White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Well we are already on batch 3 of these cookies at our household! They are the perfect mix between a classic oatmeal cookie, with a twist because of the Maca Powder & white chocolate chips. I really do not know which ones are my favorite right now... my new Matcha cookies or these... honesty I think I will be switching off for weeks to come. I will not get tired of these!! SO this weekend grab ahold of these ingredients and make yourself a batch of these life changing cookies!
Side note: I know Maca & Matcha sound so similar, but they are VERY different, so this is not a typo :) You use Maca powder in these cookies. Maca powder provides so many great health benefits like its other M superfood-- Matcha, but it holds its own!
Maca Health Benefits:
- Improve mood-- has been associated with reducing anxiety
-Health gain muscle
-Improve learning & memory
Makes 12 large cookies or 18 smaller ones ( I go for the big ones!)
2 cups oat flour
4 tbsp coconut flour
4 tsp coconut sugar
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 tsp maca powder-- see below :)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup white chocolate chips
2/3 cup maple syrup
6 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment or use Silpat as normal
1. If you buy oat flour you can skip this step. I however use organic old fashioned rolled oats to make my own oat flour. We eat a lot of oatmeal, so we always have them lying around and it is cheaper to make your own and so easy! Place 1 cup of old fashioned oats in a high power blender and pulse for about 10 seconds and then put on low speed for 20 seconds. You want it to start to create a "powder" but still see pieces of oats as well. Then pour into a large mixing bowl. Repeat for the second cup of oats.
2, Now you will have 2 cups of oat flour in your large mixing bowl. Add in the rest of the dry ingredients except for the white chocolate chips (coconut flour, coconut sugar, salt, baking soda, maca powder, salt, cinnamon)
3. In a medium microwaveable bowl. Add in the 6 tbsp of coconut oil and heat in the microwave until melted. Then let cool for a couple minutes. Add in eggs, maple syrup & vanilla & whisk together. Pour into the large dry ingredients bowl and mix throughly until well combined. Then add in the white chocolate chips and fold those in well.
4. Divide batter into 12 large cookies or 18 small ones on the baking sheet of your choice. Either lined with parchment or use my favorite Silpat. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Check at 10 minutes, use a spatula to see if the bottoms are brown. They maybe a little stuck and that's okay, but they will be done if the bottom is brown. All 3 times 10 minutes has been just perfect in our oven, but every oven can be different so just pay close attention at that point.
SERIOUSLY ENJOY THESE PERFECT THINGS!!
