So I googled "healthy oatmeal cookies" and found this recipe on food.com. Although I wouldn't quite call these "healthy", they've got less sugar and butter than most cookies do! And they're pretty yummy as well. I really like that they didn't get flat and crunchy, but rather chewy with crispy edges, and somewhat fluffy. I added chocolate chips per Andrew's request (though I personally would prefer them plain I think!) but you can add whatever you like - raisins, nuts, white chocolate chips...you pick!
Honey Oatmeal Cookies
3 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp water
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups rolled or quick oats
add-in of choice (I used chocolate chips)
1. Preheat oven to 350, and grease or line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together butter, brown sugar, honey, egg, and water with a hand mixer (or Kitchenaid mixer for all you fancy people).
3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir oats into dry mixture.
4. Mix dry ingredients into the wet ones. Mix thoroughly and stir in chocolate chips.
5. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet, and bake for 12-15 minutes. Cool on rack and enjoy!
Yields 15-30 cookies...depending on how you interpret the word "heaping". :)
