I see there is another recipe similar to this on here, but it is a bit more complicated than mine, calls for more ingredients and is a bit harder to make. So I thought I'd post my own version too, since I happen to be quite fond of it! Found this in my mom's "Feed Me I'm Yours" cookbook, 1978. Great cookie for kids - chalk full of whole grain, fruit and protein!
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1⁄2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3⁄4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup oatmeal, uncooked
- 1⁄4 cup wheat germ
- 1⁄2 cup powdered milk
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 -2 cup raisins
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Cream butter until smooth.
- Add peanut butter, sugar, egg an vanilla; beat well.
- In a separate bowl combine flour, wheat germ, dry milk, baking powder and baking soda.
- Add the dry infredients to the wet and stir well.
- Add milk, oats and raisins and mix.
- On a greased cookie sheet place a heaping spoonful of dough and spread it into a circle leaving an inch or more between cookies.
- Sprinkle with sesamee seeds, if desired, and press into dough.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes.
- Allow cookies to cool before removing as they are very fragile while warm.
These were really good and my husband even liked them. I skipped out on the raisins, used regular splenda in place of the brown sugar. I even used oat bran in place of wheat germ. I think it made them turn out a little "heartier" than normal but they were still really good and sugar free!
