My family loves these oatmeal cookies, and with my made-over version, they are a great way to sneak extra fiber and grains into their diet! I reduce the sugar, add whole wheat, use rolled oats and add dates (for extra fiber!)

Directions

  1. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in vanilla extract. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a separate bowl; stir into butter mixture. Fold in oats and dates. Cover and chill dough for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two baking sheets.
  3. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto baking sheets. Flatten each cookie with a large fork.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

These are DELISH!!! I used 1/2 coconut oil, 1/2 unsweetened applesauce, and Stevia in place of sugar. I didn't use dates nor nuts----but some butterscotch chips I had left over. So yummy. I will make these again for sure.

These cookies were fabulous!! We used raisins instead of dates and did add some butterscotch chips. One word of caution....be sure to let the dough chill long enough. We formed the balls after only one hour of chilling and they got a bit sticky and gooey on our hands. We solved that my dipping our hands in flour before rolling each ball but chilling longer would have helped that. Can't wait to make them again and they are filling.

So here's what I did: 1) I added 1 cup of pecans to the mix 2) I did not chill the dough, just dropped it by teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheet 3) Didn't press down the mounds of dough with a fork, just let them bake puffed up, and got a softer cookie Everything worked out just great!
