Recipe: Healthy Farmer Cookies

Healthy Farmers Cookies

This picture doesn’t do them justice. They’re thick, dense with ‘stuff’, and addictive.

If you don’t have all of the below ingredients, feel free to mix it up and use whatever you do have on hand, like dried cranberries or nuts.

Ingredients

  1. 1 c. butter
  2. 1/2 c. white sugar
  3. 1/2 c. brown sugar
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 1 tbsp. vanilla
  6. 2 c. flour (whole wheat works)
  7. 1 tsp. cinnamon
  8. 1 tsp. soda
  9. 1 tsp. powder
  10. 1.5 tsp. salt
  11. 1 c. quick oats
  12. 1/2 c. bran flakes (or any dry cereal you have on hand)
  13. 1/2 c. sunflower seeds
  14. 1/4 c. flax seeds
  15. 1/4 c. sesame seeds
  16. 1/4 c. wheat germ (or bran)
  17. 1 c. Callebaut chocolate chips
  18. 1 c. unsweetened coconut flakes

Directions

  1. Cream butter in large bowl. Beat in sugars, then add eggs and vanilla.
  2. In a separate medium bowl, mix ingredients 11 to 18. Stir in butter, then add all remaining ingredients.
  3. Roll 1” balls onto cookie trays (I don’t pat them down so they stay nice, round and moist in the middle) and bake for 10 – 12 minutes at 350F.
