NMB Cookie Recipe

4 Jun

I went to Santa Barbara a few weeks ago to visit some amazing people in my life, Nick Bolton and Nina Burke. We had a great time as always hanging out. However, during this visit I found out about NMB cookies (NMB is Nick and Nina initals). Nick swears they are healthier cookies by using many substitutions for the usual fattening products found in cookies. I have to say I am a believer because if you knew Nick and Nina personally,  they take pride in making healthy choices whether food or working out.  Therefore, when Nick was telling me about these cookies I had to try them! Healthy are not (which in my mind I am going full on healthy), they are extremely delicious and everyone should try them!

NBM Recipe


  • ¾ c. all-purpose flour
  • ¼ sp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ c. sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ c. apple sauce or vanilla yogurt
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tbsp egg whites
  • Nutmeg – just a sprinkle


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheet.
  2. Mix all ingredients except for oats and chocolate chips.
  3. Add oats and chocolate chips.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet. Makes about 10-12 cookies.

*I added raisins and dark chocolate chips to my batch and t’was amazing.

Thanks Nick and Nina for sharing the recipe!
