Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies | Sprinkles For Breakfast

Sometimes, when I get my hands on a really soft and chewy and delicious oatmeal raisin cookie, I think…

“MAYBE, JUST MAYBE…I LIKE OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES?!”

Most of the time, I would never dare to share that opinion out loud.

It is definitely not a very popular cookie opinion in the world we live in. But… I feel like this is a safe space where I can freely voice my opinion with you guys without getting shamed. So here it goes…

I LOVE OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES.

There, I said it.

And these oatmeal raisin cookies definitely fit in that soft and chewy and delicious category. They do, however, have an unusual ingredient in them – wheat germ.

WHAT IS WHEAT GERM?

By definition, wheat germ is the reproductive part of the plant that germinates and forms wheat grass.

I’m not going to lie…I don’t really know what that means, but I love what it does to these cookies. It gives them a little extra nuttiness that a lot of oatmeal cookies are missing. You know – a little extra umph.

I also believe that adding the wheat germ in there makes these cookies healthy – which is definitely not true. But that’s what I tell myself when I am eating 4 of them in one sitting.

Wheat Germ can be a little difficult to find. But it is usually in the grocery store near the oatmeal in the cereal aisle. Any brand is fine. And if you can’t find it at your local store, you can always order it here.

Wheat germ comes in two forms – raw or toasted. For this recipe, use toasted. But if you can’t find toasted, don’t panic. Raw is fine. You just have to spread about 1/2 -1 cup on a baking sheet and pop it in the oven for 5-10 minutes at 350 degrees. It may start to turn a little brown, but you know it is done when you open the oven and smell the nutty flavor.

Happy Baking!

Just found this old video and I cried laughing because…
1. I still wear 99.9% black
2. I still do handstands at home
3. I’m teaching free food photo classes this week!

So it felt appropriate to repost. And also…that video of me doing the “vault” is just too good not to share.

If you haven’t signed up for the live class, check out the link in my bio. May or may not break out a handstand during class. It’s going to be live. So anything is possible! 🙌
