Healthier Version of Oatmeal - Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup [raw] honey (or pure maple syrup)
1/2 cup [organic] canola oil (or grapeseed oil, coconut oil, real butter)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp real vanilla
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 cups rolled oats (or granola)
1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour (or 1/3 cup of almond meal and 2/3 cup of flour)
1 cup raisins (omitted)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (omitted)
1/2 cup of Enjoy Life chips
Heat oven to 375. Combine all the ingredients except the oats, flour, raisins (or any of the special additions) and mix thoroughly. Stir in the oats, flour and your special additions of choice (I used the chocolate chips). Drop the batter by teaspoonfuls on a cookie sheet and bake until golden brown. (I set the timer at 11 minutes but by the 3rd dozen, I dropped the timer down to 8.)
