Chewy Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Just made these this morning for my family and they loved them. I tried to put a little healthier spin on them by using some whole wheat flour and adding some flax seed meal (adds fiber and Omega-3 fatty acids). Quick and easy to make and oh so yummy.


- 1/2 Cup Butter (1 stick)
- 1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon flax seed meal

In large bowl mix together butter (let it sit out so it softens or microwave it 15 seconds), 2 different sugars with a wooden spoon. Then add in the baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and cloves. Mix well. Next beat in your egg and add your vanilla. Add your 2 types of flour, oats and flaxseed meal and mix until well blended. Drop dough onto baking sheet (I recommend using parchment paper on your baking sheets) with spoon, making 12 different cookies. Pop the baking sheet into a preheated oven (375 degrees) for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and enjoy!

Makes 12 great cookies. If you want more, double up the ingredients.
