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

Directions:

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.

ENJOY!
