Healthy Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

We’ve been trying to eat healthier around here, and things like cookies just don’t fit our new lifestyle very well. So, I’ve been on the lookout for healthy alternatives for snacks. Kashi makes a snack cookie that’s chewy and yummy, but quite expensive and made with not-quite-healthy ingredients. I wanted to come up with something that would be slightly sweet and absolutely nutritious.
Here’s the recipe I came up with. They were so well loved that I almost didn’t get any pictures to share with you!! The great thing about these cookies is you could take them to a party and no one would know they’re healthy, made with whole wheat flour and contain zero sugar. They are so fluffy and moist!

Mix the wet ingredients:

3/4 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c quick oats
2 T wheat germ
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 c raisins
1/2 chopped nuts

Drop by large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cookies should be medium brown on the bottom, and just barely firm. Makes approximately 15 large cookies. The cookies will be soft and cake-like and very moist. They are fantastic hot and, to my surprise, just as good hours after they’ve cooled.
