Servings: 20 cookies
- ¾ cup Chosen Foods Avocado Oil
- Spiced Chai Avocado Oil Spray for greasing pan
- 1/3 cup palm sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg whites whipped to soft peaks
- 2 ½ cups certified gluten-free oats
- 1 ¾ cup gluten-free flour or brown rice flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- ½ cup cocoa nibs
Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a cookie sheet with Spiced Chai Avocado Oil Spray.
Cream butter and sugar until light. Add vanilla and eggs.
Stir in oats, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, chia, and cocoa nibs. Dough will be slightly stiff.
Fold in the whipped eggs. These just add a little bit of fluff to the dough.
Bake in the oven on the center rack for about 12 minutes. These don’t bake down like regular cookies, so if you want a flatter cookie, press them down a bit before baking.
For sweeter cookies, add 3 tbsp of maple syrup to the mixture. For moister cookies, add chia gel to combat crumbles. You will love the health benefits and texture it offers.
