Healthy oatmeal cookie- so good!

Posted by Brekk Bird |



  • 12 ounces Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup organic butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 cups oats, uncooked (or 8oz weighed)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans 

Directions


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar and brown sugar at medium speed until creamy and lightened in color (about 4 minutes). Add vanilla and egg, and mix on low speed until incorporated. Stir flour with baking soda, salt, and spices; add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Stir in oats. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 9 minutes for a chewy cookie, 10 to 11 minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool 1 minute on a cookie sheet; remove to wire cooling racks. Store in tightly covered container. 

** They will be dark in color but taste very sweet. They are flat and spread like a lace cookie, with a thin crispy edge and chewy inside.  I have even added some quinoa, barley, and raisins for the daring ones:)
