    All I crave every night after dinner are cookies. Warm cookies and almond milk are seriously my weakness. Last week I made over 5 dozen cookies between testing for my baking class and blog eats. Needless to say we are on cookie OVERLOAD but I am loving it.

    When I was younger and my Mom used to take me to the mall, she would bribe me with a rainbow sprinkles cookies from Mrs. Fields. Those were (and still are) the BEST cookies ever. So soft and sweet and the rainbow sprinkles make them 100x more fun to eat, right? Then when I went to high school, I used to buy 3 chocolate chip cookies from the cafeteria for $1.00 almost everyday. The cookies tasted like raw cookie dough, they were SO good.  Fast forward a few more years and I went to college where the dining hall literally had 10 kinds of cookies each day. Sugar, peanut butter, chocolate chip, you name it. I used to put some in a to-go container and bring them back to my room. I even set the fire alarm off once by microwaving an M&M cookie, OOPS! It was worth it though 🙂

    So basically you get the point. Cookies have a piece of my heart. And these Flourless Dark Chocolate Chip Ginger Oatmeal Cookies are just another dreamy cookie on the list. We have made 3-ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies, Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies, a Vegan Peanut Butter Cookie Pie on the blog so far… just to name a few.

    These Flourless Dark Chocolate Chip Ginger Oatmeal Cookies are just in time for the holiday season and they are made with less then 10 ingredients that won’t have you feeling like a fat lard after, I promise! They are pretty low in sugar too, which is a game changer in the cookie world.

    These Dark Chocolate Chip Ginger Oatmeal Cookies also have a special ingredient. They have COLLAGEN in them! Yup, that’s right we are adding collagen into our cookies now.

    You are probably wondering what is collagen? Well Vital Proteins slays the collagen game my friends. I use their marine collagen every single day. Whether it is in my water, tea, baked goods like banana bread or my overnight oats, I try to get at least 1 scoop in everyday!

    Marine collagen helps promote healthy joint health, is great for our hair skin & nails and it has a solid amount of protein in it too. I am convinced it has made a difference in my hair too AKA my soft spot of my appearance. My hair has never been longer and the extra nutrients do it wonders.

    The best part of using it, is you don’t even taste the collagen when you add it in. There are a few different kinds of Vital Proteins so you can find what works best for you. Try it out and let me know what you think!

    Would love it if you could add a brief description of the cookies (I.e. Soft,crispy,chewy,cakey,etc)!

    I make these cookies all the time and figured I should post a comment to attest to how much I love them. I leave out the collagen and they come out just fine. I’ve tried variations like leaving out the ginger for a more traditional chocolate chip oatmeal flavor; adding almond extract; increasing the vanilla (always do this); etc and these cookies work every time. Also, you don’t even need that much sweetener if you don’t mind a less sweet cookie—I use 1/4 cup maple syrup and them to be sweet enough. Thanks for a great, versatile recipe.
