We love oatmeal raisin cookies in this house, they are our go to snack, always stocked in the cookie jar. I add some secret fabulous healthiness to them. There are certainly healthier snacks, but we simply can't live without cookies here. For my husband this is a long way from the super processed, super sweet, thirty ingredient store bought cookies he was addicted to!
1 tablespoon flax seed
1 tablespoon wheat germ
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups flour (try 1/2 whole wheat)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 to 3 cups oatmeal
1/2 to 1 cup organic raisins (because non-organic are really high in pesticides)
2. Mix ingredients in a large mixing bowl in the above order. I use my vintage KitchenAid, so much easier.
3. Spoon (I use my hands) 2" round dough balls onto two baking sheets, 3 by 4 cookies.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 17 minutes depending on your oven and how dark you like them.
5. Let cool, enjoy!
