I am a huge fan of cookies, so much that my morning coffee is never complete without a crumbly or chewy cookie on the side. Today I am sharing my favourite, go-to oatmeal cookies recipe. It is easy to make, delicious and you can throw in so many different things. This time I tossed in a handful of flaxseeds but feel free to substitute with some nuts, raisins, cranberries or even chocolate chips.
WHOLE WHEAT OATMEAL COOKIES
2 cups organic coconut sugar
1 cup salted butter at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs at room temperature
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 cups old-fashioned oats
A handful of flaxseeds
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat together the coconut sugar and butter until fluffy.
Mix in the vanilla.
Add the eggs one at a time.
Mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, flaxseeds, nutmeg and cinnamon in a bowl. Add it into the wet mixture in 3 batches mixing until just combined.
Add in the oats and continue mixing.
Scoop and drop portions of dough onto a baking sheet, 2 inches apart.
Bake for 11-15minutes until golden.
Let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.
