Honey Oatmeal Cookies

From All Recipes. com

I’ve been on a search for the perfect, healthy snacks for my young sons, and I came across a wonderful honey oatmeal cookie recipe this weekend and wanted to share it with you all.

These cookies contain no sugar (!!!), have a nice doughy texture, and are perfect for afternoon snacks. They go great with milk and, for the adults, coffee. I think they’d also be great with raisins or nuts added to the dough.

I found the recipe via All Recipes.com and sightly altered the ingredients to include butter rather than Crisco.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup honey
  • egg
  • 3/4 cup butter (or shortening, as the original recipe calls for)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
 And here are the directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat together shortening, honey, egg, water, and vanilla until creamy. Add combined remaining ingredients; mix well.
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 12 to 15 minutes.

That’s it! Super easy and perfect for all ages.
