Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies (No refined sugar/flour)

SORRY - NO WEEKEND POTLUCK TODAY!
We're on the road home, and plan to be back with you next week.
Please pop on over to one of my co-hosts and join the party fun. 



These cookies are a wonderful and healthy way to start your day.
I'm such a Cookie Monster - the idea of enjoying cookies for breakfast sends me running to the kitchen in the morning!!! 

But mind you...if you're not use to 'healthy' eating, let me tell you these are not like a 'regular' cookie.  They are thick, soft, delicious, but a little 'rubbery'...as oftentimes these healthy cookies are.  Just so you're aware.

They are mighty tasty too.  I did just as Stacy suggested....I enjoyed them dipped in yogurt...What a lovely combo!

AND WHAT A WAY TO BEGIN THE DAY!

Thanks much to Stacy of Stacy Makes Cents for sharing another
delicious, frugal recipe from her kitchen. I adapted her lovely creation just a tad. 

Not only are these 'handfuls', tasty and filling - I LOVE a recipe that I can stir  by hand and not have to drag out the mixer!


HEALTHY OATMEAL RAISIN BREAKFAST COOKIES 

3/4 c. rolled oats 

3/4 c. oat flour

2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 - 1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

(I use less of freshly grated)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 egg

3 Tb. honey (or agave nectar)

1/4 c. plain Greek yogurt

1/4 c. chopped nuts

1/4 c. raisins or dried cranberries 

Preheat oven to 375. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or non-stick foil                                        (or spray foil lined pan)

In medium bowl, combine dry ingredients - oats, oat flour (I placed a scant cup of oats in the blender and blended until powdery - measure to be sure you have 3/4 cup), baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Then add vanilla, egg, honey and yogurt. Stir until well blended.  Add in nuts and raisins. 

Spread cookie dough into 4 or 5 large cookies onto prepared pan. Shape with spoon and pat down a bit.  Bake 6 - 10 minutes or until done. 


Yield: 4 or 5 very large cookies
