Oatmeal Cookies are one of my favorite desserts because they are easy to make and you can leave them simple or add some fun! In this recipe I added chocolate and butterscotch chips. I also cut the sugar in half by substituting our Manuka Honey. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
YIELD: Makes 24 cookies
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup PRI manuka honey
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups quick rolled oats
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 tsp. PRI fine salt
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 cup raisins, chocolate or butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350°F
In medium bowl, beat butter & sugar until thoroughly blended. Blend in honey, egg and vanilla until smooth.
In separate bowl, mix together oats, flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Mix into honey mixture. Add chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 14 minutes until cookies are golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool 2 to 3 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
Cool completely then store in an airtight container.
TIP: High altitude adjustment: Increase oats to 2 cups and decrease whole wheat flour to 3/4 cup.
