These are relatively healthy for a cookie...not too sweet and with some extra fiber they make a nice breakfast treat. They are best eaten fresh and hot out of the oven but still taste good the next day. Craisins or raisins can be added for variety.
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 1⁄4 cups oats
- 1⁄2 cup wheat germ or 1⁄2 cup ground flax seeds
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
- In a large bowl combine brown sugar, egg and vegetable oil. Stir until well combined. Stir in flour mixture, oats and wheat germ (or flax seed).
- Drop by tablespoonfuls on baking sheet. Flatten slightly with glass (not too much if you like the centers a little soft). Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
I make these all the time. It's a healthy treat for my kids. The only thing is I add a bit of water or extra oil(about a tbsp) as I find them a bit dry.
These can easily become addicting. After the first one, I had to eat 2 more!! The downside is that they were too dry and hard to roll into a ball to drop on cookie sheet. I guess it needs a little more fluid, as jennythecook said in her review. I used the bottom of a glass to flatten them out. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
These are the best and we enjoy them for breakfast. I would like to try using applesauce in place of some of the oil and will report the results when I do. Also, I would recommend cutting back on the salt, especially if you are using sea salt.
