Best Oatmeal Cookies EVER
Welcome to a bonus July SRC recipe!!!! When I saw the call to adopt an orphan from group C I was super excited as I love exploring the other groups that make up the Secret Recipe Club. Anne’s Simple and Savory (and sometimes sweet) is a blog stuffed to the brim with healthy and delicious recipes – including an entire section devoted to vegan and vegetarian food. Since I only had a few hours to pick, make, and blog I went straight to work finding the perfect recipe. I flagged two different coconut cookies, a spicy buffalo cauliflower dish, and two perfect for baby recipes: applesauce and hummus. In the end however Joe decided he NEEDED to try her “best oatmeal cookies” recipe and so that was that! I didn’t have any raisins so I switched for semi-sweet chocolate chips – not the healthiest option but I was on a tight schedule. I also used unsweetened flaked coconut in place of shredded since that’s what I had on hand.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon table salt
¾ Cup Honey
¼ cup greek yogurt (I used Wegmans Brand)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1? cups uncooked old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips
½ cup unsweetened flaked coconut
- Preheat oven to 350 and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silione mats
- In a small measuring cup whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt - set aside
- In a large bowl, mix together the honey, Greek yogurt, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla until well combined. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined before stirring in the oats, chocolate chips, and coconut.
- Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and drop of the lined cookies sheet then bake for 9 - 10 minutes or until lightly brown. Note: they will be soft in the middle
- Remove baking sheet from oven and place on a cooling rack for two minutes before removing and placing the cookies directly on the cooling racks to finish cooling.
Easily the moistest oatmeal cookies I have EVER had! If I was aiming for a standard chocolate chip and got one of these instead I would still be a happy camper – they are seriously that good! The base recipe would also work well with craisins, going back to the healthy roots of this recipe. Actually, any dried fruit would probably do well in this dough…thinking I need to get some dried cherries!!!!
