If you don’t like really sweet treats but yet you do like cookies, this is definitely a recipe you should try. My dad isn’t a big fan of sweets, my mom loves oatmeal and my sisters love my treats ^.^ so whenever I make these babies they’re gone in a heartbeat ❤ :)! When I first made oatmeal cookies I was trying to stay healthy so I used a vegan alternative, I’m leaving the substitutions on parenthesis if you want to try that.
- – 2c all-purpose flour (or 3c quick cooking oats)
- – 3 cups quick cooking oats (avoid this for vegan alternative)
- – 1tsp baking soda
- – 1tsp salt
- – 1 ½ ground cinnamon
- – 1tbsp cocoa powder
- – 1 cup butter (soften) (1/4c + 2tbsp extra light olive oil)
- – 1c sugar (1/2c honey)
- – 2 eggs (2 ripped bananas)
- – 1tsp vanilla extract
If you choose to use the vegan alternative just keep in mind that it WILL look healthy, the consistency will be slightly different (softer, most likely) and it will taste different (less sweet), they both taste good but to be honest fat is more delicious haha! Make sure to use EXTRA LIGHT olive oil, you don’t want that nasty taste of extra virgin olive oil on your sweet treats…! You can add raisins/chocolate/nuts to the recipe just add them after mixing all the listed ingredients.
