I wanted to share a recipe with you that my kids LOVE to have for breakfast. I actually call these Breakfast Cookies, but I think they are going to become the recipe I fall back on for cookies to make for snacks. They have no sugar (honey instead), and the flour and oats are soaked overnight to make them more digestible. Anyway…we love these cookies…I hope you do too!
Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies
The night before mix up the following, cover, and let sit overnight:
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup buttermilk (I use my homemade buttermilk)
- 1-1/3 cups whole wheat flour (fresh ground is best!)
- 1 cup whole rolled oats
In the morning add:
- 1 egg
- 1 t. vanilla
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/2 t. cinnamon
- 1/2 t. baking soda
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Use a spoon or cookie scoop to drop dough onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Notes: I use a small cookie scoop and get about 3 dozen cookies out of this recipe. You could also couple this recipe to make a huge batch. Freeze them for snacks later! Enjoy!
