Marshall's Healthy (but not gross) Oatmeal Cookies

Bake: 8 min. per batch
Oven: 375 degrees F
Makes: About 48 Cookies

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (100% cane sugar)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
13/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole ground wheat flour (you may need to add more until the consistency is right)
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup of raisins (or all-natural chocolate chips)

Start with the butter and whip in the eggs and sugar. Then add everything else. Add the flour, raisins and oats last and remember to add more flour, if needed.


  1. Have you ever tried this with honey in place of b. sugar? I'm wondering if it would change the consistency and ruin it or if it's a possible alternative...?

  2. Marshall's experimented with honey and he still haven't figured it out, but I think real maple syrup would taste really good. I'll see what the expert says.
