Oatmeal Cookies

When my kids were younger, I used to bake them my recipe for oatmeal cookies, well they are more like granola bars instead of bar shapes I made them cookie shapes, but they would think they were cookies. With a glass of milk and navel orange, it is a complete breakfast, and the kids think they are having dessert for breakfast.

Ingredients

Scale

1 cup whole wheat flour (a pinch more depending on the moisture of the mix)

  • 1 1/2 cups of Large Flake Rolled Oats (smaller flake is ok too)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg

Wet ingredients

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup oil (corn, grapeseed, or olive) * you can also use some applesauce to replace some of the oil if you wish*
  • 1 Tablespoon Molasses
  • 1 egg (beat with 1 Tbsp Water)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

 

  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, be sure to chop

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix all the wet ingredients together. Hint: when measuring out the honey, spray the measuring cup with oil or baking spray–your honey won’t stick).
  3. Mix the wet stuff with the dry stuff. Add the raisins and walnuts and mix. If the mixture seems too wet, add a bit of flour. If it isn’t binding together well, you may wish to add an egg white.
  4. COOL the mix for 20 minutes in the fridge.
  5. Preheat the oven to 335 degrees (lower temperature due to the honey in the recipe which will burn more quickly).
  6. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto your baking sheet (I recommend lining the baking sheet with parchment paper). Press down with a fork to ensure even cooking.
  7. Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes or until golden on the bottom of the cookie. The cookies freeze well.
