Healthy cookie recipe!
September 30, 2008 3:30pm CST
I finally found it! Finally figured it out! For years I've wanted a healthy cookie recipe that's nice and munchy but not too sweet.. kind of a cross between a cracker and a cookie.. I finally realized I could make some variations on the basic oatmeal cookie recipe! I use one fourth the sugar, and half the oil (and omega-3 oil at that), and for flour I use whole wheat flour.. put on an oiled cookie sheet by teaspoon full, press down a bit, then bake them til brown and crunchy.. They're very good and I don';t have to feel guilty feeding them to my family.. for the sweet tooths in my household though, I use the full amount of brown sugar called for but leave out the white sugar, and they are plenty sweet.. Here's the recipe: Beat two eggs add 1/2 cup brown sugar (to a cup for sweeter) 1/2 cup (omega-3) oil a big dollop of vanilla mix and add: 1 and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 1 tsp salt 1 tsp baking soda or powder, mix into the flour, add: 3 cups quick or old fashioned oats and, optional some chopped nuts or raisins mix all well and bake at 350 degrees until brown and crunchy.. for medium size about 20 minutes (if I'm remembering it correctly!) I also use this recipe (the sweeter version) for apple crisp topping.

This sounds too good to be true...lol...just one question....we use a few drops of vanilla essence in recipes like this (here in Australia) you mention "a big dollop of vanilla mix". I understand what a dollop is but I'm unsure of what "vanilla mix" is. Please enlighten me.
