As most of you know, I took Cliff to a Special Needs Nutritionist. For those of you who are just visiting, You can see the eating chart I made for Cliff here. Cliff loves cookies and so I wanted to make some "healthier" cookies for him!
Here is the recipe:
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Milled Flax Seed
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened - (I know this is not "healthy", but we are also trying to get him to gain weight and this is how!)
3/4 cup Sugar In the Raw (you could use Splenda or Stevia here)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar (you could use Brown Splenda)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs (you can substitute a little Milled Flax Seed with water for one egg!)
8 oz Apple Sauce or 1 Banana (you can pretty much add any fruit puree here....play around with it!)
1 1/2 cup Choc Chips
Add in Nuts, Peanut Butter, Etc!
Mix the first 4 ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Beat the Butter, Sugar, Brown Sugar and Vanilla Extract until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time. Add the dry mixture slowly and mix. Stir in the fruit puree and some choc chips! Bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes. And then out comes....
These delicious cookies:
Cliff was so happy when he woke up from his nap and ate cookies for his snack!
I'd say they are a hit!
