Chocolate Oatmeal Chunk Cookies

So, for those of you who haven't heard, my family is going natural/clean.  Not STRICT, prefectionist clean, but we are going to be eating a lot more whole grains, and a lot less processed sugar, refined grains, and additives.

So, I'm learning some new recipes.  Here is my fifth attempt at a FAIRLY clean recipe. Next time, I might try replacing the brown sugar substitute with honey, but I'm worried it will affect the consistency.  These were kind of bitter sweet, but they are the first clean eating cookies to actually make my blog, SO there's been progress.

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar zero calorie substitute
  • 2 tbsp stevia (granulated)
  • 2 tbsp. margarine room temp
  • 2 tbsp. no-sugar-added applesauce
  • 2 tbsp. Egg Beaters (or 1 egg white)
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, thoroughly whisk brown sugar substitute, Stevia, margarine, applesauce, egg substitute, and vanilla extract.
  3. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt, and stir until smooth. Fold in oats, chocolate chips, and chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon batter onto the sheet in 6 evenly spaced mounds. Use the back of a spoon to spread and flatten into 3-inch circles.
  5. Bake 10 mins.
