The Wholesome Cookie

These soft, chewy healthy oats cookies are bound to be your favorite this baking season. The use of rolled oats not just makes them little chewy but also gives texture. Studded with raisins for some extra sweetness which is perfectly balanced by the spice mix.

Now breakfast is usually a huge struggle with my toddler. Any version of oats is completely rejected but he does like biscuits and cookies. So, I decided to make oats cookies because what’s available in the store has an excess of refined flour and sugar. After 2-3 different versions of oats cookies, I kind of fell in love with this recipe. I add walnuts, pumpkin, and coconut in these cookies, as  together they create magic. The baking process will leave your kitchen smelling like pumpkin pie with hints of coconut. These cookies are guilt-free indulgences and I usually end up having more than one. However, even though my son doesn’t eat more than one and at times just a half, I am happy he is eating something healthy.

The best part about these cookies is the time required to make them. They are ready in just half an hour. Absolutely fussy free…..no whisk no double boiler just you and your spatula. And they happen to be just perfect Christmas gifts too……all the more reason to make them.
