Oatmeal Cookies

Don't let the summer heat keep you from baking! Pour an ice cold glass of milk and enjoy some (semi-healthy) cookies!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour*
  • 4 cups (16 oz. by weight) dry oats
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • spices of your choice: cinnamon, clove, nutmeg 
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 sticks butter (chilled)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla 
  • add-ins: pecans, raisins, chocolate chips 

 

Steps: 

  1. in a medium bowl, mix together flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and spices
  2. in a stand mixer, cream the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth
  3. slowly add your dry ingredients to the butter mixture
  4. once the dough starts to come together, mix in your add-in of choice (personally, I like all three!) 
  5. scoop out your dough onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet (about 1/2 Tbsp. size)
  6. place in freezer for 10-20 minutes (the colder the dough, the more their form will hold while baking)
  7.  set your oven to 350 and bake on the lower rack for 10-12 minutes
  8. enjoy!

* If you don't have any freshly milled oat flour (I'm so spoiled at the Mill!), you can always use our White Sonora All Purpose flour or put dry oats in your food processor (or do a 50/50 of the two)!
