Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Flaxseed

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Flaxseed

That's a mouthful isn't it?

You need:

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1.5 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1/4-1/2 c ground flax seed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1.5 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups oats
1-1.5 cup raisins


Mix the butter and the sugars together. Add vanilla and the eggs. In a separate bowl mix the flour, cinnamon, flax seed, and baking soda. Combine those dry ingredients with the butter/sugar mixture. Add the raisins and oats.

Drop by tablespoon or cookie scoop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12min. Makes 3.5 dozen if you use the cookie scoop and probably 4 dozen if you make teeny weeny wimpy cookies.

To be honest, I was expecting inedible wheaty oaty hockey pucks, but they turned out very well. Even Mister Lawyer had some (and went back for more). Don't tell the kids that they are healthy and they won't guess that they are.

  2. UPDATE: GONE. All gone. My dad came over to babysit for a bit yesterday and took a liking to them. A GREAT liking. I'll be making more soon, though.
