115 grams unsalted grass fed cow butter (you can use reduced fat version for lower fat content)
100 grams of stevia or other sweetener of your choice (sucralose or liquid sweetener)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 whole fresh egg
100 grams whole wheat flour (or any type of flour like oat,almond or plain)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch of Himalayan,table or sea salt
120 grams rolled quick oats
50 grams raisins
50 grams roasted walnuts or pecans (chopped)
Beat the butter with stevia in large bowl with hand mixer or by hand.
Add the egg and vanilla extract and continue beating.
In other bowl,combine the flour,rolled oats,baking soda,sea salt and ground cinnamon.Mix everything well.
Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with wet ingredients and stir everything together very well.
At the end,add the chopped walnuts or pecans and raisins to the mixture and stir.
Cove the bowl with towel or foil and put in the refrigerator for about 30-40 minutes to chill.
You can bake them immediately but they will not be so good.
Preheat the oven to 180C degrees.
Cover a baking dish with baking or parchment paper and spray some non-stick cooking spray over it.
With a spoon,scoop out some of the mixture and place it on the baking dish.Form a cookie.
Bake them for about 10-12 minutes until they are golden brown.
After that,remove them from the oven and set aside to cool down for about 5-10 minutes before serving.
That's it.You just made your own healthy and sweet oatmeal cookies at home.
The health benefits of the oats are well known.I want to show you that besides healthy,they are insanely sweet and tasty.I prefer them anyway.For breakfast,as a snack or just as a dessert after my lunch or dinner.
