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!

Basically, if you can eat it, you can use luster dust on it! But here are my l favorite ways to use it:

- Royal Icing Cookies
- Fondant cakes
- Buttercream Cakes/Cupcakes (but buttercream must be cold when applied)
- Chocolate Covered anything (including cake pops)
- Splattered on brownies

My roommate hates glitter more than anything…but I can’t stop using it! Look how amazing our @sweetsindeed Edible Glitter Spray makes this cupcake look!

But I have agreed to only use glitter in my studio though. I feel like that is a fair compromise 🙌

She’s not like a regular spreadsheets. She’s a COOL spreadsheet. Also quick shout-out to Olive’s poop bag hanging out of the drawer in the back!

But The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is truly amazing because it includes our advanced pricing calculator that factors in your costs, labor, overhead and profit in order to give you a final price (but you don’t have to do any of the math!!) You never have to stress about pricing your goods and services again.

But that’s not all.

Here are some other things it does:
- makes pricing quick and easy for anyone who works with food
- specific ingredient section to cost out your recipes
- 100% customizable (gives you final prices based off your own costs and materials)
- all the formulas and formating are already done for you - you just have to input your data in a few cells
- includes a cost per unit calculator
- lessons to help you figure out how much you should charge per hour and how much profit you should make!

Right now you can get it for 50% off. Check the details with the link in my bio.

The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is actually designed to be the opposite of a “regular” spreadsheet. It is there to make things LESS stressful - becuase we have done all the hard (and boring) work for you.

It makes pricing quick and easy. All you have to do is input your info in a few cells and it automatically gives you the price you should charge for your goods and services.

It’s the best thing ever.

See how you can use it to price all the goods and services in your business in my bio!

Pricing was one of my biggest struggles in the beginning. I was always overthinking it and trying to analyze what other people were charging.

But with the Pricing Calculator, I no longer had to stress out about it. The calculator simply just told me what I needed to charge. It was AMAZING and a total game-changer.

And now I want to help make pricing easy for you too. Check the link in my bio to see how you can use the calculator in your business!
