Recipe Directions for Healthy Oatmeal Cookies
- These little 'cookies' are almost too healthy to be called a cookie. My Dad has been on a life long search for a cookie that wasn't too sweet so after playing around with the ingredients I have finally achieved what he wanted. In fact, he thinks they are so good and nutritious he thinks we should call them a Nutritional Supplement!
- There is no sugar in this recipe however if you prefer sugar to honey--then simply alter the recipe....cut the baking soda to 1/4 tsp. and add an extra tablespoon of water. Your baking temperature should go to 350 if you are using sugar.
- When replacing sugar with honey you have to increase the baking soda to increase the acid and you reduce liquid by 1 Tablespoon. Also, with honey baking--lower the baking temp.
- Editor's note:
- I made these today for my preschooler with the following modifications:
- used white whole wheat flour (it's what I had)
- increased the oats by 1/4 cup
- scooped tablespoons full, and did not press with fork (fuller rounder cookie)
- They are not as sweet as most oatmeal cookies I've had, which is a good thing. We could not stop eating them; especially my preschooler. They are excellent "nutritional supplements!" Thanks again for sharing them, LCheliak!
- Healthy Oatmeal Cookies (with Honey)
- Dry ingredients
- 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
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon (I actually use about 3 Tbsp--got to love cinnamon)
- 1/2 tsp Nutmeg (optional)
- 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
- Yummy ingredients
- 1/2 cup raisins (1 cup for my Dad's batch)
- 1/2 cup walnuts (more for my Dad's)!!
- In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
- 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).
- 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 very well, you may wish to add an egg white.
- COOL the mix for 20 minutes in the fridge.
- Preheat the oven to 335 degrees (lower temperature due to the honey in the recipe which will burn more easily).
- 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.
- Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes or until golden on the bottom of the cookie. The cookies freeze very well and make a great snack! Enjoy.
