I Highly Suggest a Double Batch

I like cookies. I like cookies a lot.

//

I don’t bake cookies a lot…’cause I’d eat them a lot.

My sister sent me a recipe a few weeks ago. Cookies that she has created.

Wait for it…

HEALTHY. Cookies.

You heard it here first, folks.

Get out a couple …

Kimmy Sue Cookies

You heard it here first, folks.

Get out a couple of your mixing bowls. And make sure one of them is big, there’s a lot of healthy ingredients in this cookie! Now, lets do this thing!

How to make Kimmy Sue Cookies: Printable

In your first mixing bowl, combine all of these dry ingredients:

  1. 2 1/2 cup wheat flour (un-bleached)
  2. 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  5. 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  6. 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt

In your second mixing bowl, combine these together and stir together very well:

  1. 1 stick real butter, unsalted and melted
  2. 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  5. 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Make sure the mixture is very well stirred, then add:

  1. 1 cup raisins
  2. 1 cup dried cranberries
  3. 1 cup oatmeal
  4. 1 cup walnuts or nut of your choice, finely chopped
  5. 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  6. 1 cup green zucchini, grated
  7. 1 cup yellow zucchini, grated
  8. 1 cup carrots, grated

Mix together very well.

Slowly add the dry ingredients from the first bowl to the ingredients in the second bowl, about a cup at a time. Mix thoroughly before adding next cup, until all the dry ingredients are incorporated.

Place rounded by teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake on lightly sprayed cookie sheets at 375°F for 10-12 minutes.

This recipe is adaptable, you can exchange ingredients. For example, chocolate chips can be changed to cherry chips or the nuts can be almonds.

*WARNING* Once you start eating these, you will find it difficult to quit cold-turkey. I highly suggest a double batch, to combat those cravings.

    These sound great, and it just so happens that my boyfriend took the last of our cookies in his lunch today. I think I’m going to have to make these right away!

    Thank you for this, Rachel!

    Definitely want to make these! Rachel, when you say “wheat flour” do you mean whole wheat?

    @AnnieB I use unbleached flour but it was not whole wheat. I think if youre familiar with substituting whole wheat and understand the differences in leavening and moisture then you could try it with whole wheat. I just specified “wheat” because I’ve been reading so many posts lately on blogs using all kinds of different flours.

    P.S. I inputted the recipe into CalorieCount.com and found that each cookies is roughly 80is calories. But they are GOOD calories!

    Made them this morning, and I used 1 cup white flour and 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour. They were good! The dough was pretty hard to mix with all those add-ins, so I used my hands at the end. The recipe made a big batch, so I froze about half for the next cookie emergency.

    I think next time I’ll double the spices as I like things spicy, but they were very good as is. And I bet you could chop up the zuke and carrots in the food processor and veg-phobic kids wouldn’t know they were eating healthy.

    Thank you Rachel, and STH, for the info on the flour. Looking forward to trying them!
