Fully Loaded Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Healthy oatmeal raisin cookies? You bet. Using ground oats (Scottish oats), wheat germ and flax meal instead of flour is a big step toward healthier cookies because you get more fiber and whole grain goodness than just the oatmeal can provide. This recipe also uses the typical cinnamon and adds nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and allspice for a more rounded spice flavor. Walnuts provide some protein in addition to the eggs. These cookies are fully loaded with flavor and nutrition.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking sheet with oil or not necessary if using stoneware. Use a large microwave safe mixing bowl melt coconut oil to liquid, add coconut sugar and stir until most of the lumps are removed, add the eggs and beat until well combined and slightly airy, add almond milk and vanilla whisking until well combined. In a separate bowl, fork together ¾ cup ground oats (Scottish oatmeal), ½ cup wheat germ, and ½ cup flax meal, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice; stir into creamed mixture.

  2. Option: I like to substitute the raisins for dark chocolate chips and make a oatmeal chocolate chip version. I love these for dessert or breakfast with coffee!
