whole wheat oat cookies / cinnamon maple oat cookies
I hate to claim that a cookie is healthy but this is definitely one of the healthier cookie recipes that I’ve come across; and for a cookie not loaded with butter or too much sugar, it is pretty tasty. The original recipe called for white sugar and canola oil, so it is fine to substitute with whatever you have on hand. I used olive oil and raw sugar; I tend to steer clear of white sugar if I can help it. Anyhow, it’s very hard to stop at one. Variation is also posted below!
This recipe makes around 20 medium sized cookies.
1 large egg
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup raw sugar
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup rolled oats
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Mix all wet ingredients with the sugar and beat together.
Add all remaining ingredients and stir well. Roll small balls of the batter and place onto trays lined with baking paper.
Ensure all the balls are flattened. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
- Replace sugar with 1/3 cup maple syrup
- Add 1 cup rolled oats instead of 3/4 cup
- Add 1 tbs cinnamon
