I know, I know! You still have a hang-over from eating so many desserts and sweets during the holidays. Or has it turned into a nasty habit? And yes, you need to lose those additional pounds you gained. Now, you are torn between indulging that sweet tooth, yet, you want to keep track of your weight-loss plan for the new year. But can you justify that craving by eating a healthy dessert? Why not try these Chewy Oat Cookies now!

BAKE YOUR OWN OAT COOKIES

Presenting… Chewy Oat Cookies for your indulgent pleasure! Whether you are a home cook or baking enthusiast, baking your own cookies will ensure that you:
• Only use premium and quality ingredients
• Use the choice oats and multi-grains for a healthier version
• Reduce the amount of sugar if desired
• Use healthy sweeteners such as coco sugar or sugar alternative
• Use egg alternatives if you are watching your cholesterol
• Adjust baking time to make the cookies, crunchy on the outside but chewy on the inside
• Produce toasted, golden brown or baked just right, however, you desire.
Oh yes, you do have a choice! For the quality, you can make baking your cookies more affordable too. And best of all, you can even turn baking into an income-earning grind. It’s all up to you.

FREEZE THE DOUGH

The beautiful thing about baking your own cookies at home is that you can make a huge batch but bake only what you need. You can choose to roll up the excess cookie dough into parchment paper liner sheets and keep them packaged into Ziplock bags which can be pulled out from the freezer whenever you want to bake a batch of freshly baked cookies! Packaged properly, the cookie dough can be kept in the freezer for at least a month. Well, I would probably cook them within a week though. HAHA!

TAKEAWAY

If you bake your own chewy oat cookies, you can keep your resolution to stay healthy and keep healthy throughout the year. How?
1. Increase fiber consumption by using only good quality oats and multi-grains
2. Use quality, low-calorie, low-sugar chocolate chips and sweeteners
3. Use healthy nuts like walnuts and almonds
4. Remember to indulge but maintain portion-control (well-timed small bites only)
5. Cookie size should be smaller than regular so that you will start feeling guilty when you finish 1 cookie
6. Bake only what you need, eat in moderation

  1. Normally I do not learn post on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up
    very pressured me to check out and do so! Your writing taste has been surprised me.
    Thanks, quite nice article.

  2. When your recipe calls for “oats,” what are we talking about here?
    I keep instant oats on hand, but don’t use them often – I should think they’d turn to mush in a cookie
    I have rolled oats, because that is what is often called for in the recipes I use, but they don’t tend to be chewy
    I also have steel cut oats, which have a great texture, but tend to absorb more moisture than rolled
    So….What kind of oats would be the best to use for this recipe?

    • Hi Chris,
      Thanks for raising this question! When baking cookies, it is best to use old-fashioned whole rolled oats. Steel-cut oats and quick-cook oats are best recommended for breakfast. I have already edited the ingredients list to make it more specific. Hope this answers your question!
