Did someone say cookies? Yes please! I have always been a cookie person. Especially the ones with chocolate. Since I started to create a healthy and gluten-free lifestyle, I tried to find a solution for my cookie addiction in a healthy way. A lot of gluten-free products contain lots of added sugars, so I tried to find a way to make a gluten-free cookie as healthy as possible. Last but not least I tried to create a chocolate chip cookie with good nutritions for breakfast.
It is really important to eat enough fiber for a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately a gluten-free lifestyle can be low in fiber. Starting my day with this little piece of heaven makes that a lot easier. I got the idea of this simple oatmeal cookie from my colleague Maurice. Unfortunately his oatmeal cookie was not made of gluten-free oats, but that did not stop me to create my own at home. It was love at first sight. Thank you Maurice for making me an oatmeal cookie junkie.
For my oatmeal cookies I used oats with cacao nibs. As you can imagine it was the best combination ever. It tastes just like a chocolate chip cookie and the oatmeal makes it very crunchy. (Maybe you have noticed that I use the word ‘crunchy’ a lot in my recipes, that is probably because I am a crunchy kind of person). Do you want more chocolate? Just add a teaspoon of chocolate spread in the middle of the oatmeal. Be careful, because once you try this at home you will get addicted.
This oatmeal cookie is delicious with fresh fruit and yoghurt or just as a little snack next to your smoothie or coffee.
For peanut butter junkies: add a dot peanut butter on your warm oatmeal cookie and it will be even more chewy and sticky.
Let me know what you think!
