Healthy Cookie Recipe

By | Nutrition, Uncategorized

Ashton, one of my Fit Fun Bootcamper instructors, brought some cookies in for everyone to eat as a treat for a hard workout.  She promised me they were healthy, so I let her give them out.  🙂  Besides them being healthy, she made them insanely small.  One cookie ball could have fit inside of my cheek.  Here is your cookie recipe.

All Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 C All-Purpose Flour

1.5 C Whole Wheat Flour

1 tsp baking soda

¼ tsp. salt

¾ C. butter, softened

½ C granulated sugar

½ C firmly packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 tbsp of ground flax mixed in 3 tbsp of water

1 tsp vanilla

¼ C hot water

¾ C All-Bran

1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips


Stir together flour, soda, and salt. Set aside.

Beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg, flax and vanilla. Beat well. Mix in hot water. Add All-Bran, flour mixture and chocolate chips. Mix until combined. Drop by rounded ½ tablespoons onto baking sheets.

Bake at 375 for 9-15 minutes (shorter time if you are using dark pans, longer with lighter) or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheets and cool.


Makes about 70 cookies

Hi, this is Katy a contributor to the blog.  Sure I can cook a decent meal, but what I really love to do in the kitchen is bake!  I think this comes from when I was a little kid and mom used to let me help and then lick the beaters.  So started my obsession with baked goods, especially cookies!  When I started dieting, I stopped baking.  This was so hard for me!  When I reached my goal size, I went on a mission to find a “decent” chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I think I have it!  They taste good and the kids can’t tell they’re any different from what I used to make.  Of course, I advise you to only eat one, not four like my former self would have!
