Recipe by Mary Scheffert
From the book "The Stevia Cookbook" by Ray Sahelian MD & Donna Gates. I am posting this recipe in order to get more people interested in the all-natural sweetening herb stevia, and to get the nutritional information for this recipe.
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 3⁄4 teaspoon white stevia powder
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 1⁄4 cups currants
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet (or use parchment paper) & set aside.
- In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder & nutmeg.
- Place butter in another mixing bowl & whisk until light & fluffy. Add the stevia & eggs (one at a time), whisking well after each egg. Add the flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time until thoroughly combined. Stir in the oats & currants.
- Form the mixture into 2-inch balls & place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
- Variations: For cinnamon-raisin oatmeal cookies, simply substitute 1 cup raisins & 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon for the currants & nutmeg. For chocolate oatmeal cookies, substitute 1 1/2 cups carob chips for the currants. For a low-sugar variation, use grain-sweetened chocolate or carob chips.
