{healthy!} 60 second deep dish gooey chocolate chip cookie

Who wants a warm, gooey, melty, chocolate-y, sweet, decadent chocolate chip cookie? Anyone? I can't be the only one.


What about one that's nutritious and made in 60 seconds in the microwave?


Sometimes after dinner, you just want a chocolate chip cookie. This recipe is your answer. The tollhouse cookie dough in the back of your fridge is not. This "cookie" is NOT made of empty calories... it's made of oatmeal and nutrient-rich ingredients like coconut oil and apple sauce. Plus some dark chocolate (for its antioxidants, clearly) and a bit of brown sugar for good measure. It tastes decadent -- and it IS a bit of a treat -- but it's not bad for you! And it's made with real ingredients. Each "cookie" has 225 calories, 10 g fat, 3 g fiber, 3.5 g protein, and 18 g sugar -- and is more than enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. 


If you love chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven when they're still melty and gooey -- almost still cookie-dough-ish -- then you'll love this. I won't even judge you if you eat if for breakfast this weekend. Hey, it has oats... it works!

Got a craving? Here's the recipe:

60 Second Deep Dish Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie
For 1 serving

Ingredients
-1 tsp coconut oil
-2 tsp brown sugar
-1 packet truvia, stevia, or other sweetener of your choice
-1/4 cup old-fashioned oats, or 1/4 cup prepared oat flour
-1 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
-2 tbsp vanilla (or plain) almond milk (or milk of your choice)
-1 tbsp dark chocolate chips, plus a few more for sprinkling on top
-1/8 tsp baking powder
-Drop vanilla extract
-Pinch sea salt

Directions
-Melt the coconut oil in a bowl for 30 seconds.
-Mix the brown sugar and sweetener into the melted coconut oil until the oil is mostly absorbed.
-If you don't have prepared oat flour, make it yourself: place oats in a food processor and grind until fine. You're looking for a sawdust-like consistency (should take about 30-60 seconds).
-To the bowl with the coconut oil and sugars, add the oats, apple sauce, baking powder, milk, vanilla, and salt. Mix to combine well. Add the chocolate chips and gently stir in.
-Spoon mixture into a ramekin or small microwave-safe bowl. Top with a couple more chocolate chips. Microwave for 60 seconds (or until desired gooey-ness is reached). Let sit for at least 1 minute.
