I love bringing these cookies to parties or potlucks as a healthy dessert option. Plus, who doesn’t love s’mores? Since they are mostly carbohydrates, enjoy them after a meal high in protein with a little fat to keep your blood sugar stable.


Oatmeal flax s’mores cookies

Servings: 16 cookies

INGREDIENTS
  • 1.5 cups quick oats
  • 1/2 cup oat bran (or grind more oats into a flour consistency)
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp jet-puffed marshmallow bits
  • 3 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp water
METHOD
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Make flax eggs by combining ground flaxseed and water. Allow to sit for 5 minutes until a gel consistency is formed.
  3. In a medium bowl combine quick oats, oat bran, brown sugar, and baking powder.
  4. In a separate bowl combine applesauce, vanilla, and flax egg.
  5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until combined. Stir in marshmallow bits and chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  6. Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop batter onto a liberally greased cookie sheet until 16 cookies are formed. Bake for 10 minutes. *The cookies will look slightly under baked.*
  7. Remove from the oven, allow to cool on cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack until cookies are cooled completely.
