthy. Make your own food, your own mouth-watering desserts. Enjoy a new, fresh, and healthy experience.

The following chocolate-chip cookies recipe will bring out all taste varieties involved. You can either use chunks of chocolate (choose a sugar-free variant) or use homemade carob powder candy.
They are slightly salty but this will only add to the sweetness and flavor of the cookies.
Serve with milk and have them for breakfast or as a snack. Choose vegetal milk if you are lactose intolerant.

Servings: 12
Preparation time: 40 minute

Ingredients:
1 cup oat flakes
¾ cup whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon and a half baking powder
1 teaspoon and a half cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons melted but cool butter (replace with coconut oil if you want or need to)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3-4 tablespoons honey (maple syrup)
chocolate chips (about 1-2 tablespoons or more)

Instructions:
Mix the dry ingredients (oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt) and the wet ingredients (butter, egg, vanilla, honey).
Bring them all together and mix well but not too hard. Add the chocolate chips.
Put the mix and wrap in foil. Let sit in the freezer for 15 minutes or in the fridge 30 minutes.
Now that the mix has slightly hardened, you can start making the cookies.
Put them in a tray on a baking sheet.
Bake for 12-13 minutes in a preheated oven at 170 degrees C, until their sides become brown.
Once out of the oven, add some more chocolate chips on top.
Let cool for a few minutes and serve.
