My New Favorite Go -To Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

This is an awesome chocolate chip cookie recipe that uses wholesome ingredients!  Making chocolate chip cookies of any kind makes one feel like mother-of-the-year, but when they are hearty and still taste good, it makes me feel GREEAT! The butter and honey are what make these so yummy, and of course, the chocolate chips.  I love that the recipe uses whole wheat flour and oats, which make them hearty and filling.  The extra fiber in these keep the sugar spikes to a minimum.  I also love that the butter is melted, so no worrying about taking the time to soften the butter, and I use just a single spoon to mix these.  Super simple!

I found this recipe on Heavenly Homemakers.  I love her recipes because she uses whole ingredients, and they are super simple.  She calls these “Giant Breakfast Cookies.”  They have a bit too much butter in them for me to feel comfortable serving them for breakfast, although they are hearty enough. I think they make a great snack and are perfect for my girls lunch boxes.  I make mine small, so I can say “yes!” when my girls ask for seconds and thirds.  Tricky, huh?

1 cup butter, melted (I used Earth Balance)
¾ cup honey
2 eggs
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla
½ cup buttermilk (to make dairy-free buttermilk, use soy or almond milk, +1 TBSP vinegar)
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups whole rolled oats
1 cup raisins or chocolate chips
Mix butter, honey, eggs, salt, cinnamon, soda, vanilla and buttermilk. Stir in flour and oats. Fold in raisins or chocolate chips. Scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Allow cookies to cool 3-4 minutes on cookie sheet before removing cookies to cool on a wire rack.
