I have a very definite sweet tooth. Not really a good thing when trying to lose weight. It is incredibly hard to say no to a cookie, cake or anything junk food related, really. So, I went off in a search of how to focus on weight loss while still fueling that sweet tooth.
I am very glad to say that I figured out a way to fuel my sweet tooth while still working on losing weight and becoming a healthier me.
Low fat, weight loss dessert recipes!
My favorite, specifically, is oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I make them for my family, friends and my co-workers and they all love them as much as I do. They didn’t believe me at first when I told them they only had one hundred and two calories a cookie and were low in fat, carbohydrates and sodium!
It makes me very happy to know that anyone like me who has a sweet tooth can still continue on their weight loss journey, have healthier cookies and treats without worrying about what it will cost you in the end with losing weight.
I really hope you will try these delicious, low fat cookies and see the fantastic results! They will, without a doubt, help you with losing weight. This way you don’t have to give in to temptation and reverse the progress you were making. Now you can have an occasional healthy treat and still watch yourself make amazing progress with losing weight!
Weight Loss Dessert – Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Take out two baking sheets and cover them with parchment paper. In a bowl, combine a half cup of whole wheat pastry flour, one teaspoon of cinnamon, two cups of rolled oats, half a teaspoon of baking soda, half a cup of all purpose flour and half a teaspoon of salt. Set it aside for the time being.
In a bigger bowl, add half a cup of tahini and four tablespoons of unsalted butter (make sure it’s cold) that has been cut into segments. Mix well until paste like. In the same bowl, combine two thirds of a cup of light brown sugar and two thirds of a cup of granulated sugar. Mix well.
In the same bowl, add in one large egg and then one egg white from a large egg along with one tablespoon of vanilla extract. Beat together well. Take the mixture in the smaller bowl and add it to this larger one. Then, throw in half a cup of walnuts and one cup of chocolate chips and stir everything together.
Place one tablespoon of the mixture onto the baking sheet. Flatten it with your hands. Do so with the rest of the mixture placing each tablespoon about two inches apart. Place the cookies into the oven and bake at three hundred and fifty degrees for about fifteen minutes. Let them cool and then enjoy!
PS- Eating healthier through wonderful recipes like this and designing a diet meal plan each week has really helped my weight loss. I’ve lost fifteen pounds so far! However, to reach my weight loss goal which is twenty more pounds, I’ve decided to take up pilates starting tomorrow. I’m going to try to do pilates half an hour each day to give my weight loss an extra kick. I’ll let you know how it goes!
