When I made my High-Altitude Chocolate Cake I told you all that my FIL likes low sugar desserts. These cookies are for him; so if you’d like then add ½ cup more of sugar or for some natural sweetness add raisins.
Low-Sugar Bob’s Red Mill Granola Oat Cookies Recipe
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
½ cup light brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup flour
2 large eggs
½ cup wheat germ
½ cup ground flaxseed
2 cups quick oats
1 cup Bob’s Red Granola (any desired flavor, I used natural)
1. Preheat oven to 350oF.
2. Cream together butter and sugar. Add vanilla, baking soda, and cinnamon. While mixing drop in ½ cup of flour, then egg, repeat. Add wheat germ then flaxseed in the same way. Then add
oats and granola.
[Stir in optional items such as 1 cup of chocolate chips or raisins. Stir well.]
3. Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown.
I rolled my dough into balls; these cookies keep their shape so make flat or drop cookies for whatever you desire as a shape after baking. My whole family (including the kids) loved this low-sugar option. I made half with the patch without raisins and half with, so this is another option for your family to enjoy!
