OH YEAH THESE COOKIES ARE LIKE super packed with healthy stuff like oats (even oat bran) and stuff. It even has chia seeds, which makes it even more healthier and exciting! I’ve also been trying to cook more with coconut oil lately, as well as chia seeds. They are so fun to make!

I have to say, I was really afraid of coconut oil at first because I just have this fear with saturated fat, but after learning all the benefits and how it’s different from the ones you find in meat, I’m excited to say that I really don’t fear it as much. It’s been so awesome using it cos I LOVE the smell and taste of coconuts!

At first, I wasn’t going to make them all marble but for some reason, having CHOCOLATE in things just makes it so much better, so yes – chocolate it had to be.

Does anyone else obsess over the taste of chocolate like I do?

Just a note about the cookies. If you like them softer, bake it for shorter amount of time (such as 15 minutes). If you like it crunchier and harder, bake it for about 5 more minutes longer (though replace 2 teaspoon of maple syrup with 1 tablespoon). Though I will tell you that these cookies are not chewy.

Marble Chocolate Trail Mix Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup oat flour
1/4 cup oat bran
1/4 cup instant old fashioned oats
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon extra light olive oil
1 tablespoon brown rice flour
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon raisins
2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vegan chocolate/carob chips
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 pitted dates, finely chopped
1 tablespoon cacao powder

Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C).

Be sure you’ve made oat flour if you haven’t bought it, it’s simply by grinding up oats (whatever kind) until it becomes a fine powder. Also, be sure to chop the dates into fine little pieces.

Add all the ingredients except the tablespoon of cacao powder and stir until everything is mixed very evenly.

Once everything is well mixed, add the cacao powder and give it a few brief stirs so that some parts are dark, while others are not.

Press the dough into flat, small circles (like the shape of a cookie) and place it on an oven tray sprayed with non-stick cooking oil. Be sure to give some space between each cookie.

Bake in the oven for about 15-17 minutes and allow it to cool down.

      Hi :D Oh, the chia seeds add nutrition but is not necessary, so feel free to leave it out, or add a tablespoon extra of any other ingredient in there :D
