Project Give: Baking For Veterans (Oatmeal Cookies)

 photo 005_zps205e23bc.png
I brought my Dixie Crystal tin in with oatmeal cookies. These cookies have a very subtle taste of sugar so I call them “healthy” cookies but they’re loaded with butter and brown sugar. The vets and volunteers loved them. They’re excellent with a cup of coffee! 🙂

Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 cup regular sugar
2 sticks unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups regular oats
1 cup multi-grain oats (wheat, barley, and rye)
1/2 cup organic flax seed meal
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 chopped almonds
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

– preheat oven to 350 degrees
– cream sugar and butter together
– add eggs one at a time and mix
– add vanilla extract and mix again
– add baking soda and salt and mix some more
– add flour and mix
– add oats and flax seed meal and mix again
– add almonds and mix one last time
– using an ice cream scoop or whatever you have on hand, scoop dough onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet
– bake at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes

These cookies are great. You can actually make those Little Debbie oatmeal creme pies with the cookies. I’m sure they would taste amazing! 🙂 Successful day today. Things went well at the VA and I got to grab Korean bbq with the big bro and then Rita’s ice after. The black cherry cheesecake gelati is the business!!

Fail Sweetly,

      Hi Valerie, welcome to my blog! 🙂 Thank you! They were laughing when I said “healthy” cookies. I bake the way I write 🙂 Sometimes simple is best. You’re very welcome.
