Need a way to get more fibre in your diet AND eat cookies?
Have we got a deal for you.
I found these cookies that taste extremely chocolaty and yet have lots of fibre in them. That makes them a touch more healthy than your average chocolate cookie.
Jo gave them her they-don't-taste-like-they-are-healthy-but-are-delicious-and-chocolaty thumbs up.
I thought these were okay. As you may or may not know, I'm not a huge fan of the sweet stuff. I didn't find these overly sweet.
I will say you will probably want to eat these within a day or two of making them though....after a couple of days the Fibre One crunchy bits get a little soft. They are still tasty but the texture changes.
Fiber One Cookie
(Slightly adapted from Betty Crocker)
1 box (1 lb 2.3 oz) Fudge Brownie Mix
2 cups Fiber One original bran cereal
1/3 cup water
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In large bowl, mix ingredients together with a spoon until well combined.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes until set.
Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely.
It doesn't get much simpler than that. According to the Betty Crocker recipe the nutritional info is:
Calories - 70
Fat - 1
Carbs - 13
Fibre - 2
That is PER COOKIE.
Okay, not exactly the healthiest cookie available BUT they are delicious and they are a great way to get some more fibre in your diet. (AND, if you want to add even more fibre.....throw in a tablespoon of ground flax seed. It won't affect the flavor or texture but it will up the fibre content even more!)
The kids will never know!
