I have a HUGE sweet tooth and I need it filled from time to time. This weekend I had a few couples over for a dinner party which meant A. I wanted an amazing healthy dinner and B. I needed a good dessert.
My friends have come to expect a healthy full course meal when they are here for dinner so I didn’t want to let them down! For an appetizer I did the easiest thing ever… just got a couple of whole wheat wraps, put a thin layer of tomato sauce, swiss cheese, a few slices of tomato and bell pepper… toasted it all up at 350 degrees and Voila… slice it up and there ya go!
For dinner I went with a pork tenderloin, sweet potato chips and broccoli (yum) and for dessert…
Here’s My Clean Eating Cookie Recipe
I can’t take 100% credit for the recipe, I found a basic outline at Cathe Nation and changed it so I thought it would be better,
after all I can never follow a recipe to a T… I always have to Talorize it!
What you need:
- 1/4 cup all natural peanut butter (or hazelnut spread)
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1 egg white
- 3/4 tsp. vanilla
- 3 T. water
- 2 cups old fashioned oatmeal Quaker oatmeal (large flakes)
- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tbsp mini dark chocolate chips
What you do:
Mix all the wet ingredients in first… the first 5 ingredients above. Then incorporate the rest of the stuff in and mix until just blended (don’t mess up the oats). Oh yea, make sure you had the oven preheated at 350 degrees. Drop teaspoon mounds on a cookie sheet and bake for around 11-14 minutes.
These taste really good! If you need proof… they were all gone by the end of the night! Next time I make them I will make sure to take some pictures!
These oatmeal cookies are loaded with fiber, complex carbs, protein and healthy fats… A serving is 2 cookies! Each cookie has around 70 calories, 2 g of protein, 10 g of carbs. Not bad, sure beats eating a Tolls House Chocolate Chip!
Do you have a great healthy recipe? Give it up and share it with everyone… I am always looking for new ideas for my dinner parties!
