Delicious and filling triple chocolate oat cookies made healthier. The perfect afternoon snack for hungry kids and grown ups too! (sponsored post)
Some days you just need a chunky chocolate cookie to get you through that afternoon slump… agreed?!
Cookies aren’t known for being the most nutritious of snacks so I thought I’d try to make my own healthier version, packed with more filling ingredients and less sugar than the shop bought version.
To make this recipe I used my new Magimix 4200XL Food Processor that was gifted to me.
I have been a fan of Magimix for a few years now. My old Magimix has been one of my most used kitchen gadgets but sadly was on its last legs after constant use for several years!
Magimix kindly gifted me this new machine and also a second one for one of my readers! Head over to this post to enter the competition.
Back to the cookies…. and yes I used the Magimix Food Processor to make them. The machine makes light work of mixing up the dough and is perfect if you want to get the kids involved in helping. I always worry about the kids using hand or stand mixers in case they poke their fingers in! But making cookies in the Magimix is much safer as the machine automatically switches off if the lid is removed.Print

- 25g milk chocolate chips

- Remove the two small bowls from the food processor, leaving only the large bowl and add the large blade.
- Add in the butter and sugar and blitz until smooth.
- Add the egg and vanilla extract and blitz again for a few seconds. If necessary use the scraping tool to scrape the mixture down the sides.
- Add in the flour, oats, cocoa and bicarbonate and blitz again until everything is well combined.
- Remove the bowl from the base of the machine and take out the blade.
- Mix in the hazelnuts and chocolate chips with a spoon and then remove the mixture from the bowl.
- Divide the mixture into 10 equal sized balls and divide them between the two trays.
- Press each ball down and mould into a cookie shape.
- Bake for 15 minutes then remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the tray for 5-10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
Disclosure: I was gifted a free Magimix machine in return for this post but as always all thoughts and opinions are honest and are my own.
