Healthy chocolate chip cookies without butter, white flour or refined sugar - but still darn delicious

I am done with all of my written exams in high school! Whoopee!!! I don’t believe it. It feels like all three years of high school has been leading up to the written exams. I have had so many mock exams, written so many exam papers and answered so many old exam questions in order to get ready for my own written exams. And now they are over. Never am I going to write a Danish essay again – YES! Seriously those are a total drag.

Now I only have the really tough ones left: the oral exams -.- And I personally got oral Danish – ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? Yeah, sorry, I have it in for Danish but it’s soooo boring.

And oral math (which is okay since it’s my favourite subject – it’s just a tough exam) and the mandatory cross-subject project…

Jeg er færdig med alle de skriftlige eksaminer i hele gymnasiet! Jubiii!!! Det er så vildt. Det føles, som om hele min gymnasietid har ledt op til netop the skriftlige eksaminer (ikke mindst matematik), og nu er de bare slut. Gennem de tre år har jeg lavet et utal af tidligere eksamenssæt i både engelsk, matematik, biotek og dansk, så det var sådan en underlig følelse pludselig at sidde med det, der er blevet lavet specielt til mig. Men det er så rart – aldrig igen skal jeg skrive en skide kronik eller litterær artikel – YES! Seriøst skriftlig dansk er dødens pølse.

Nu er der bare de rigtig slemme tilbage – de mundtlige -.- Personligt har jeg trukket mundtlig dansk – VIRKELIG?! Jeg er så færdig med det fag – undskyld…

Og mundtlig matematik (hvilket er okay, da det er mit yndlingsfag, men helt klart et af de hårdeste A-fag) og det obligatoriske AT.

Anyway, that’s the reason I’ve been a little absent. In the meantime however, I’ve been working on a little project – healthy chocolate chip cookies.

I love cookies and think the most unfair thing in the world is the fact that cookies have so much sugar in them. Okay kidding, but you get what I mean. So I really wanted to make a healthier version.

As I talked about in a previous post I don’t necessarily think things have to me completely healthy. So I could easily just have replaced the sugar and left the butter and white flour in the recipe. But a little troll inside my head convinced me to try and cookies with

★ No butter

★ No white flour

★ No refined sugar

(I used coconut sugar which has a way lower GI than most other sugars – 35 as opposed to 73 (source))

Anyway, det er grunden til at jeg har været lidt fraværende på det sidste. Til gengæld har jeg arbejdet på et lille projekt: Sunde chocolate chip cookies. Jatak!

Jeg elsker cookies og er af den fulde overbevisning at det mest unfair i hele verden er, at der er s meget sukker i dem. Okay, joke. Men næsten

Som jeg før har snakket om, synes jeg ikke altid man behøver at lave ting fuldstændig sunde. Så jeg kunne let bare have udskiftet sukkeret. Men et eller andet lille væsen i mit hoved fik altså den ide, at de her cookies skulle være helt sunde. Så her er de

★ Uden smør

★ Uden hvid hvedemel

★ Uden raffineret sukker

(Jeg brugte kokossukker, der kun har et GI på 35 modsat hvid sukker på 73 (kilde))

NOTE TO SELF: WRITE SHORTER POSTS!

 

NOTES

– These cookies are best the day or the day after they are made – storing them for several days will ruin the slightly crunchy outside

– Better bake the cookies one minute too little than one too may. This way they stay soft and chewy on the inside. Yummm…

– Make sure you use very fine whole wheat flour – the chunky kind makes weird cookies

————————————————————————————————————————-

NOTER

– Disse cookies er bedst den dag de er lavet eller dagen efter – ellers mister de deres slightly sprøde overflade

– Bag hellere kagerne et minut for lidt end et for meget. På denne måde sikrer du dig, at de har det lækre bløde indre, cookies skal have.

– Brug kun fin fuldkornsmel (nogle gange kaldet hvid fuldkorn) – ellers bliver de lidt sjove.
