Oatmeal Cookies

   

Behold oats: one of the most miraculous foods on earth. It has given us granola, oatcakes, my favorite breakfast, and best of all….oatmeal cookies!

The beautiful thing about oatmeal cookies is that they contain several “healthy” ingredients (oats, walnuts, raisins and…um…an egg?) so as you reach surrepticiously for that fifth cookie, you can tell yourself that you are just getting your daily dose of fiber.  It’s not technically a lie!

  

Cookie + bathrobe + coffee on the stove = happiness šŸŖšŸ’šŸ¾

Needless to say, I have exceeded my fiber requirement for the day. Now you can too!
You will need…

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • If you’re not a raisins and walnuts sort of person, substitute 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

Beat the butter and sugars till well-combined. Add the honey, vanilla and egg.

Stir in the flour mixture, then add the oats. Add the raisins and walnuts and mix. 

Plop tablespoon-sized chunks of dough on a cookie pan and bake 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
