Makes 24 good sized cookies
¾ cup of butter
¾ of brown sugar
½ cup of granulated sugar
2 tbsp of water
1 tsp of vanilla
¾ cup of whole wheat flour
1 tsp of baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3 cups rolled oats
2 cups of assorted seeds, nuts, dried fruit and chocolate.
(I use cranberries, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and dark chocolate chips)
- Cream butter until light. Beat in sugars. Add egg, water and vanilla. Mix well.
- In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in rolled oats.
- Stir dry mixture into wet. Add seeds, nuts, etc…
- Using an ice-cream scoop drop mounds onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten slightly and bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven until cookies are done to your preference. Cool on racks (~15-20 minutes).
