Ingredients for Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  • plain/all-purpose flour
  • porridge oats
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • coconut oil
  • coconut sugar
  • large egg
  • vanilla extract
  • dark chocolate chips

To make these cookies healthier, I used coconut oil instead of butter, coconut sugar instead of regular white or brown sugar, and dark chocolate chips. I’ve also added in 1 cup of quick oats, for extra healthy chewy deliciousness!
