Mindful Eating- Choco-Chip Cookies-The goodness of almonds,flax seeds and wholewheat



With my little one in life, the more the homemade the better. So myself and my husband started baking cakes and cookies and snack items for him. While they are still loaded with butter and sugar we try to add our bit of healthy ingredients and make it better for him...taste wise and health wise.

This recipe is straight out of our love to let our little one munch on a whole whet cookie and not use all-purpose flour at all. Coupled with almond powder which we ground at home and ground flax seeds this cookie is a definite delight. A must try.

Preparation Time-30 mins (included the time taken to shape the cookies and put them on sheet)

Cook time-10 mins

Total time-40-45 mins.

Cuisine-Snacks

Recipe-International

Serves- around 35-40 cookies of medium shape.

THE WHAT?

Ingredients

2 cups whole wheat flour
½  cup brown sugar
½ cup unsalted butter
½  cup almond powder and flax seed powder
1tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
½  cup semi sweet choc chips

THE HOW?
Heat oven to 375ºF.

Take a big wide bowl. Mix sugar, butter, vanilla and egg. Stir in whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff). Add almond powder and flax seeds powder. Mix well.
Since the dough will be sticky you can use your hands to form round shape cookies and place them on the cookie sheet. 
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet. Cool.
These cookies will be soft when taken out but will become crisp once cool.
 Store in air tight container.
