This recipe for healthy oatmeal cookies was originally submitted by Rose from Woodbridge, Ontario Canada.

It takes good old oatmeal cookies, which I absolutely love, and kicks up the nutrition with the addition of flax and by using whole wheat flour.

Rose says: Oatmeal cookies are a comfort food from our childhood, but we can take this already healthier cookie and make it more healthy. Check out my heart-healthy recipe!

Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup of rolled oats (not the quick cooking kind)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Add-ins: 1 cup of any of the following or a mix of the following: dried cranberries or other fruit, walnuts or any other nuts, trail mix, chocolate/butterscotch chips, etc. - or a 1 cup combination of any of the above for true "kitchen sink" style cookies.

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Use parchment paper to line a cookie sheet.

Step 2

In a large bowl, beat canola oil with sugars until well incorporated. Beat in egg and vanilla extract.

Step 3

In another bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking soda and flaxseed meal.

Step 4

Mix the dry ingredients into wet ingredients a little at a time, until incorporated but not over-mixed.

Step 5

Drop by the tablespoons onto the parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, until edges are just starting to turn brown. Bake an extra minute or so for a crispier cookie.

Let cool for 2 minutes.

Makes 24 small cookies or 12 large ones. The recipe is easily doubled.
