Killer Healthy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are the best cookies I’ve ever tasted. They could win a cookie contest any day! These bad (I should say GOOD) boys are dairy free, made with WHOLE grains of wheat flour and oats, with no butter, margarine, shortening or other artery-clogging crap!

3/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 eggs (or 2 Tbsp ground flax + 5 Tbsp water)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar (not packed)
2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup applesauce

Cream all above ingredients together, then add:

1 cup cocoa powder (loose, not packed)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Add last and don’t over-mix:
3/4 cup whole wheat flour (I grind our own soft white wheat, is similar to whole wheat pastry flour)
3/4 cup rolled oats
2 cups chocolate chips (use dairy-free chips if you prefer)

Put high quality parchment paper on your cookie sheet, it makes it so your cookies don’t burn to the bottom and stay nice and soft on the inside. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. I hope you love this recipe as much as we did! I was surprised at how you can’t taste a coconut flavor in these, and the peanut butter was super subtle but went perfectly with the chocolate. I used to make this same recipe with butter/shortening and we thought they were amazing, but these blow those out of the water! We’ll be using this recipe from now on.
