Oatmeal Cookies with either raisins or blueberries
These are my favorite (relatively) healthy cookies. They are a great snack, dessert, or complement to your afternoon tea. Add pecans or walnuts to make them more filling.
¼ c earth balance
¼ c peanut butter
1/2 c maple syrup
½ c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 ¼ c whole wheat flour
1 c oats
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ c flaxseed
½ c raisins or blueberries (fresh is best but frozen also works)
pinch of salt
- Heat the earth balance and peanut butter together on the stove top or in the microwave. Transfer to a bowl and combine with the maple syrup, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Whisk together.
- In a separate bowl mix together the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, pinch of salt, and flaxseed. Combine the flour mixture with the wet ingredients. Then fold in the raisins or blueberries.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop the cookies into ~15 cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
