Shaydons’ Favorite Oatmeal Cookies 

Print Friendly 


This was my sons’ favorite school time cookie while growing up.
The original recipe called for sugar and was tasty, but over the years I’ve slowly changed this recipe by substituting some ingredients...mothers sometimes have to be tricky.

Alternatives to sugar:
Brown rice syrup, maple syrup, applesauce or agave nectar.
Alternatives to Flour:
There are many variations of flour on the shelf these days, and lots of people to food sensitivities, why not try buckwheat flour or brown rice flour.

1 cup butter
1 tsp baking soda (non almuninum)
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/3 cup boiling water
½ cup brown rice syrup or maple syrup
1 cup rolled oats
1 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup quinoa flakes
1 tsp salt
½ cup chopped nuts
1 tsp vanilla
¾ cup chocolate chips or raisins

1.Beat butter until creamy.
2.Add syrup and applesauce and beat.
3.Add vanilla.
4.Add flour and salt, mix well.
5.Dissolve baking soda in boiling water and blend into mixture.
6.Stir in nuts, oats and chips.
7.Roll into balls and flatten with fork.
8.Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Notes: I hope you enjoy *To make this gluten free, switch the oats to quinoa flakes and flour to your choice of gluten free. It is a very forgiving recipe.

Wellness Tip
Soy sauce
Did you know that low sodium soy sauce might still contain 600 mg of sodium per tablespoon? That's about 25% of the -recommended daily intake. Remember - a reduced sodium food, while often better than the original, is not always a low sodium food.
