Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie (wheat-free)
Yes, I have posted yet another chocolate chip cookie. These are great snacks around our house. Especially when they include a variety of different grains and sweetened with honey or maple syrup. (Beats any store bought granola bar!) I typically add chocolate chips instead of raisins, but they are both good. :) This recipe is from one of my wholefoods cooking class.
6 tablespoons cold-pressed oil
1/2 cup maple syrup (I used 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup honey this time around)
1/2 cup water
1 cup whole grain kamut flour (a cousin of wheat)
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 cup oat bran
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups oatmeal (we always use extra thick rolled oats)
1/2 cup raisins (or chocolate chips)
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix oil, maple syrup, egg and 1/4 cup water in a medium mixing bowl. Beat well. Add dry ingredients gradually mixing well. Mix in raisins/chocolate chips and nuts. Drop on cookie sheet and bake about 10 minutes or until done to suit your taste. Enjoy!
