These cookies are built for double duty. When we were coming up with the magic formula, Omega Seed Spice knew these Oatmeal Cookies had to taste good. They were going to have to be parked next to the holiday standbys and not only do battle on the tastebuds, but they'd have to win the hearts of festive merrymakers everywhere. Well, after the ultimate holiday taste test, the results are in: not only does this recipe make an indulgent, soft baked, crave worthy bite, but the Omega Seed Spice Oatmeal Cookie proved to be a major ally in the fight against cravings.
We’ve been challenged with a faulty oven this holiday season, and it has turned us into daredevils- reinventing our comfort food classics. All this experimentation has proven that we can’t cook a turkey in the toaster oven, but we have managed to find a really excellent workaround for our sweet tooth. We made this Healthy Oatmeal Cookie Recipe in the Toaster Oven, but can easily be adapted to the big leagues. The main difference is volume- you can cook up your whole batch at the same time in a regular oven.
2 TBSP Omega Seed Spice CinnaSpice
½ c butter (melted- we like Kerrygold)
½ c coconut oil (melted)
2 organic, free range eggs
½ c instant oats
1 ½ c Kodiak Cakes Flapjack and Waffle Mix
¾ c coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Combine all these ingredients in one large mixing bowl. When it comes together, use a teaspoon to form your batter into individual cookies and put them on ungreased parchment paper. Set your toaster oven to bake at 375 for 8-10 mins*, depending on how doughy you like ‘em. Enjoy!
*conventional oven: bake at 350 for 6-8 mins
We used BettterBody Foods LIVfit Superfood Blend to give the recipe a boost of fiber, protein and vitamins alongside our Omega Seed Spice CinnaSpice. We also had on hand a batch of custom Oats from My Oatmeal that added a bit of sweetness to the cookies- but we also tried it with Trader Joe's Organic Oats and Flax Instant Oatmeal and it still tasted delicious. The truth is- we had a blast making these amazing Oatmeal Cookies and they are pretty tough to mess up. So get to cooking!
After a long grilling season we found ourselves in need of something new at the table. That's when our Guest Chef Marcus McCree stepped in to save the day. Inspired by a summer full of comfort food cookouts, he whipped up this 1-2 punch that adds a rich heat to a classic side dish. Don't forget- these delicious biscuits come with an extra dose of protein, fiber, Omega-3 and vitamins from our Superfood Seeds!
