Rich Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

IMG_4938

I’ve been on a baking trend recently!! πŸ˜› I love using bananas and oats as the base of my cookie recipes. It’s simple, easy and healthy! Every time, I tweak the recipe a bit and add a little bit of that or that to see if I like it better πŸ™‚ always an experiment in the kitchen. It’s fun!

Yesterday,Β I woke up and had breakfast with my boyfriend. I got my basic egg white veggieΒ omelet with toast & fresh fruit. It’s one of my favorite kinds of breakfast because it’sΒ got my dose of healthy carbs, protein & fats. Breakfast is important! I never skip it πŸ™‚ After, I stopped by Trader Joes to buy some raisins. The ones I bought have no added sugars or added sulfur dioxide (a preservative). It’s only naturally sundried raisins!

I decided to make chocolate oatmeal raisin cookies before heading to soul cycle with some BBG girls! It took only 20 minutes from prep to finish!


Recipe Yields: 15 medium sized cookies

Ingredients:Β 

  • 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup whole oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 scoops Ground Based Nutrition Dark Chocolate protein powder (30 g)
  • 2 medium ripe bananas (we want that black spotting)
  • 1/4 cup raisins

Directions:Β 

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Line your baking tray with parchment paper
  3. In 1 bowl, mix together oat flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon & protein powder.
  4. When well incorporated, add in bananas and mash well. You can use your hands or a masher. Don’t go too crazy with the mixing because the more you mix, the less it rises andΒ bakes a flatΒ cookie. Be gentle!
  5. Slowly fold in the raisins
  6. Use a tbsp scooper and scoop batter onto parchment paper 1 inch apart.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes
  8. Let it cool at room temperature before eating or… eat it warm and fresh! It’s a bit soft when it first comes out hot but when you let it cool it’ll harden.

Store in room temperature in a airtight container. Eat within 2-3 days (or less if you’re me). I honestly like then when they’re cold right out the fridge πŸ™‚

  1. Hi!
    Oh my god I can’t believe that those HEALTHY cookies are SO delicious! I’m totally happy with the results! I added some of my favorite nuts instead of raisins and a big table spoon of vanille protein pulver mixed up with 20g pure chocolate pulver instead of 30g of the dark chocolate protein pulver- this is great too! You really have cool ideas! Thank you! No cheatmeal needed this week ^^ β™₯
    greetings from Germany!
