- For the preparation of the cookies, together whip the oats, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, and flour in a medium-sized bowl. In the other bowl, together mix the egg, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. Put maple syrup in the mixture and stir it. Add the flour mixture into it, and mix it well till it gets completely combined. Fold it gently in 2 1/2 tbsp. of the chocolate chips. Keep the cookie dough to rest for at least for 10 minutes.
- Heat up the microwave oven to 325oF, and line up the baking sheet with a parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- Take the cookie dough and round it up on 15 scoops on a prepared sheet. Now, flatten about half of their original height by making use of a spatula. Press the remaining chocolate chips on the tops gently. Bake it for at least 10 to 13 minutes at 325o Cool the mixture on a pan for at least 10 minutes transferring to a wire rack.
- Before serving, prepare the drizzle by stirring together the milk, cheese, cream, and stevia in a small bowl. Move the mixture in a zip-topped bag. Cut off the tiny piece of one corner and drizzle cooled cookies on the top.
Important Things to Consider For this recip
Measure both the flour and oats correctly by making use of spoon and level method. Also, you can make use of the kitchen scale as well. Remember, too much of it will make the cookies dry and will leave them crumbly rather than chewy.
Instant oats are also known as a minute or quick-cooking oats. These are available in big containers, just as the old-fashioned oats. These are not the ones in small flavored oatmeal packages. If you want to prepare this on your own, you can add a similar quantity of old-fashioned oats in a blender. Pulse it for 10 to 12 times.
In order to get a gluten-free version, make use of gluten-free instant oats and gluten-free flour blend –
- 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum
- 1/2 cup of millet flour
- 2 tablespoons of brown rice flour
- 2 tablespoons of tapioca flour
The cream cheese can be used as an alternative for the nonfat milk.
You might substitute 1 1/2 tsp. of pure maple syrup, agave, or honey for the vanilla cream stevia. This substitution can be used to omit the milk too.
I hope that you will love these cookies.
