Let’s talk oatmeal cookies!
Many cringe at the thought of an oatmeal cookie. However, I feel as though that’s from having underwhelming experiences with oatmeal cookies. Always keep in mind though, there is a bad version of everything out there. If an oatmeal cookie is done right, it’s one of those things you’ll find yourself craving!
My favorite part about an oatmeal cookie, is that it’s not only nostalgic, but filling, packs fiber, and you don’t even need white flour!
When thinking of the next best oatmeal cookie, I knew we had to do an espresso! I’m forever enamored with espresso flavored anything. Wondering how you’re going to have fresh espresso on hand? Don’t. All you need is the powder! I throw it in countless recipes and it not only adds a depth to the flavor, but enhances the chocolate flavor profile. If you don’t have any in your kitchen, nows your chance to get some espresso powder!
If you know me, you know I’m all about revamping childhood staples and putting a healthy spin on them. This version packs no white flour, less added sugar, peanut butter, no eggs, and all you need is a flax egg! The cookie holds together seamlessly with just a flax egg, has crisp edges, but still remains soft. Bonus, it features stevia sweetened chocolate chips, notes of cinnamon and rich notes of espresso!
These cookies are great for countless reasons. They are quick, easy, feature minimal ingredients, uses kitchen staples, have texture, pack fiber and protein, require only a flax egg, are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, the chocolate chips are sweetened with stevia, they have minimal oil and added sugar, have notes of cinnamon and salt, are perfect for any season, can easily be made in bulk, and rich notes of espresso!
