Chocolate chip "porridge" cookies (sugar free) with homemade chocolate chips

If I was a london commuter I would 100% be the person that runs on the train just as it's about to leave looking a little flustered; with a coffee in one hand that almost spills everywhere, and a bag that almost gets caught in the door. I'd be the person who after walking up the train, sits down, finally finishes rustling about then proceeds to eats her breakfast on the train; and this is what I would take. I imagine everyone would be sneakily glancing at me with looks of slight annoyance and disgust that I'm eating chocolate chip cookies for breakfast; little do they know these cookies are almost like non-messy porridge to-go with all the taste of a cookie and non of the processed rubbish. Now don't get me wrong I wouldn't eat cookies for breakfast everyday...I'd eat pancakes too!

If you've got this far it means you've probably ignored the fact that these chocolate chips look a little bit like fat baby slugs...and I'm sure if you hadn't already noticed you're about to scroll up and silently agree with me...anyway

Original recipe by The gracious pantry

20g/ 1/4 cup of rolled/porridge oats
125ml/ 1/2 cup of water
110g/ 2/3 cup of ground almonds
3 tbsp honey/agave syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
15g/ 1/8 cup whole wheat flour
Homemade sugar free chocolate chips, recipe here, I used about 1/3 of the bar.

Preheat the oven to 170C/325F/Gas mark 3
Make the porridge with the oats and water and set aside to cool. Alternatively you could use milk if that's how you have your porridge it also might give the cookie a slightly richer flavour.
Once the porridge has cooled place in a bowl and add the; honey, vanilla, cinnamon and flour and mix until combined.
Add your homemade chocolate chips and fold into the mixture be careful not to overmix so to keep the chocolate chips whole.
Spoon the mixture into a baking tray lined with greaseproof/parchment paper
Bake for 20 minutes
Makes about 8 cookies depending on size.
