Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

Corrie made these cookies…and I think they are the BEST healthy cookies I have ever had!

I had seen them on www.tammysrecipes.com and after I had seen the “rave reviews” I thought they would be good!

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour*

1/2 cup rice flour (or 1/2 cup whole wheat)

3/4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 1/4 cups rolled oats

6 T. butter, softened

2 eggs

1/2 cup honey

2 T. molasses**

1 tsp. vanilla

1-2 cups (total) chocolate chips, nuts, seeds, optional

Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, eggs, honey, molasses, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix, using hands if needed. Add any optional ingredients and drop by onto a lightly greased cookie sheets, or roll dough into balls and press lightly.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, or until cookies are done. Remove from oven, wait 5 minutes, and then remove to wire rack to cool.

Yield: 3-4 dozen

*We used whole wheat pastry flour. I prefer to use it in my healthy desserts, muffins, and quick breads.

**The original recipe called for 1/4 cup, but we cut it down to 2 T. because I don’t like too much molasses color/flavor. 2 T. made them a pretty golden-brown color and a pleasant taste.

One more note. =) If you want to make these EXTRA-healthy, just leave out the butter! That’s what we did (on accident) and everyone still LOVED them! This is definitely a make-again!

God Bless!

    I don’t have molasses in the house…can you suggest a replacement?

  4. Rachel says:

    Jennifer, you might be able to have the same results if you replace the molasses with honey or brown sugar. Enjoy these yummy oatmeal cookies!

    What dose “.T” stand for?

    “T.” stands for a tablespoon
