This is my spin on Monster Oatmeal Cookies. I reduced the sugar quite a bit and played around with some of the other ingredients. The end result was a crunchy, sweet, yummy and sturdy cookie that I enjoyed a lot! I hope you will, too!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. First combine flax seed meal and water in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds on high and allow too cool for a few minutes while you cream the butter.
  2. In a large bowl cream butter and sugars for 8 minutes (do not skip this, it gives the cookies texture).
  3. Add the vanilla and the flax egg. Stir to combine.
  4. In a second bowl combine flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda and apple pie spice.
  5. Add to the butter mixture and stir to combine.
  6. Fold in m&ms or choc chips, raisins, oats and coconut.
  7. If your dough is dry, add enough of the roiboos tea to make a thick cookie dough. It should not be sticking to your hands much.
  8. Using a large ice-cream scoop place heaps of dough onto a paper-lined cookie sheet and flatten slightly.
  9. Bake at 180°C/350 °F for 12-15 minutes or lightly browned around the edges.
  10. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
  11. Enjoy!
