I'm so excited about this quick cut out cookie recipe to share with you all today!
I whipped this one up yesterday afternoon so my kids could try out there new rolling pins and shark/whale cookie cutters. AND I wanted to play with my HOME MADE cookie stamp.
Eggless Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cut Out Cookies
1 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tbs ground flax seed
2 tbs of water (more if needed)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbs vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350.
In your electric mixer cream butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in maple syrup, oats, flour, flax seed, and vanilla. Add in water a few drops at a time while mixing on medium/low speed. When the dough starts to come together you can stop adding water.
Pat dough into a disk wrap in plastic and chill for 1/2 an hour.
On a lightly floured surface roll dough out to about an 1/8 of an inch cut into desired shapes. Bake for about 10 minutes. (depending on cookie cutter size baking times may vary)
I loved this cookie, it super crunchy (the way I like) it would be fantastic with a simple glaze over it as well. But this Mama wants to cut the sugar when its not needed! The boys were just as happy with glazeless cookies!
