Here is a recipe that I took in a French book for healthy recipes. This one is made with cocoa, so less calories. Only 56 calories per cookie (that's what is written in the book)
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 2⁄3 cup all-purpose flour
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 1⁄3 cup cocoa powder, sifted
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 egg whites
- 1⁄3 cup corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup Rice Krispies
- In a big bowl, mix rolled oats, flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Stir well.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the egg whites, corn syrup and vanilla.
- Add the mixture of egg whites to the mixture in the big bowl and mix. The dough should be very dense. Incorporate the rice crispies.
- Let drop the dough to the spoon on a non-stick baking sheet (or you can put some oil on the baking sheet).
- Cook in a preheated oven of 350 F for 9 to 11 minutes.
This is a decent cookie for a low fat no-butter version and I am rating it as such. The dough really is very dense and I found it somewhat difficult to mix it up without using my hands, then ended up for dough enough for 2 cookies stuck to my hands. 9 minutes was good for my oven. Made for Holiday tag.
These are great for being low-cal and fat-free, and I'm rating them as such. The texture and decadence isn't what you get from a full fat, high-cal cookie and I didn't expect it. These are just a really nice treat to have when you want to have a healthier sweet snack. 9 minutes was perfect for mine. Thanks!
Took these to the DS's adult recreation music group and they were enjoyed. I got 25 from the mix and they baked at 170C fan forced oven for 12 minutes. The DD tried one not long after they had cooled down and said it was nice and crunchy with a chewy centre, very nice. Thank you Boomette, made for Adopt A Tag.
