These healthy and crispy oatmeal cookies are SO good, so good that I couldn’t stop eating them and ate them all in one sitting….ooops! These are the best crispy oatmeal cookies I have ever made! I wrote this post quickly after making them because I wanted you to try them. I’m sure you will fall in love with these crunchy & healthy oatmeal cookies!
Making healthy cookies that taste delicious can be tricky but this recipe proves it’s possible. These crispy cookies have some of the heartiest ingredients I know. All you need are: oats, wholemeal flour, brown sugar, organic eggs, cinnamon and a bit of butter. The main ingredients are oats, well more specifically oat flour. I used to buy oat flour until I realised I can blend oats to make my own.
There are many oatmeal cookie recipes out there but most of them are chewy in texture while I wanted crunchy cookies. Which one do you prefer? After days of trial and error this was the best recipe to share with you. On the blog we have other healthy cookie recipes like my Banana Oatmeal Cookie and the Peanut Butter Cookies however these are more chewy in texture so I was pretty freaking excited about this recipe.
The other amazing thing in this cookies are the apple pieces in them. It was a last minute addition, but I’m so happy we added them because it gives a fresh and fruity touch to the cookies. Nobody will be able to resist these pretty cookies.
Why not double on ingredients and you can make homemade granola too? To make homemade granola you will need almost the same ingredients. Once the oven is hot enough you can bake the cookies and granola at the same time. There are a lot of granola recipes on the blog, choose the one you like more and you are ready to start.
Let me know how it turns out for you! I hope to see photos of your cookies on Instagram with the hastag #shoothecook. Have a lovey day!
