Healthier ingredient swaps

These cookies use some unconventional baking ingredients to make them healthier and filled with more nutrients than traditional cookies.

  • Swapped white flour for oat flour and oats: Oats and oat flour have more fiber than refined white flour. Oats are also a good source of many vitamins and minerals.
  • Swapped butter for almond butter: Instead of butter, which is mostly saturated fat, we use heart-healthy almond butter as the fat source in these cookies. Almond butter contains monounsaturated fat, protein, a little fiber, and some minerals.
  • Swapped flax “egg” for eggs: To make these almond butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies vegan, we made flax eggs to replace regular eggs. To make a flax egg, simply stir together 1 tbsp flax meal with 3 tbsp warm water and let it sit to turn into a gel for about 5 minutes.
