How to Make Healthy Crispy Oatmeal Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat your oven to 350'F
  2. Using a large electric mixer, add the earth balance to the bowl and on medium high mix for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, coconut or plain sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined scraping the bowl as you go.
  3. Beat in the egg, vanilla until combined. Beat in the flour, and stir in the rolled oats, flax seed meal, wheat germ, chocolate, cranberries and walnuts. The dough will be sticky and thick.
  4. Drop by teaspoons onto an "UNGREASED" cookie sheet. I have a gold coloured one. It's very heavy but works like a charm as nothing sticks to it.
    Space the cookies 2" apart, they spread.
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes (I did mine for 10). They should be lightly browned on the top. Let the cookies cool for a minute then transfer to a wire rack. Makes around 3 dozen crispy cookies. Enjoy!
