Shyea. I know. What a ridiculous question.
We can't indulge all the time or else we'd break the calorie bank.
Yes, cookies can have whole wheat flour.
And other good-for-you ingredients.
And yes, they still taste good.
Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
Makes 18 cookies
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup quick oats, divided
1 tablespoon flax seed
1 tablespoon wheat germ
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
Process 1/2 cup quick oats and flax seed in a coffee grinder or spice mill until finely ground. Whisk all dry ingredients together and set aside.
Use a one-ounce scoop to form the cookies, placing 3-4 inches apart so the cookies have room to spread. Bake at 350 degrees 9-11 minutes until browned.
Allow the cookies to set up on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a rack to cool.
Grab one or two for a sweet post-workout snack! Finally, a cookie you don't have to hide from yourself.
