Whole-Wheat Honey Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

“Who says you can’t have cookies for breakfast?”  These were the words that ran through my mind as I read the recipe for these cookies.  Honey, oats, coconut oil, coconut flakes, raisins, cinnamon – this is like a bowl of baked oatmeal with some flour and a few other ingredients added!  The honey in these cookies do the job of satisfying my sweet tooth without the guilt of unhealthy sugars!

Needless to say, I was anxious to try these cookies when I saw the recipe.  Would they really be good using only whole wheat flour?  Many cookies I’ve tried that contain only whole wheat flour don’t always taste the best.  Or maybe the cookie batter tastes great, but the actual cookie did not result in something I would ever dare to make for anyone.  I was in for a pleasant surprise!  The batter was delicious….and so were the cookies!

Recipe:

2 cups freshly milled whole wheat flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 cup coconut flakes
1 cup raisins
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup coconut oil {or butter}
1 cup raw honey
2 eggs

Mix the dry ingredients together.  Stir in the wet ingredients and mix well.  Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375° for 7-9 minutes.  Yields about 4 dozen cookies. {We like our cookies a little doughy, so I take them out before they are completely done :)}.

You may wonder if I’ve ever actually made these cookies for breakfast.  Yes, I really have!  My girls have woken up to freshly made Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and a glass of raw milk. :-)

Have you ever made cookies for breakfast?

Grain Mill Wagon Experience: For years I have desired to make my own flour, and have heard from several others that they preferred the WonderMill as their favorite. I was thrilled to participate in this challenge and discover for myself how simple the WonderMill is to use, clean and store. I am still amazed every time I see wheat berries or oat groats turn into beautiful flour in a matter of seconds! Through this challenge I have discovered that making my own flour saves money and is more nutritious for my family. I appreciate this opportunity and will be recommending the WonderMill for years to come.

    Yes, I have made cookies for breakfast & enjoyed them! Mine had bacon and flaked cereal in them; not the “healthiest”, but delicious non the less! :)

    Great looking recipe. Is there anything I can substitute for the coconut flakes? Are the coconut flakes taste noticeable? Thank you.

    • I personally do not think you can taste the coconut in the cookies. I do like coconut, but one of my daughters that doesn’t care for coconut really likes these cookies. I purchase the unsweetened really fine coconut flakes, and not the bigger, sweeter flakes that the average store carries – this would also make a difference. You could try adding more oats in place of the coconut. Thanks for the question, Sue! :)
