Healthy Breakfast Cookies

I adapted the original recipe to make them healthier. They're tasty and chewy. I used a small cookie scoop but you can use a tablespoon.


36 cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 teaspoons flax seeds
1.5 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnuts or almonds

Preheat oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and flax; stir into the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in the oats, chocolate chips, nuts and raisins. 

Use a cookie scoop to drop the cookies about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until lightly golden. Let them cool for 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
