healthy dark chocolate chip cookies

This happens to be one of our favorite dark chocolate recipes because it puts a nutritious spin on a favorite: chocolate chip cookies. Once you give these babies a try, we bet you’ll want to make them a regular part of your entertaining regimen.

1 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup softened butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large omega-3 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and stir with a whisk.
Add oatmeal and stir until combined.
Cream butter and sugar until thoroughly mixed (about 2 minutes).
Add egg and beat well. Add vanilla and beat well.
Add flour mixture to sugar mixture and stir until just combined.
Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Drop spoonfuls of dough two inches apart on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
Flatten dough slightly.

Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Note: If you like a crispier cookie, use 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar and increase baking time to 15 minutes.
