Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

healthy chocolate chip cookies recipeYou don’t normally see the words “healthy” and “chocolate chip cookies” in the same sentence. Cookies that aren’t loaded with butter and sugar are pretty rare. In this recipe, a few easy substitutions cuts down on the amount of sugar, fat, and calories. I subbed most of the white flour for whole wheat flour, so you also get some healthier carbs.

All in all, it’s a pretty darn tasty cookie that’s a heckuva lot healthier than most. So here’s my healthy chocolate chip cookies recipe …


Prep Time Cook Time Serves
25 min 10 min 30



  • 3/4 Cup White Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1/4 Cup White Flour
  • 1 Cup Oats
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 oz. Tofu
  • 1/4 Cup Butter with Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 5 Packets Splenda or Truvia
  • 1/8 Cup Applesauce
  • 4 oz. Chocolate Chips
  • 2 T Flax Seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla



Heat oven to 375 and grind up oats in a food processor or blender until you have a fine powder consistency. Mix together with whole wheat flour, white flour, baking soda and baking powder. In a separate bowl, mix butter and tofu and beat until desired consistency. Mix all sugar into bowl along with apple sauce and vanilla and beat again until consistent texture. Stir in flour mixture, flax seeds, salt, and chocolate chips and mix well. Spread into small balls onto a baking sheet (coated with olive or canola oil spray) and bake for about 10 minutes, or to desired level of brown.

Makes about 30 cookies.
