Healthy Honey Oatmeal Cookies

Looking for a healthy cookie for the holiday's? Try this recipe! They've been a big hit! I've made seven batches so far! Wow...this from a girl who DOES NOT like to bake :)

Healthy Honey Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients:

Serves: 10
Yield: 30 cookies

Units: US | Metric
Here is the BASE recipe. Add additional ingredients without worry. There is plenty of batter, so add away! 
  • 3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (all-purpouse is good too) 
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon  
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (aka oatmeal)

    Add these optional ingrediants to the base batter for YOUR perfect cookie! Chopped Craisins (aka dried cranberries) dates, figs, raisins or currants! Chocolate chips and/or chopped nuts!
    Protein powder would also be a great addition to the batter...I have not tried this YET but I think it would turn out great!
    **I made mine with Craisins and walnuts** 

Directions:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray (just for convenience :]).
  2. Using a mixer with the paddle attachment, mix together the butter, brown sugar, honey, egg and water thoroughly.
  3. Sift together the dry ingredients then stir in the oats. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix. Add any additional ingredients you've chosen.
  4. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
