Honey and Oatmeal Cookies

Desserts do not have to be completely off limits when you have weight loss surgery. You should always follow your surgeons guidelines, however there are times when you want something special. I made these cookies for my mother-in-law who is diabetic and she loved them. They are pretty healthy and made with splenda and honey.

  • 6 Tablespoons room temp butter

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar Splenda

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup wheat flour

  • 2 Tablespoons water

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 3 cups oats

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • any add in's you would like, I used 1/2 a cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips, but you can use chopped nuts, dried fruit whatever you like

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together honey, brown sugar Splenda, butter, eggs, water and vanilla. Add in flour, salt, baking soda, oats, cinnamon and what ever else you add in. Mix well, I used my hands. Put on foil or parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes. Makes a little over 2 dozen cookies. These are soft and delicious!
