Kim’s Guilt Free Cookies

Yup that’s right! Guilt free. (As long as you don’t eat the whole plate).

I purchased coconut sugar last night (I had no idea it existed). And because baking has been an obsession since I was a little girl I had to get to baking right away. I made this recipe up as I went and luckily I got it first try. I’d love to hear about any of your variations of this recipe :).

These cookies are soft and cake like. Hope you love them as much as I do.

Ingredients
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup coconut sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups milk of choice
2 cups oats
1/3 cup ground flax seed
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp pink salt
1 cup dried fruit (I used raisins)
1 cup nuts (I used walnuts and pecans)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350.
Put milk and oats in a bowl, stir and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
