Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

This oatmeal cookie is super healthy and makes a great afterschool snack for children. These cookies are also a great way to indugle in a sweet craving without ruining your diet or worrying about the excessive fat and calories in store-bought cookies.

Makes: about 25 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 instant oats (I use Love Grown Super Oats)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farhenheit.

2. Blend the butter, yogurt, egg, brown sugar, and honey in a bowl.

3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.

4. Fold the flour mixture into the wet ingredients.

5. Add the raisins and dark chocolate chips.

6. Chill the dough for an hour.

7. Scoop dough using a tablespoon and drop onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

8. Bake until done (approxitmately 15min).

Note:

  • For softer cookies, bake for a min or two less.
  • The raisins and dark chocolate can be replaced with other add-ins. Some good additions are walnuts, cranberries, and dates.
  • The same porportion of all-purpose flour can be used instead of whole wheat flour, if preferred.
  • If you don’t mind the additional fat, you can use an additional 2 Tbsp. of butter instead of 2 Tbsp. yogurt.
  • One mashed banana can be used in place of the egg, if desired.
  • For this recipe, I use Love Grown Super Oats with chia seeds, flaxseeds, quinoa flakes, pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, and amaranth flakes. To learn more about Love Grown Super Oats and other amazing Love Grown products click here.
