How about a sweet treat to jumpstart your weekend?
Yes, please! I loved them! Not only were they incredibly delicious, but they were fairly healthy too. The only problem? They can be very pricey. So, I set out to make my own.
It was an overwhelming success! They may have even been the best cookies I’ve ever made. Luke kept repeating, “These are really really good.” I’ve been eating one (or two) a day.
I actually compared the nutritional value of my cookies to the Bear Naked ones, and they were almost identical. Bear Naked uses slightly less sugar, and I mean slightly as in barely noticeable.
If you’re a chocolate lover and want to indulge in a sweet treat you don’t have to feel guilty about, give these a try!
First, preheat your oven to 350. Mix the canola oil and yogurt together. Then add the sugar, vanilla and eggs and stir until well combined.
Mix the whole wheat flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, oats and chia seeds in a large bowl.
Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
Finally, mix in the chocolate chips.
Spoon the mixture onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.
Let them cool for 5 minutes.
