I used this recipe as a way to experiment with two new items I’ve been waiting to try: raw cane sugar and chia seeds. I wanted to make a clean cookie and I figured the simplest to start with would be an oatmeal cookie. I used this recipe as a starting point and substituted as necessary to clean the recipe up.
1 stick salted organic butter
1/2 cup raw cane sugar
1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
3/4 cup whole wheat flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup milled chia seeds (optional)
Mix all ingredients well. I refrigerated the dough for about 30 minutes in an attempt to avoid this disaster, then rolled them into small balls and popped them into the oven at 325 for about 15 minutes.
