This is a modificiation … a delicious one, in my opinion … of my Oatmeal & Date (Heart Healthy?) cookies. No, I don’t usually eat cookies for breakfast. But these have enough good things in them that it isn’t uncommon for me to have three of these (without chocolate chips) with my morning tea, in place of breakfast.
Ingredients for Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
2/3 cup of Ghee and 1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup salt with butter, softened (at least to room temperature)
1 cup or 250 ml brown sugar (packed if you want more sweetness)
2 eggs slightly beaten
3 tbsps or 45 ml of water
1 cup or 250 ml whole grain flour (I use Einkorn or Spelt, typically)
1 cup or 250 ml of old fashioned oats (regular should work too)
1/2 cup or 125 ml of Nutracleanse (or !/2 cup Oat bran or something similar)
1/2 cup or 125 ml Hemp Seeds
1 tsp or 5 ml baking powder
1/2 cup or 125 ml chopped nuts (I use either walnuts or pecans)
(My husband likes chocolate chips so I usually add 3 chips to the top of half of the cookies being baked, just before they go in the oven. But, personally, I prefer them without.)
Preparing Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
- Preheat over to 350 degrees.
- Mix Ghee and salt, or butter, with brown sugar. Then, slightly beat eggs and add to mixture along with water.
- In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients.
- Mix butter mixture and dry ingredients together.
- Drop by tablespoon onto cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
I store these, once cooled, in a sealed container in my fridge. Makes roughly 36 cookies.
