This recipe makes a great snack or great fix for that late night craving! I like these cookies right out of the oven when they are still warm, but they are also good the next day. If you keep them in an air tight container they get kind of soft, but if you warm them up for a few seconds they taste great!
Oatmeal Cookie Snacks
1/2 C butter softened
1/2 C applesauce
3/4 C honey
2 eggs (2 T egg powder + 4 T water)
1 t vanilla
1/2 C buttermilk (1/2 C milk + 1 1/2 t vinegar & let sit about 5 min.)
2 C whole wheat flower
2 T ground flax seed
2 C oats (I use quick oats)
1 t cinnamon
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 C chocolate chips
In a mixer or large bowl add all ingredients, except the chocolate chips, and mix until blended. The batter will be very moist. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Using a melon baller, cookie scoop, or a rounded tablespoon, place dough about 2" apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until cookies are slightly browned on the edges. Cool the cookies for a minute or two and transfer to a cooling rack.
You could add nuts, dried fruit, etc to these cookies to boost the nutrition, but we are allergic at my house to nuts and dried fruit is a hard sell to my kids in a cookie. I hope you like these as much as we do!!
