I found a great recipe on Weelicious for these cookies, I knew I had to try them. So yummy! And I love that they’re full of good stuff.
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups rolled/old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup honey
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups mix-ins – a mixture of raisins or other dried fruit, chopped nuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds. I used raisins, chopped cashews, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and a sprinkle of chia seeds.
Preheat the oven to 350F. Mix together the flour, oats, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl.
In a stand mixer, beat the butter and honey together for around 3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in the mix-ins.
Using a tablespoon measure or a medium cookie scoop, put the dough on a parchment lined baking tray. Flatten the cookies in to the shape you want – they don’t spread when they bake. Bake for 12 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Makes around 36.
