Healthier Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
I should call these “snow day” cookies. After two days stuck inside, I was desperate for activities. I asked the kids if they wanted to help me make cookies. Their response? “Only if we get to eat them!” After I assured them we could eat our masterpiece, I had to invent cookies using ingredients we had on hand. And that’s how these healthier oatmeal cookies were born!
When we think of Oatmeal Cookies, we assume they are healthy, right? But, a vast majority of recipes call for a half cup of sugar for one dozen cookies. That’s nearly a TABLESPOON of sugar in each cookie. Yikes! For this recipe, I was determined to alter that. And add some stuff of good nutritional value.
But, I didn’t really mention any of this to the kids as they helped me. The resulting cookies are wonderfully delicious. And sweet, too. So, I think I’ll just keep my little secret.
