We love baked goods, especially homemade, but I have been trying to eat better, feed the family healthier choices and exercise more. So when my parents took Austin for an afternoon and Brookland was napping, I started baking, that’s a healthy choice to make, better than sitting on my butt the whole time.
So I made some Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, but a healthy version.
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 cups of Rolled Oats
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
Mix. Then add the following wet ingredients:
- 1/2 cup honey or corn syrup (I think honey would be the healthier choice, but it can be costly)
- 1/2 cup oil (you could use some applesauce instead of the full 1/2 cup of oil)
- 1 Tablespoon Molasses
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp Vanilla
Make sure you mix it well, you don’t want to find unmixed oats in the bottom of the bowl at the end.
Now you get to add some raisins, 1/2 cup. You could also add in some nuts of your choice.
Bake in a preheat oven at 325 for 15 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom.
I have a batch of these frozen right now as a healthy homemade treat for our long drive to Saskatchewan at the end of the month. Delish!
