A twist on oatmeal cookies. Good to throw in a container and take as a snack anywhere. Add some flax, chia seeds, or whatever to up the healthy factor!
4 TB softened butter
1/4 cup olive oil (or canola)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda dissolved in 1 TB of water
1/2 cup plus 2 TB flour (I use “white whole wheat”)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick)
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1 cup chocolate chips OR cacoa nibs
1/3 cup walnut pieces (or peanut, almond, whatever you fancy)
1/2 cup raisins
preheat oven to 375.
Beat butter, oil, and sugars in bowl. add eggs, baking soda mixture, flour, salt and vanilla until just combined. Stir in oats, coconut, chips, nuts and raisins until combined.
drop by rounded tablespoons onto greased baking sheets. Flatten into a round with wet spoon (dough is sticky and delicate). bake until golden.
Very yum. Definitely not low fat but who cares?!
