Hearty Oat Cookies

Updated: Mar 10, 2023

All the flavor, a fraction of the sugar! These cookies have great taste while also giving you some nutrition with each bite.


  • 1/2 c. whole-wheat flour

  • 1/4 c. all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 1 pinch Kosher salt

  • 1 c. quick-cooking oats

  • 1 c. unsweetened shredded coconut

  • 1/2 c. walnuts

  • 1/4 c. golden raisins

  • 1/4 c. dried cranberries

  • 1/4 c. pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter

  • 3 tbsp. Honey

  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda

  • 3 tbsp. boiling water



Heat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add the oats and coconut and toss to combine. Fold in the walnuts, raisins, cranberries, and pepitas.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and honey. In a small bowl, combine the baking soda and boiling water, then add to the butter mixture (it will become frothy).

Make a well in the center of the oat mixture, pour in the butter mixture and mix to combine.

Using wet hands, form the mixture into 15 balls (about 1/4 cup each) and place on the prepared sheets, spacing them 1 1/2 inches apart.

Gently press each ball down so it is 1/2 inch thick and bake until golden brown, 16 to 17 minutes. Let cool completely on the baking sheets.
