A hearty cookie
Top Review by SnickerFog
This is an excellent recipe for a breakfast cookie! The texture was just perfect. Not sweet, fluffy and very "healthy tasting." I see how some might call them bland. I followed the suggestions about flavor and added 1 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. nutmeg, 1 t. vanilla extract. They were very nutmeg-y, lol, but I used black currants for the "dried fruit" and it the two flavors complemented each other wonderfully. Also, I simply used a greased cookie sheet (no parchment paper) and dropped the cookies into meatball-sized lumps. I was able to remove them immediately and they didn't spread much. The recipe made about 16 this way. I cooked them for about 15 minutes.
- 1 cup steel cut oats (cook and cool beforehand)
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup canola oil
- 1 cup spelt flour (or Whole Wheat Pastry Flour)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup dried apple (or alternate chopped dried fruit)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt

- Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
