As part of my gluten-free diet, I no longer eat oatmeal; but with these healthy Noatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies, I don’t even miss it anymore! Flakes of buckwheat replace the oats in these hearty cookies.
All the nutritional benefits of buckwheat make these a healthy start to the new year. Even if you didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions, you can rest assured that you’re making a good choice whenever you have these cookies.
Noatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies
½ cup applesauce
1 cup GF flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Line a baking sheet with foil. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto the foil, at least one inch apart.
Bake for 18 minutes or until slightly brown. Remove from baking sheet and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Great for breakfast or snacks, Noatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies don’t have to be saved for dessert!
