I Tried it and I Liked it: Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

I like this recipe. It makes just a small batch, which is fine. These cookies have just the right amount of sweetness, in my opinion.

Here's the original recipe.

And here's my modified version.

Healthy Oatmeal Cookies (with Honey)


Dry ingredients

1 cup whole wheat flour (a pinch more depending on the moisture of the mix)
1 1/2 cups of Large Flake Rolled Oats (smaller flake is ok too)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp Cinnamon

Wet ingredients

1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 egg (beat with 1 Tbsp Water)
1 tsp Vanilla
1 banana
1/4 cup shredded zucchini


In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
In a medium bowl, mix all the wet ingredients together. Hint: when measuring out the honey, spray the measuring cup with oil or baking spray--your honey won't stick).
Mix the wet stuff with the dry stuff. If the mixture seems too wet, add a bit of flour. If it isn't binding together very well, you may wish to add an egg white.
COOL the mix for 20 minutes in the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 335 degrees (lower temperature due to the honey in the recipe which will burn more easily).
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto your baking sheet (I recommend lining the baking sheet with parchment paper). Press down with a fork to ensure even cooking.
Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes or until golden on the bottom of the cookie. The cookies freeze very well and make a great snack! Enjoy.
